On Monday, December 20, 2021, Jeannine Helene Carriere (Levasseur), loving mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law and friend, passed away peacefully at the age of 76 years.
Jeannine is survived by her daughter, Suzanne (Tim), grandchildren, Erin, Evan, Sam, sister Yvette (Louis), and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her husband Louis, and brothers, Laurent, Henri, and Marcel.
Jeannine was born to parents, Lucienne (Faucher) and Herve Levasseur, in St. Boniface on April 23, 1945. She graduated from St. Joseph's Academy, and shortly thereafter, embarked on a career working for the federal government. One of her adventures led her to work in Montreal for Expo 67. Later, together with husband Louis, they established Carlev Property Management and Sea Breeze Tanning Salon where they forged many relationships and made many friends. Jeannine then settled into a 20-year long career with the Senior and Healthy Aging department with the provincial government, retiring in 2009.
In 1983, the family embarked on an adventurous move to Calgary, Alberta. It was a fun and exciting time for all. They embraced their new surroundings and explored the mountains of Banff, Jasper, and Lake Louise, often hiking the splendid trails.
In her retirement years, Jeannine and husband Louis explored Canada. They adventured to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, Quebec, and Vancouver Island. Some of their highlights included driving the Cabot Trail, seeing the Hopewell Rocks, Anne of Green Gables, the Quebec Citadel, and Butchart Gardens.
Jeannine's grandchildren were her greatest joy and she loved spending time with them. Her love for Erin, Evan and Sam ran very deep and she would give them the world if she could. After school pick-ups were always excitedly met with brown paper bags labelled with their names and their favourite snacks.
Jeannine was a devoted wife. Throughout their 48 years of marriage, she was always by Louis' side - both in sickness and in health. Their devotion to each other was remarkable.
Special thanks to the staff at Riverview Health Care Centre 3E for their compassionate care and support.
In accordance with Jeannine's wishes, there will be a private funeral at St. Emile Church followed by an interment at St. Boniface Cemetery.
In Jeannine's spirit, may you celebrate life with patience and kindness.

  • I was very shocked to read about Jeannine's passing. I first met her on Sept. 1, 1966, my first day with the Provincial Government. There I met Jeannine and immediately a friendship occurred. She was a the very best in her career. I lost touch over the years, and later we met again at Lakeview Square on Carlton. Jeannine was then working for the Seniors. My husband and I came to know both Louis and Jeannine meeting at Sal's, Red Top, Chicken Chef. Our common bond was that their daughter was married to a man of Chinese descent and our daughter was about to marry her partner who is of Chinese descent. We kept meeting and comparing stories and hearing all of her grandchildren, and us sharing our stories of ours Jeannine had a genuine respect for everyone. Her work ethics were perfect. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I knew that after Louis passed it would take a toll on her. Love you Jeannine, you are now at peace and pain free with Louis and the rest of your family. Our families were also close as Jeannine's aunt Alice had also renewed her friendship with my mom, Berthe Beaumont. The Circle of Life is small. Suzanne, Tim, Erin, Evan and Sam, Mom and Grandma will be looking over all of you. I am so sorry for your loss. A co-worker and friend. Irene (Beaumont) Martin and Claude Martin. - Posted by: Irene & Claude (co-worker and friend) on: Dec 31, 2021
