SAINT-LOUIS-DE-KENT, NB – Jeannette Daigle, 86, of Aldouane passed away peacefully at the Villa Maria, St-Louis-de-Kent on Monday, December 21st 2020. Born in Pont-du-Milieu, NB, she was the daughter of the late Ben and Sadie (Babineau) Johnson. Jeannette was an accomplished and gifted seamstress, her needlepoint work and quilts were exquisite. She would make our clothing. She loved nature and was very proud of her gardens. She loved to go fishing and to hunt partridge. She faced her fear of water and learned to swim. She loved to sing in the choir and she sang herself "Happy birthday" one last time in September. We inherited her extraordinary laugh which was always hearty. Her strength of character, her sense of humour, her big heart and intelligence will be missed enormously.
Jeannette leaves to mourn her two daughters, JoAnne Daigle (Anthony Efejuku) of Prescott, Ontario, Gloria Robichaud (Georges) of Saint-Louis-de-Kent; as well as her granddaughter, Chantal Robichaud (Alain).
Jeannette will also be sadly missed by her sister, Dianna Thibodeau (late Joe) of Richibucto.
Besides her parents, Jeannette was predeceased by her husband, Clarence Daigle; daughter, Dianne Daigle; grandson, Philippe Robichaud; and by her nine brothers, Eric (Elva), Ronald (Marjorie), Elmo (Noëlla), Omer, Roméo (May), Adélard (Laurida), Albert, Roger (Victoria) and Edgar.
