Jeanne was born in St. Stephen, N.B. to Maude (Brown) and Flavis Allen.
Shortly before her passing, Jeanne took time to write the following: “my greatest accomplishment is raising three great kids-all of whom I am equally proud. I thank them for being so attentive at this time and love them with all my heart. Thanks also to a special friend, Shirley Downey. We go back to ages 2 and 3. She has been there since then and I love her dearly-a true pal!”
Jeanne is survived by her children, Jeff (Judy Flecknell) of Tatamagouche, N.S.; Jane (Joanna Belajac) of Toronto, ON and Jennifer (Dave Clark) of Fredericton, N.B.; her grandsons, Drew (Ottawa), Garth (Halifax) and Brett (Halifax); her brother, David (Margaret) Allen of Sarnia, ON; her brother-in-law, David (Madelyn) Williams of Saint John, N.B. and her nephews, Bruce, Bob, Christopher and Paul.
She was pre-deceased by her husband of 51 years, John Douglas in 2007.

Remember me as you pass by,
Where you are now so once was I.
Where I am now so you will be,
Prepare in time to follow me.
