Lesley Elizabeth JUNG
JUNG, Lesley Elizabeth (nee Christien) April 16, 1953 - October 8, 2016 – Calgary, AB Lesley Jung, beloved wife of Jim Jung passed away on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at the age of 63 years. Lesley was born in Vernon, BC in 1953 where she lived until she graduated from Vernon Senior Secondary School in 1971. Lesley was class president in her graduating year and she was awarded the Ayres Cup for outstanding citizenship. After graduation Lesley went on to receive her Bachelor of Science degree at Brigham Young University in 1980 and became a Social Worker. A short while later Lesley decided to pursue another degree and in 1986 graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Education and then taught in the Calgary school district until her retirement. Lesley met her Jimmy, the love of her life in 1994 and they were married on July 22, 1995. Lesley lived a big and fulfilling life with her Jimmy. They both had a passion for travel and so began their many adventures around the world. Lesley loved to write so family and friends enjoyed their adventures through emails and blogs that Lesley would share during their travels. She was also an insatiable reader, a writer of poetry and a fantastic cook. Lesley was blessed with close friends from her school years and formed important and cherished friendships throughout her life. But most of all Lesley loved her family particularly her nieces and nephews and whenever she was needed she was always there for them. Most of them spent time living with Lesley and Jim at some point in their lives while they pursued school or new careers in Calgary. Lesley is survived by her loving husband Jim, and will be dearly missed by her nieces Michelle Vest (Ralph Talbot) her children Scott Vest (Laura), Hannah Vest (Shawn) and their son Dominic, her sister-in-law Del Christien and her children Carolyn (John) Adams and their children Tarek, Carter, Riyah, and Warren; Janee Loewen and her children Mason, Caleb, Lauren and Hannah; Lisa Bolt (Blair) and their children Jaxson, Lachlain and Kingston; Alexis Syvret (Blair) and their son Penn, nephews Doug Christien, his daughters Janelle and Josée and Joel Christien, and her very special adopted sister and her husband Anne and Ed McCrea and their children.
