Obituary for Jeannette Rita Bernstrom

Jeannette Rita  Bernstrom
Jeannette was born Sunday, August 22, 1926 in The Pas Manitoba to Nazaire and Augustine Frechette. She was the third youngest of 9 siblings. Being part of a dairy family, there was always work to do. It was her job to take meals out to the farm hands. She preferred the outdoor jobs rather than domestic chores. Growing up in the Frechette family there was always laughter, singing around the piano and games of cribbage, allies or cards.
Jeannette married Vern Bernstrom April 24, 1946 and together proudly raised their six children, Ron, Bryan, David, JoAnne, Kevin and Paul. They were married for 58 years. They enjoyed attending dances with their many friends. Mom loved dancing. It was always heartwarming to see Vern and Jeannette waltz. Mom loved her music too. She loved to listen to her many cd’s and records.
She was always an active lady enjoying many sports including golf, curling and bowling. Or if you preferred a rousing game of bocce, lawn darts or croquet she would always be up to the challenge. She was quite accomplished at many of these. She was very proud of getting a Hole-In-One at the Gilbert Plains Golf Club during a tournament. She also enjoyed her many walks at the lake, often with one of Kevin and Sheryl’s shelties. She was often one of the first ones to swim in the lake every summer. Over the years Jeannette was also a member of the Catholic Women’s League and Hospital Auxiliary.
She was always up to a game of cards, be it cribbage, bridge, canasta or spite and malice. Her “Card Ladies” played bridge and canasta weekly faithfully either in town and at the lake.
She was very proud of her children, seven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. Affectionately known as Grandma, Grandma B, Mom B or Mrs. B and especially Mom.
Jeannette was predeceased by her parents, siblings, many in-laws, husband Vern, sons Ron and Bryan, son-in-law Bob Lawson and many friends. She leaves to cherish her memory son David, daughter JoAnne Dawe (Bob), son Kevin (Sheryl), son Paul (Elissa), daughters-in-law, Marlene and Patricia, grandchildren Janet (Joe), Wendy (Mike), Kristoffer, Danielle (Jeff), Ryan, Janelle and Lindsay and great-grandchildren Zachary, Kellen, Jordan, Taylor, Piper, Rommie, Seth and Morgan. She also leaves her many nieces, nephews and friends.
We love you lots and will miss you. Rest in peace, your work is done.
