December 30, 1922 – November 11, 2021

Jeannette Ducharme's children sadly announce their Mother's passing the morning of November 11, 2021. Mom was the last surviving matriarch in the Ducharme / Blanchette family.
Born in Bateman, Saskatchewan, Mom survived her parents, (Athanase and Wilda), 6-month old sister Wilhelmine; brothers and their wives, Octave (Elizabeth); Emile (Marie); Aurele (Marie Paule); Eddie (Rita); Lou (Lucille); and grandchild, Michael.
Mom was infinitely loved by her children, Bob, Lynne, Anita (Cindy), Paulette; and grandchildren, Danny (fiancée Dana); and great-grandchildren, Chase and Mason, the newest member to the family, Bryce (Dana), and many nieces and nephews.
She was a successful and popular hair salon owner - Jeannette's Beauty Salon in St. Boniface. Her customers loved her to this day. Some of her hairdressers remembered Mom every Christmas, even after 30 plus years of not working together.
She stayed close to home and loved golfing, 10-pin bowling, visits to Club Regent with Stephanie, Suzanne and Norma, and dancing at Club LaVerendrye.
In the last few years, Mom resided in Supportive Housing at Despins Residence. She surrounded herself with pictures of her brothers (who were perfect in her eyes) and her sisters-in-law, children, grandchildren, and her four best friends, Yvonne Lagacé, Therese Beaudry, Florence Crow, and Denise Doiron. She loved living at Despins; felt so secure and well taken care of in terms of meals, health, and activities of daily life. Our deep felt thanks go to the staff and tenant companions who took such good care of Mom. We are forever grateful.
Special thanks to Dr. Kevin Coates and his staff for the excellent care they provided to Mom.
Mom will be laid to rest at Green Acres, next to her parents. A private family service will be held at 2:00 p.m., on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 at Green Acres Funeral Home, Hwy. #1 East at Navin Road.
The service may be joined virtually by accessing the website, search for Jeannette's obituary under "RECENT OBITUARIES," click on her name and then scroll down to the "SERVICES" section under the obituary, then click on the "JOIN LIVESTREAM" link.
If you want to honour Mom, she never cared for flowers, a donation to Despins Charities in her name will be cherished by all of us.

We will miss you Mom,
but we are happy you didn't suffer.
Rest in peace.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • Deepest sympathies to Lynne, Bob, Anita and Paulette and families. I grew up in St Boniface, on the other side of the Seine, and have known these Ducharme's for 50+ years. I admired your Mom. She spoke the truth and she did not mince words. She also loved life and had the most beautiful smile. I know you will miss her deeply and will cherish the memories she left with each of you. Thinking of you all and praying for peace to cover you, as you say goodbye to your Mom. Love Judy - Posted by: Judy Manness (Friend) on: Nov 16, 2021

  • Anita, Cindy and Lynn, my deepest condolences on the loss of your Mother. I didn't know her but she must have been a wonderful person to have raised the incredible, thoughtful energetic and confident daughters that I do know. Judy Grant, Kildonan Golf - Posted by: Judith Grant (friend) on: Nov 16, 2021

  • Anita, Cindy, Lynne, Paulette, Bob. Sincere condolences on your recent loss. Know that I am thinking of you & will be with you on Wednesday although far away. Although I never met her, knowing her children provided a sensation of what a remarkable woman she was. A life well lived. Erynne - Posted by: Erynne Glacken (Sister-in-law to Anita) on: Nov 15, 2021

  • As a young girl, I was best friends with Paulette, Mrs. Ducharme's daughter. We went to Tache School together, and I remember her mom running her hair salon across the street from the school. I remember her mom being so friendly, as was Paulette and Anita. Please accept our sincere condolences in the loss of your mother. Louise (nee Dorge) and Garry Watson. - Posted by: Louise Watson (Friend to Mrs. Ducharme's daughter Paulette) on: Nov 14, 2021

  • I will miss your great sense of humor and I will not forget you. Bless you I love you Lorraine - Posted by: Lorraine (Care worker) on: Nov 13, 2021

  • Saying farewell to Mrs D. Is like saying farewell to a second Mom. Denise Doiron, my Mom were friends for as long as we can remember. So Jeannette, when you greet my Mom tell her how we remember her with pride as we will remember you. Thanks for the love and kindness to my family. Rest in peace. - Posted by: Laurette Doiron (Friend) on: Nov 13, 2021
