BRULE, Jeannine Dolosa
(nee Cote) May 29, 1924 – March 17, 2013. With deep sadness Jeannine gave her last breath on Sunday, March 17. She is asleep in death awaiting the promised resurrection she believed in from the Bible. She was predeceased by her daughter (1946) and her loving husband, John (2004). She leaves her sons: Roger, Maurice (Barbara), grandchildren: Michel (Kimberly),
Marielle (Roy), Marc (Xenia) and Monique (David), great – grandsons: Dayton, Levi and Lincoln and many nieces and nephews who will miss her.
Jeannine Cote born in Quebec learned how to be frugal and this attribute could be seen in her lifestyle. She knew the value of a dollar. In 1944 she married John, had a daughter in 1945, who died 6 months later in 1946. Roger was born in 1946 and at six months old he got very sick from an inoculation which left him challenged and as such Jeannine had to look after his life long needs. In 1947 she had another son Maurice. Life revolved around Roger and she planned her activities on this premise. In 1951 John, Jeannine, Roger and Maurice packed up and moved west settling in Hope. In 1961 they moved to Silver Creek and resided there until 2008 when she got sick, was taken to hospital and then was transferred to the Fraser Hope Lodge. Towards the end, the Parkinson’s disease caused complications that shortened her life. The people who encountered her found her engaging with her bright personality. Her heartfelt laugh was contagious and engaging. Her involvement with her religion could be seen with her going to people’s homes to talk about her conviction and hope for the Bible’s promised new world. Jeannine will be greatly missed.
Services will be held March 30, 2013 at 2:00 pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
