Baeda-Jean Henderson (Jacobson) passed away peacefully in her sleep on February 8, 2024 at the age of 81 in Cochrane, Alberta. Baeda was pre-deceased by her husband Harold Henderson and daughter Tammy Henderson. Baeda’s memory will be cherished by her sons Darcy, Murray (Cecile); grandchildren Roan, Von, Ava, Anica; sister Margaret (Gord) Murray; brother Walter Jacobson (Carmen) as well as many nieces and nephews.

Baeda was born and raised in Golden living the majority of her life in her beloved hometown. Baeda never stopped battling but ultimately was taken by dementia.

Baeda was a loving wife and mother and spent many hours enjoying and entertaining her grandchildren in the roll of “Granny”. A dedicated and talented golfer, Baeda won several Ladies and Sr. Ladies club championships at the Golden Golf Club. Prior to developing a passion for golf, Baeda loved riding and caring for her horses and was a member of the Golden Light Horse Club. Baeda loved to bake and we will all miss her famous cookies and huckleberry jelly.

A celebration of life will be held at the Golden Rec-Plex on Saturday, June 8th, 11 am, with a reception to follow.
