Although I did not know Jeannette personally, I always enjoyed seeing all the FB posts and all the fun Diane had with her mom. She was truly loved!

Matante, you will be eternally missed. You are at the center of many of us family members memories especially some of my childhood memories. I will always remember all the nights I spent the night at your house. You always reminded me of my grandmother & treated me the same too. You were a special human being who had the most selfless heart and never passed judgement. You were definitely very loved by all. I hope you're dancing in the sky with Memere Ouellete and Matante Irene. They've missed you. <3

Jeanette , I met you at St. Mary's hospital while working in the kitchen. We all had some good time working there and the best time was when I got a chance to become very good friends with Don. He is an amazing son, brother and partner and that is because of you ! You raised him to be the kind and gentle person that he is. You are an amazing person who has been through so much and through it all you had your smile. I loved seeing your smile. My mom Claudette was saying how much she also loved working with you . She said you were very kind to her and that you were a friend to her also. You also worked with 4 of my siblings. Each one of us had a special friendship with your children. We were a family and we had a lot of good laughs. You will be forever in our hearts. I wanted to post this poem for the family. Love Joline
When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me,
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today
Thinking of the many things
We didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you, and each time you think of me
I know you'll miss me too

To you all that were touched by Jeannette, my sincere condolences. Jeannette and I worked together for many years. She was there for many important times in my personal life’s journey. We had lots of laughs and yes, we may have had a few differences on the job, but never stopped caring about one another. One of the last memories I will share is when we had a party for Forest and we were teasing her about her love for wine. Instead of offering her a glass of wine, I presented her with a full bottle with a straw. We all had a good laugh and yes, she was a great sport. Will miss her. Rest In Peace Jeannette. Give Irene a hello for me. God bless you all for the love you left her with. She was a very lucky woman in that you all were there to make a not so great time better. Hugs.
