Surrounded by her loving family, Jeannine passed away peacefully at the age of 78 on January 16, 2022.
She was the cherished wife of 59 years to Claude, and loving mother to her daughter, Jacqueline Morrish (Dan), and her son, Gaetan Legault (Marie-Josee Lafleur). She was also the proud grandmother to Danielle (Cassidy), Aleksa (Tristan), Renee-Claude, Katrine, Julien, and Melissa. They were the light of her life.
She leaves behind family; Raymond Vincent (Valerie), Rolande Denomme, Leonard Vincent (Jeannine), Henri Vincent, Aurele Lambert, Roger Vincent (Lynda), Gisele Coles (Doug), Gaetane Vincent (Pierre), Ginette Ouellette (Alain), Claudette Raymond (Louis), Paulette Mireault, Albert Legault (Susan) and Rejean Venne and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents Leonie and Lucien Vincent, and by her sister Suzanne Lambert, her brothers-in-law Arsene Denomme, Jean-Guy Legault, Jean-Marc Legault, Jean-Marc Mireault, Clifford Raymond, and sister-in-law Marie Venne.
She was happiest spending time surrounded by her family and friends, and shared a special closeness with her siblings; her partners in crime, in travel, and in adventure. She enjoyed her summers at the cottage, on her deck with a glass of wine befriending the local wildlife. Her home and cottage were often a base for many family get togethers. She was a fierce canasta player without mercy (“there are no friends at cards”) and held the secret to the world’s greatest pierogi recipe. She was known to be persistent at times and this was one of the qualities that made her the strong woman we loved and admired. Her presence will be missed deeply by all that knew her.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to LESSARD-STEPHENS Funeral Home. Respecting her wishes, cremation has taken place. The late Mrs. Jeannine Legault’s family would like to invite family and friends to join them for a celebration of life on Saturday, May 21, 2022, from 12:00 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Lessard-Stephens Reception Hall. .
