It is with great sadness that the family of Jeanne Jessop announces the passing of their mother at the Chaleur Regional Hospital on June 27, 2020 at the age of 94.

Jeanne (Ferlatte) Jessop of Dalhousie, wife of the late George Jessop, was born in Dalhousie on October 14, 1925. She was the daughter of the late Theophile Ferlatte and the late Rose (Noel) Ferlatte.

Jeanne worked for the School Board until her retirement in 1988, then pursued her dream of writing and painting where she met wonderful lifelong friends. In 2014, she moved to a Bathurst retirement home where again she enjoyed the company of new friends and many visits from family and old friends. She had an unwavering zest for life and until the end was thrilled to be entertained musically by her family.

She is survived by her sons, John (Kathleen) Jessop of Bathurst, Mark (Dana) Jessop of Halifax; her daughters Patricia (Ian) McRae of Kemptville and Sandra (Richard) Roach of Oromocto; brothers Aurele, Roger, Guy, Andre (Iva) and Robert (Claircy) Ferlatte; sisters Camille Wallace, Claudette (Art) Guitar, Estelle (Raymond) Doucet; her grandchildren, Tara (Kyle), Laura (Matt) and Danika (Victor); Erik and Melanie Roach; Luke, Kevin and Logan Jessop; great grand-children Reanne, Madison and Brayden; many nieces and nephews. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband George, her brother Eddy and sister Antoinia as well as three brothers who died in infancy.

Special thanks to the staff of Résidence Le Royal, Résidence Vienneau and of the Chaleur Regional Hospital.

Visitation and a funeral mass will be held in Dalhousie at a future date.

Our condolences to all - John, Patty, Sandra & Mark. It doesn't seem so long ago that we lived two doors apart. Your mother was always so pleasant and easy to talk to.

Your mother was also a talented artist. We have one of her paintings (inherited from her scrabble buddy) in our bedroom.

Helen Wood (friend of Sandra and our Mom/mother-in -law) enjoyed playing scrabble with Jeanne later in life. No doubt they can resume their friendly rivalry.

We hope that your fond memories of your mother make your loss easier to bear.

I have so many nice memories of your mom. She was a very strong woman and I enjoyed each and every visit to her home. She was always welcoming. She even participated in decorations at my wedding many moons ago:) Our condolences to you all--John, Patty, Sandra & Mark...she was a gem and you all reaped the benefits of her strength and love.
