Dear John, Vera and family, I remember the little sister of my best friend growing up in Saskatoon, growing into a fine young woman, mother, teacher and friend. My mom loved your company while she lived in Vancouver. Visits over the years were great every time you visited Stoon. The years sped by. You will always hold a special place in our lives.

Jeanette was such a wonderful colleague to work with and an absolutely delightful friend outside of work. Our sincerest condolences to you John and all family members.

Jeanette had such a special way to light up the room -- she'd gracefully embrace and had the ability to make you feel that there was no one else present when you spoke. She was so proud of her family and I'd listen to my mom and her recount, compare and giggle swapping stories of us raising our own kids, their grandchildren. As an extended relative, it was oh, so natural to go to Uncle John's and Jeanette's house for holiday celebrations. I loved that modern condo in Toronto -- as a teenager, visiting I always thought they were so fancy living off the energy of the city. Fancy yes, humble yes, genuine always. Together they made my parents so happy when they traveled the world together. You could hear the happy memories in their voices as they recounted funny adventures. Forever will Jeanette be missed. I know you are still as graceful now as you will always be in spirit watching over us. xo Suzs
