Jeannie Sands Dunabie (Corbett) was born on the 3rd August 1941. Jean was the only daughter to Jack Corbett of Crosshill and Bessie Sands Mair of Newmilns.  Jean served the town of Maybole faithfully for many years running JD Cameronís shop in the town. When Jean retired she really, really  missed Cameronís, she missed the staff who she counted as friends. Jean was very knowledgeable about materials and she missed helping people and chatting with folk. The two main things in Jeanís life were her family and her work.. Jean loved her garden, she was very knowledgeable about the garden and she loved Culzean and the walks there. Jean was very clever with her hands, knitting and sewing and she made wonderful wedding cakes; her home baking was wonderful. Jean was quiet by nature, she was a very faithful friend to have; once you made friends with Jean you had a friend for life and nothing for Jean was a bother.


Jean was never one for the limelight, she was a hard working background person, happy to do her bit behind the scenes. Jean was very sincere, a very reliable person and a long abiding memory for many will be her lovely smile. In life and in work, Jean set herself very high standards. Everything had to be just so, when Jean gave her word she kept it.  Jean was a woman of faith, she loved her church, never missed a Sunday and she really missed the church when she took ill. Jean bore her illness as she lived her life, with great dignity; she never complained and we thank God that Jean left this life with dignity and she is now at rest and at peace. Jean is survived by her husband John, daughters Annie and Yvonne, and grandchildren Laura, Hannah and Katie. Jean will be very sadly missed.
