Foundation Feature Story
Giving Honours a Couple’s Lifetime of Commitment and Care
In 1962, when Isobel Jones and husband Gren made their first trip from Watrous to the Saskatoon Community Clinic, they couldn’t have imagined that 55 years later Isobel would still be a patient at the Clinic and that Gren would be a committed member until his passing in 1992.
In spite of living in Watrous, where there were doctors, over the years the couple made the trek to the Community Clinic in Saskatoon whenever they needed care. Even after she was on her own, Isobel continued doing so until finally moving to the city just five years ago.
Isobel says it was Gren’s commitment to co-operatives and her family’s support of that philosophy that was the impetus for that first trip from Watrous.
