<div itemprop="description">JACKSON, Rejane &ldquo;Jeannie&rdquo; (nee Regimbal)<br /><br />July 30, 1919 - January 4, 2015<br /><br />(Proud WWII RCAF veteran)<br /><br />Passed away peacefully at her home in Burlington, ON. Born in 1919 in Sudbury, ON and raised in Haileybury ON, Jeannie enjoyed a full life always surrounded by family and friends. <br /><br />In her younger years, Jeannie was an avid athlete; she played for one of the first Women&rsquo;s Hockey Leagues in Canada - making it to a National Championship in 1933. <br /><br />During the Second World War, Jeannie proudly served with the RCAF as a Morse Code Instructor. Shortly after the war, Jeannie and her husband Tommy (deceased in 1969) moved to Arizona - where she spent many years. Jeannie moved back to Canada in 2001 to be closer to her family in Burlington, ON.<br /><br />Jeannie possessed a natural ability to create beauty wherever she went - and this ability shone through in her passion for gardening - earning her a Trillium Award for the stunning gardens she created at her property in Lawson Park. <br /><br />She is survived by her nephews Marc Police and Raymond Police, her nieces Rachelle Fraser and Lizanne Rowe as well as several grand nieces and nephews - all of whom brought her great joy, especially in her later years. Jeannie is also survived by her sister Delores &ldquo;Delo&rdquo; Morisset of Rouyn-Noranda, PQ, as well as 2 grand daughters, Michelle and Nicole. She will be dearly missed by all family and friends.<br /><br />Memorial gifts may be made to Veterans Affairs<br /><br /></div>
