Born in Sainte-Aurilie, Quebec, Canada, daughter of the late Adolphe and Regina (Berube) Gilbert. Jeanne had a strong passion for cooking and loved her cooking shows and her collection of cookbooks.

I had the extreme honor of taking care of Jeanne 3 years ago. She taught me how to be a better person to my family and friends. We loved to talk about old actors and singers. Loved her family! Unfortunately I haven't seen her in a few years but a piece of my heart was always with her. My heart goes out to her family who took the best care of her.
