Jeanne Favre
February 2nd, 1955 - Saturday, September 12th, 2020

Jeanne Carmen Marie Favre, our mama, sister, aunt, and dear friend, passed away peacefully on September 12, 2020. She lived life to the fullest for 65 years.

She is survived by her children: Renée (John), Thomas (Tim), and Connor (Ruby); twin: Johanne; sisters: Linda and Susie; nieces: Susie, Erin, and Robyn; nephew: Jamie; extended family, and countless friends. She will undoubtedly receive an enthusiastic welcome from her beloved parents, in-laws, relatives, and chosen family who patiently waited for her arrival.

Jeanne was born in Longueuil, spending her formative years in Quebec before moving to Toronto in the mid-1980s. She found love and built a family in Ontario, exuding the French “joie de vivre” in everything she did. She will be remembered as a fabulous chef, skilled tennis player, aggressive chanteuse, and spirited dancer. Music made her come alive and her unparalleled spirit was contagious.

Jeanne had a gift for making others feel valued, loved, and encouraged. She showed us how to be strong but vulnerable, kind but firm, and never take anything too seriously. Among her greatest accomplishments was helping her children achieve their dreams, supporting them in becoming a pilot, a lawyer, and an Olympian.

Jeanne taught us that every song deserved a dance, every lyric was worth belting out, and every moment needed to be appreciated. She loved life and imparted this last piece of wisdom: Surround yourself with good people, know when to walk away, and don’t subject yourself to any experimental medical treatments! Always making us laugh, our dearest Jeanne, we will remember you fondly, miss you terribly, and love you always.

We would like to express immense gratitude to Dr. Cenabre, Dr. Gimon, Dr. Ezeife, Dr. Evans, and Dr. Shergill, the incredible staff on Unit 47 of Foothills Hospital, and everyone at the Dulcina Hospice. Additionally, special thanks to Bill, Jonathan, Giovanni, and Garth for providing her with spiritual guidance throughout her journey. You all contributed to the dignity, love, and peace that she deserved in her final days. We will be forever grateful.

The family plans to hold a private Celebration of Life at a later date. If you would like to honour Jeanne in the meantime, please pour yourself a glass of wine, blow her a kiss, and toast to life. As she would say: “Every moment is precious, and there is no guarantee of tomorrow”.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to either the Dundas Seahaws Special Olympic Swim Team or to Dulcina Hospice. Click on the links below to be redirected to their websites.

Please accept our deepest condolences to all the family. Jean and Joanne were part of our lives when the girls were in their late teens. Beautiful, young, vivacious girls full of life and optimism. Years passed and unfortunately we lost contact, however we always heard news of their busy lives through our brother, Frederick Belair. We finally reconnected with Jean just before she went into the hospital. It was a giggly conversation of fond memories and lots of “do u remember when”. She also spoke of her three wonderful children and how very proud she was of them. Hence it was very sad to hear of her passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jeans children, Johanne her twin and the rest of the family. A bright star has dimmed in this world.

Linda (Belair) & Marc Riccio, Montreal.

I am stunned and deeply, deeply sadden to learn today of Jeanne’s passing.

She was a loving wife & mother, supportive sibling and Auntie - and positively one of the best examples why French girls really know how to live life! I pray for us all to find the strength to overcome the currently inconsolable grief we must now endure, and truly hope that her family & friends will soon find comfort in the wonderful memories and love she left within all our hearts. For me, I will always remember Jeanne’s explosive laugh, the fire in her eyes, a smile that lit up a room, the energy of her spirit and the generosity of her heart to include me as one of her many long-time friends. My prayers to the family and all of us left in her shadow while I try to personally console my own grief upon the peaceful passing of my true blue friend and sister-in-law Jeanne.

With a very heavy heart, Alex

I am sad to hear of this news. I met the twins when they were about 7yrs old and had moved to Ville St.Laurent. The 1st day , they played tricks on everyone by pretending to be magicians and taking turns coming out of their apt. As we all grew up together, there were some fun times and we stayed in touch when they moved to Toronto.
Their Mom had stayed in Montreal and we stayed in touch for a very long time as well.
The last time I saw Jean was when she was in Montreal about a few years ago and her and Johanne joined me and my friends at my regular haunt for Happy Hour.
May she rest in Peace and be the Angel who will watch over her twin sister Johanne.
