Our family is deeply saddened by the loss of Auntie Jeanne. Her kindness and graciousness will forever be remembered. She was such a generous person, so patient with all of us growing up. Her warm smile was always so nice to see at every family and friends gathering over the decades. She was so sweet and thoughtful as well with the next generation, our own children. We will always cherish our memories of Auntie Jeanne. Her spirit will live on in our hearts and minds.

With love, Andrea, Chuck, Ella & Lucy

Our words cannot express our sorrow after hearing of Jeanne untimely passing. Jeanne was a wonderful person, always so generous and sharing. All those happy days when she and you, Larry drove or flew to be with Elaine, her hubby and the grandkids. And again, the fortune of sharing her love with Leslie's and husband's little ones. Those were the times her eyes sparkled and voice, getting excited, talking about each grandkid in detail.
May you take comfort in the love of family and friends during this difficult time.

Mrs. Chan was my 'high school mom' because I was always with Lesley at their house growing up. I have fond memories of her welcoming me, feeding me, and just being a really kind person. Even in the years after high school it was great running into Mrs. Chan. She'd always touch my shoulder, and ask about my life and family. Lesley and I would have playdates at her house with our kids, and she took care of this generation as well - making sure we were all happy and well fed. She was a gentle, kind person and her departure is tragic and too early. But she was also well-loved by her wonderful family and friends, and hopefully that provides her loved-ones with comfort. My heart goes out to her family at this time.

Everything came too sudden, it was shocking and painful to lose our aunt. Words cannot express our deepest sorrow and sadness at this moment. I am unable to say a word except burst out into tears when thinking of aunt Jeanne.
The first time we met aunt Jeanne was in June ,1993 when we landed in Canada. A gentle and kind couple came over to us at the airport. I felt warmth in my heart when we were welcomed by aunt Jeanne and uncle Larry. Since then we stayed in their home for about two months. During our stay, I found Aunt Jeanne kind, caring, selfless, and had a tender heart. She was very detailed , organized, and always performed daily work and chores methodically. She provided the whole family, as well as Nelson and I with a cozy and comfortable atmosphere. Within these 27 years, we travelled together, went out for dinner and dim sum occasionally, and experienced lots of celebrations and gatherings.
Aunt Jeanne left us with lots of happy and precious memories. Her sweetness, kindness and thoughtfulness will stay in our hearts forever.

Jeanne, the sweet lady who made the best banana cake. When we have pot luck dinner, Jeanne would always bring us the famous dessert.
Jeanne was friendly and easy going. She would talked about her grand children with a big bright smile. I can tell how much she loved and appreciated them.
As we say goodbye to Jeanne, let us remember that although we had lost her, yet an Angel is gain in heaven.

Hearing the passing of Jeanne deeply saddened our hearts.
50 years ago, Jeanne bought her first car, not an automatic that most North Americans do, but a standard gear shift drive one. As her cousin, I was asked to teach her how to drive it. What a smart girl, she handled the gear system very smoothly and with good confidence, she was able to drive it nicely within a few days.
Jeanne inherited all the good values from her Iate father, the uncle I have always respected: Honesty, integrity, helpful and always docile to his parents.
Jeanne, we will miss you.
