Camille and Mary brought Jeannette into the world in May 1930. To them she was their princess. Later came her two brothers George and Rene. The family led an adventuress life from working on the farm to helping in the store. This family showed great love and respect.
Soon Jeannette met Donald and he married his Queen. They built their castle in Fort Whyte and raised 4 boys (Howard, Ralph, Bruce and Duncan). Jeannette was a Home Engineer and provided good food, sweet desserts, fresh veggies, beautiful flowers and hosted several parties with her family or “The Gang”.
Jeannette was involved in many activities, bus trips to the casino, 5 pin bowling, carpet bowling, swimming, skiing, and seats on committees. She has a very active social calendar with her family and friends.
