1919 - 2017

Jeanette passed away Monday, October 2, 2017, at the age of 98 years. The only child of Margaret Jane ("Mattie") and Wm. Thomas Veale, Jeanette spent most of her childhood in Calgary. She attended Calgary Normal School and began a teaching career that spanned about 40 years. In the summer months, she often travelled or, sometimes, made a career shift such as working in a cannery in Bella Coola (1943). She was an avid hiker and skier, recalling many good times with friends in the mountains and cycling the city bike paths. The legacy of her warmth, spirit, and positive influence on those lives she touched, will be carried on through those who knew her. Past students and colleagues will remember her guidance, passion, and dedication.
