Sadly, we announce the peaceful passing of Jeannette Broccolini (formerly known as Giannetta Di Gennaro) on September 22, 2023, at the age of 92. Born on April 19, 1931, in Montreal to Berardo Di Gennaro and Apollonia Baldassare, Jeannette married her beloved late husband, Donato Broccolini, in 1953. She was a dedicated mother to Joseph (Carmela), the late Peter (Mary), John (Anna), and Paul (Stephanie). Jeannette was a cherished Nonna to 11 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. She was also the last surviving sibling among her 7 brothers and 5 sisters. Her passing leaves a void in the lives of her many nieces and nephews.

Throughout her life, Jeannette found joy and fulfillment in spending time with her grandchildren, particularly during their trips to Lake Capri and winter vacations in Florida. As the matriarch of the family, her home was always filled with the aroma of traditional Sunday lunches, which she lovingly prepared. Jeannette was a loving wife, mother, and Nonna, and her absence will be deeply felt by all who knew her. Her memory will forever be cherished.

Visitation to pay respects to Jeannette will be held on October 10, 2023, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Centre Funéraire Côte des Neiges, located at 4525 ch. Côte-des-neiges, Montreal, QC. A funeral service in celebration of her life will take place at Mary Queen of the World, 1085 de la Cathédrale, Montreal, QC, on October 11, 2023, at 10:30 a.m.

In memory of Jeannette, the family kindly requests that donations be made to a charity of your choice or to the Santa Cabrini Hospital Foundation, in place of sending flowers.
