They later moved to Cortland until the passing of Bob in 2012. Jeanette then made her final move to Ottawa, where she settled for many years, until her passing on March 15, 2024.

She is proceeded in death by her husband, both of her parents, her brother Will, her grandparents and her nephew Kelvin. She is survived by her brother Urnie and sister Suzanne, many nieces and nephews, and great nieces and great nephew.

She loved to sew and quilt so much and gifted many of her friends and family with many of her creations. She was also an award-winning baker. Once again, she would share all the goodies she baked with love, with those that she loved.
