Jocelyne graduated from LJR High School in Shediac and worked in Moncton and Ottawa as a secretary for several years in federal government departments including Parliament Hill. Her career was interrupted early due to the burden of schizophrenia. She was intelligent, friendly and generous and pursued lifelong interests in reading and spirituality. She lived with courage, grace and faith despite many years in difficulties and unfulfilled dreams.

Donations to the Maison de Nazareth or the Canadian Mental Health Association would be appreciated.
