Jeannette was born on November 11, 1939 in Listowel, Ontario where she lived until she joined the Canadian Air Force as a secretary at eighteen years of age and moved to Cold Lake, Alberta. She served in the Air Force in Cold Lake and Trenton, Ontario, during which time she met her husband Al. After Al’s father’s passing, they moved to Vauxhall to look after the family farm and raise their children. Jeannette greatly enjoyed gardening, from which she made her infamous raspberry jam that her family always asked for. She was a talented baker to which all of her children can attest, and she greatly enjoyed knitting, crocheting and doing puzzles. Jeannette enjoyed family times spent with her children and grandchildren and was very proud of their achievements. She was extremely dedicated to farm life, always helping out during planting and harvesting and living her life with her husband Louie on the farm.
