Born in Coderre, Saskatchewan, her family moved to Weyburn Saskatchewan where Jeanne grew up. Jeanne moved to Nelson in 1960 with her husband Tom where she worked as the secretary for the Nelson Police Department from 1962 to 1972. She loved Nelson for the beauty of the landscape and the great fishing. Jeanne moved to Fruitvale in 1988 where she played bridge and crocheted quilts for her family.

She passed away peacefully at Rosewood Village.

The family would like to thank the Rosewood staff for their thoughtful and wonderful care as well as the Hospice Society and Alternatives Funeral Services.
