FRASER, Jeanne Anne (nee Henuset)

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.

    I knew “Aunty Jeanne” (as I fondly called her) from her life in Victoria, BC. I am a close friend of her niece, Katherine Phoenix. When Katie first introduced me to Jeanne I just loved her immediately. Her bright mind, her feisty spirit but also her gentleness and kind heart were something I was drawn to immediately. Katie and I spent many an afternoon having tea in the kitchen of her lovely home in Uplands, musing on life, her garden, the stock market (of course!), business, politics and family. I never did much talking in those times, which was fine with me because she was always so interesting to listen to and I couldn’t wait for the times when she’d break out into that infectious laugh! Katie seemed to have a knack for being able to bring that out in her. I remember Aunty Jeanne’s eyes would light up whenever Katie would start talking in French. I feel very privileged to have been able to witness first hand the very special and obvious deep felt love, admiration, fondness and mutual respect Kate and Aunty Jeanne had for each other.

    My heartfelt condolences to the family of Jeanne.

    How lucky you all were to have had her in your lives.

    Sincerely,
    Lisa Cepeliauskas
