Obituary of Jeannette Marie Doiron

Peacefully, on Saturday, May 30th, Jeannette Marie Doiron passed away after a long and courageous battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. Jeannette was a faith-filled, kind, generous and caring woman, always putting the needs of her family at the forefront. Born in Shediac-Cape, New Brunswick on March 16, 1943, predeceased by her parents Elzear and Corinne Gallant. Beloved wife of the late Peter Doiron (2019) for 54 years. Devoted mother of Liane Allen (Steve), Peter Doiron (Sheryl), Judith Gallo (Matteo) and Joanne Couto (Tony). Dear Memere of Hailey, Katie, Stephanie, Nicole, Christina and David and grand-memere of Brody. Survived by her siblings Aline Babineau (Henri), Irene Scholten, Lea Scholten (Tony), Leonard Gallant (Jeannitta), Elzear Gallant (Ruth) and Pierre Gallant (Marilyn).

Predeceased by Alex Scholten (brother in-law), Cheryl Doiron (sister in-law) and Pat Doiron (brother in-law). Jeannette was a truly remarkable woman who will be remembered for her love of sports, culture, the arts, music, travel and fine cooking. Her selflessness as a mother and wife were unsurpassed, devoting all of her time and energy to her children’s countless activities over the years. One of her greatest joys was gathering her family around the dinner table on Sundays with fun and laughter. Jeannette excelled as a student at all levels; by the age of nineteen, she had completed her professional training and was admitted to the Canadian Society of Laboratory Technologists in 1962. Jeannette would spend the ensuing years immersed in her work through her commitment as a lifelong learner in field of laboratory technology. The Doiron family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the entire staff of the McCormick Home for their compassion and care throughout her journey. Cremation has taken place.
