Sister Jeannette made religious profession in the Congregation of Notre Dame in 1952 and celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in May 2012. Her love of music was shared with students in Quebec and, for many years, at St. Brigid Catholic School in Toronto.

With great care and concern, she dedicated many years in pastoral ministry in several parishes especially Holy Cross and St. Boniface and in the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Boniface Parish, Toronto. Even with serious health problems, she faithfully continued to tutor new-Canadian clergy in English as a second language.
