Description
The nurses at Ross Memorial Hospital combed Jean Pollock’s hair, brushed her teeth and bathed her gently before she took her last breath [March 28] at 8:05am.

Jean was in isolation, fighting Coronavirus since Monday. Her husband Ted is a resident at Pinecrest Nursing Home in Bobcaygeon and Jean visited him daily. She also volunteered at the home until two days before the home was closed to visitors.

Jean’s daughter, Pam Smith, lives in Vancouver and had been driving across the country to get to her mother and be closer to her family. The sad reality is even if she made it on time, she wouldn’t have been able to physically see her mother because she was in isolation.
