It was truly a pleasure working with Jeannette at SaskPower. She welcomed me to PSC and trained me. I feel so blessed to have worked beside Jeannette for so many years. I learned a lot from her wealth of knowledge and I have some of her favorite recipes that I treasure. Jeannette was so proud of her family and beamed when she shared photos and memorable moments. She was such a wonderful, giving lady. She will be deeply missed but not forgotten. My sincere and heartfelt condolences to her family and friends.
