Jeannette attended the Catholic Convent in Frelisburg, Quebec, and Enosburgh Elementary School.

She enjoyed working on the farm alongside her husband and children. Jeannette loved boiling maple syrup in their small sugarhouse on the farm, while sharing stories of her dad and her childhood. She loved the outdoors and could be found tending to her beautiful flower and vegetable gardens in the summer. Jeannette always preserved her hard-earned harvest, canning and pickling a large variety of goods. She also loved to pick apples and wild berries, swim; especially in the ocean in Florida, play cards with family and friends, and always loved watching Sue’s softball games alongside her husband. She and Paul ran the farm from 1963 until they sold it in 1988, they then moved to Richford, Jeannette worked at Northland and at Blouin’s IGA. Jeannette will be remembered as a strong-willed lady who loved her family immensely and was loved by many.
