My deepest sympathies to Jeannette's family. She was a wonderful person. I remember all her work with St. John's Ambulance and with my husband Herb Marshall, they were both devoted to that Association.

Our deepest condolences to John and his family.
We fondly remember serving with Jeannette in the early days at St. John Ambulance activites and, after she retired, reminiscing with her. Jeanette was such a caring and compassionate lady who always had a positive word to and about everyone she met. Her St. John colleagues will sadly miss this grand lady who was part of the foundation of this volunteer organization in Cornwall and S.D.&G..
