Jean was born to Walter and Lila Notley on October 21, 1925 and passed away peacefully in the Olds Hospital on October 22, 2019 at the age of 94. She was raised on the family homestead in the Innis Lake district. She married the love of her life, Ralph Richards, on October 29th 1947.
Jean loved horses all her life, loved to dance, all kinds of music, enjoyed all aspects of nature, especially birds, she was a great cook and an avid gardener. Her true passion in life was her art. She won many awards and her paintings are her family and friends treasured possessions.
It was always important to Jean to make time for visiting with friends and neighbors as well as attending family reunions with their extended families. Her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren have followed this example and love spending time together.
Jean was an active member of various organizations: Coburn Women’s Institute; Presbyterian Church and Ladies Auxiliary and Coburn Community Club. Both Jean and Ralph enjoyed farm life but chose to move into Olds in 2016.
Jean is lovingly remembered and missed by her husband of 72 years, Ralph. Daughters Terri (Sandy) Loree of Olds; Trudy (Allan) Patterson of Brooks; Debra Hoffmann (Dan Beaudry) of Hanna; and sons Gary (Kathy) Richards of Olds; Kelly Richards (Sand Boger) of Olds.

Eleven great children with a new addition expected soon.

So sorry to hear of Jean's passing, I have many fond memories of visits to the Notley and Richard's farms starting first in the 1950's when I travelled to the Olds with my grandmothe Maude Buckmaster (Notley). Their hospitality to us was always so great on every visit I regret I have not been there for the last couple of Notley reunions. Love to all. Christopher Gadsden and family ,Chilliwack BC
