Owen- Gallo, Jennie Madeline (nee Sleep)
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Jennie Owen- Gallo. Jennie was the youngest child of Bert and Bertha Sleep of Coles Island, New Brunswick. Her passing is mourned by her loving husband Ernie and her large extended family. Jennie grew up on a farm in Coles Island, NB with eight older siblings. She taught school in Coles Island and Saint John. She then moved to Feller College in Quebec where she taught High School. She married Lorne Owen in Hamilton, in 1967. Lorne passed away in 2001. Jennie worked as an H.C.A. at Wentworth Lodge, in Dundas. Although Jennie never had children of her own, she touched the lives of many nieces and nephews, step-children, grandchildren and great grandchildren in Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. Volunteering was always a big part of Jennie’s life. Her Church, The Canadian Red Cross, Rygiel Home, Canadian Bible Society, Interchurch Council, Telecare, Wellwood and more.

“ Promises Kept”
God never promised
In whatever we do that
We’d always be happy
And healthy too.
He never said life
Would be free of pain
But He said He’d be there
Time and time again
To bolster our spirits,
To lighten our way,
To give strength and courage
Day after day.
To make us feel worthy,
To give inner peace
And from life’s tensions
A loving release.
