Jeannette Portelance (née Bonin) passed away on Oct 2, 2019 at the Elizabeth Centre, aged 98. Predeceased by our father Léon, our brother Jean-Louis (Bernadette) and our sister Rachelle, she leaves behind Claudette, Yvonne (Gilles), Maurice (late Suzanne), Madeleine (Henry), Nicole (Manuel), Léon Jr (Joanne) and Julie (Roland), her loving grand-children and great grandchildren. A perfectionist who never cut corners, she was a woman with a sharp mind who often surprised us with spot-on remarks. Her uncanny ability to grow with her children was remarkable. Our mother, grand-mother, great-grand-mother faced life’s hurdles with courage and dignity up to the very end. She will be greatly missed. The family wishes to thank the caregivers at the Elizabeth Centre. Funeral services will be held privately.
