In loving memory of Jeanne Hélène Giroux (née Deschamps) aged 72, who passed away peacefully on Wednesday December 28th 2022, at Extendicare Starwood in Ottawa surrounded by her devoted family after a courageous battle with Alzheimer's.

Jeanne was very involved with Paroisse Ste-Therese de l'enfant Jésus on various committees and was Hawkeye, a Beaver leader with First Hanmer Scout troop and earned her wood beads while living in Val Thérèse. In 1989, she and Claude moved to Embrun. She was manager of customer services at the Metro there. She went to Ottawa University and followed correspondence courses with Nipissing University to enhance her teacher's certificate to return to her calling by teaching Core French for 20 years, retiring in 2010. She was an avid knitter and quilter and many family members are recipients of her creations.
