Jeanne was blessed to have a very close extended family of nieces and nephews including Patricia Ross, Kathleen and Mike Thorpe, Kathy and Steven Forrest and their families.
In addition to her parents, Jeanne was predeceased by her husband Lloyd and her sisters Ailsie Forrest and Eleanor Swarbrick.
