Thibodeau, Jeanette Marie
Passed away September 3rd, 2019 at Hospice Wellington after a long courageous battle with cancer. Born November 5th, 1953 in Toronto, daughter to Louis & Patricia Thibodeau, sister to Gerry (Tracey), Louise (Phil) and Teresa, and loving Auntie to many nieces and nephews.
Jeanette was a good friend to many and a tremendous care giver for her Aunt Jean in Simcoe.
Jeanette, known as JT to many, had a passion for nature and outdoor activities including kayaking, canoeing, camping, biking and walking the trails. For several years, she participated as one of the volunteer group leaders in many Paddle to a Cure kayak trips. At the cottage, JT was the horseshoe pro and was a real tough one to beat! Once in retirement, JT found a new activity she loved to play called Pickleball where she made many new friends.
She had a big heart and being a positive person was a quality she strived for. JT had a great desire for helping people. She remained optimistic that she would beat her illness to the end.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Gilbert MacIntyre and Son Funeral Home, 1099 Gordon St., Guelph, ON, on Saturday September 7th from 11am to 2pm in the Fellowship Lounge.
