Jean Schwedelsky, age 79, passed away on Sunday, April 22, 2018 at the General Hospital in Regina, SK. Jean Agnes Schwedelsky was born on October 14, 1938 in Gravelbourg, SK, the second child of Frank & Esther (Bodie) Hogg. Jean lived in Mortlach, SK and Caron, SK for her public school years, finishing Grade 12 in Kimberley, BC. She was adventurous, working various jobs from British Columbia to Ontario, finally settling back in Saskatchewan. She married Don Schwedelsky on November 16, 1964. Jean held many different jobs throughout her life including owning the News & Candy Corner in Taber, AB. She took a secretarial course and eventually worked for the RCMP, becoming the first female fingerprint analyst in Canada.

At that time Jean & Don relocated to Cadillac, SK to be closer to family.
