Obituary of Jean McLarty


JEAN McLARTY January 22, 1923 – November 10, 2016 succumbed peacefully to the frailty of her years under the watchful care of the staff at Kensington Gardens, Toronto, where she resided since 2013. Jean grew up at 654 Lakeshore Ave., Hanlan’s Point, the daughter of Police Staff Sergeant Mansfield “Mac” McLarty of Puslinch (1878 – 1962) and Lottie (nee McConnell) of Dundalk (1885 – 1963). She was the older sister to Donald (1925 – 1988) and the twins Adam Hume (1926 – 1942) and John Franklin (1926 – 2012). Jean graduated from Jarvis Collegiate in 1939, Victoria College and the Department of Household Sciences in 1945, and the Ontario College of Education in 1946. Jean taught in the Forest Hill Village Schools (1948 – 1956) then as Head of the Home Economics Department at Burnhamthorpe Collegiate (1956 – 1960), Thistletown Collegiate (1960 – 1966) and finally Martingrove Collegiate (1966 – 1980) where she retired as Head of the Family Studies Department. In 2003 the Jean McLarty Volunteer Service Award was first presented in recognition of her 50 years with the Ontario Family Studies Home Economics Educators’ Association (1946 – 1996). Jean will be missed by all who remember her, especially those who cared for her these last years. A simple interment will take place in the spring at Park Lawn Cemetery.
