Louis JEANNEAU

Louis Jeanneau, aged 92, peacefully passed away in his home at Columbian Manor in Saskatoon on September 29, 2023. He is survived by his loving daughters, Colette (Adrien) Thibault, Lisette (Denis) Detillieux, and his son, Léo (Joyce) Jeanneau. Louis will always be remembered with love by his 11 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his 3 sisters: Sr Marie Jeanneau, Annette Nieman, and Bernadette Steckler, as well as his 4 brothers: Bob (Irene), Paul (Gloria), Fr. Maurice, and George (Heather). Louis will be deeply missed by his sister-in-law Alma Jeanneau, as well as by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Louis was preceded in death by his beloved wife Thérèse Jeanneau (née Masson) in 2017, his brother Joe, his sisters Madéline Marchildon and infant Annette Jeanneau, his sister-in-law Pauline Leclerc, and his brothers-in-law Clément Marchildon, Pat Neiman, and Pius Steckler. He was also preceded in death by Thérèse’s parents, Gédéon and Églantine Masson, as well as her siblings Doril (Clarence) Baril, Hermine (Fernand) Neault, Laurette (François) Norman, and Florence (Alfred/Edwin) Altrogge, along with infant siblings Annette, Muriel, and Marie.

Born and raised on the family farm near Peterson, SK, Louis was the second child of 11. Family was paramount to him, and he was known for his compassionate and caring nature. Louis possessed exceptional physical and spiritual strength, and he dedicated his life to farming. However, he was not only a farmer, but also a skilled carpenter, mechanic, and all-around handyman. The farm was his sanctuary, and he had a remarkable ability to mend the unfixable and invent solutions and tools.

In 1949, the Jeanneau family moved from Peterson to Prud’homme, where they continued to operate the farm until the mid-80s. It was in Peterson that Louis met the love of his life, Terry, and their relationship prompted Louis to make significant changes in his life. After marrying Terry in 1957, they purchased the Masson family farm in Prud’homme and cultivated it until the mid-90s. They became inspiring role models to their children Colette, Lisette, and Léo, leaving a lasting impact on their lives. They also deeply cherished their grandchildren and actively participated in their community and church. The couple’s partnership demonstrated the power of their complementary skills, leading to remarkable accomplishments that exceeded what they could have achieved individually.

A Mass of Christian Burial in honor of Louis will be held at the Sts. Donatien and Rogatien Parish in Prud’homme, SK, on Wednesday, October 4th, at 11:00 am, with Rev. Fr. Daniel Louh as the celebrant. Following the mass, interment will take place at the Sts. Donatien and Rogatien Parish cemetery. In memory of Louis, donations can be made to the Sts. Donatien and Rogatien Cemetery. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Marc Blondeau of Kushneryk Funeral Service in Wakaw, SK.
