It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jeanette (Arsenault) Davis, 90, at Maison Albert House in Moncton, NB with family by her side on July 29, 2023.
Born in Charlottetown, PE, she was the daughter of the late Anthony and Rosella (Gallant) Arsenault.
Mom has told many heartwarming stories of her upbringing in Rimouski, QC and Bathurst, NB. Favourite memories include summers at the family cottage at Youghall Beach, with cherished family and later on, as a young woman ‘with the Girls’ at the beach.
It was in Bathurst where she met the love of her life and husband of 61 years, Frederick Davis. Mom and Dads wonderful life together included summers at their cottage at Cape Brule, on Shediac Bay. Following Dads retirement in 1991, winters included time in Florida and some international travel with friends. Jeanette was also involved with the IODE and Meals on Wheels for a number of years.
Jeanette would first and foremost be remembered as a devoted and loving wife and mother. In addition to her family, she was passionate about the world around her. She was intrigued by current affairs, politics and the environment… Just ask any newspaper Editor, Member of Parliament or Prime Minister. All would have received letters from her voicing strong opinions or concerns. (smile😊)
Mom was a lover of reading and the Arts. Her love of classical and opera music would have her singing along with her favourite, Pavarotti, as many could attest to.
Jeanette will be lovingly remembered by her son Peter (Anne) of Moncton and Lisa (Kevin) of Bedford. Along with her parents, she was predeceased by an infant son, Anthony Michael, her husband Fred and sisters Valerie and Marie. She is survived by brothers Frederic (Bathurst) and Michel ‘Mike’ (Montreal) as well as several nieces and nephews and extended family members.
The family is grateful to the entire staff at the Dr Sheldon Rubin Oncology Clinic at the Moncton Hospital for their care. In addition, we would like to thank the kind staff from Faubourg du Mascaret and most recently, Maison Albert House Hospice. We also wish to extend loving appreciation to caregivers Tara, Donna and Heather for your wonderful support.
Above all, we wish to extend a sincere Thank You to Dr John Li who has gone above and beyond in exemplifying wonderful care to Mom. Your gentle professionalism, kindness and compassion were so appreciated, as were your many home visits and prayers with Mom. She always commented on what a special man you are.
Respecting Moms wishes, a funeral mass will be held on Thursday, August 10th at 1pm at Saint Bernards Catholic Church. (43 Botsford St, Moncton)
A visitation will be held August 9th from 6-8pm at Passage Funeral Home. (363 Amirault St., Dieppe)
A private interment will take place at Fair Haven Cemetery.
In memory of Jeanette, donations to Friends of the Moncton Hospital (Oncology Dept), Maison Albert House or charity of choice would be appreciated by the family.
We find peace and comfort in knowing Mom and Dad are reunited and will watch over us, Somewhere Over the Rainbow. We love you always.
