SAUNDERS (née Wilson), Jeanne Marie
March 8, 2024

April 28, 1930 – March 8, 2024

We are saddened to announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was predeceased by her loving husband Carrick. She was much loved by her son John (Ellen) and her late son Michael (Carol). Cherished by her grandchildren Carrie, Tammy, Kelley (Dave), Katrina, Leah (Evan) and Constance and great grandchildren Shay, Jahmar, Micah, Sung, Benjamin, Grace, Isaac, Sade, Donia and Carmella. She was rich in her life as she was in her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by her sister Linda (Jim) and her nieces and nephews.

Jeanne lived a life of giving, of kindness and generosity. She loved the great outdoors and always remembered fondly the years at the ‘camp’ with her husband Carrick, her sons, her brother-in-law Vernon and their dog Smokey.  In the last 30 years, as an independent woman, she loved to drive and travel in Canada. She will be missed by her many friends in the faith, whom she held very dear.

A service to celebrate her well lived life will be held on Monday, March 18, 2024 at 10:30 am at the Voluntas Funeral Home, 4695 Boul. St. Jean Blvd, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, QC H9H 2A7.

    As Jeanne’s friend, the sense of loss I feel must be felt far greater by her beloved family. My deepest sympathy to you all, may the memories of your amazing, loving, kind and compassionate Mom, Grandma and Great Grandma, and her example of living for Christ, swallow up the sorrow and loss you feel now.
