October 18, 1919 – April 28, 2012
On April 28, 2012, Jeanne passed away peacefully in Calgary, AB. Born to Octave and Rose Henuset, Jeanne and her four siblings were hard-working children who grew up on the family farm and attended Belleview’s one-room schoolhouse. Jeanne was proud of her heritage and often spoke lovingly about the Prairies and life on the farm. Jeanne, with her husband Jim, spent many weekends and summer months at their farm in Langdon AB, working the land and enjoying the quiet of the country. An avid reader and lifelong learner, Jeanne had a keen mind and a wonderful heart. Some of her happiest times were spent with her brothers and their families, which included her legendary Christmas dinners. Jeanne was a trusted advisor, confidant and friend to many friends and family during her long life.
Jeanne was predeceased by her husband, Jim Fraser; brothers, Henry and Arthur Henuset of Calgary and Albert Hennessey of Victoria, BC. She is survived by her brother Roland Henuset (Vivian) of Pipestone Manitoba, sisters-in-law Ruth Henuset of Calgary and Dora Hennessey of Victoria and many grateful nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
A service honouring Jeanne will be held at Scarboro United Church (134 Scarboro Avenue S.W., Calgary, AB) on Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. with a reception to follow. Jeanne will also be honoured at an afternoon tea at the Pipestone Community Hall in Manitoba on Thursday, May 10th at 2:00 p.m.
