July 17, 1941 - May 21, 2022

Heaven just got a little brighter with the passing of Jean in her 81st year. Although her time with us as a Mother, Grandma (DeeDee), Great Grandma, Daughter, Sister, Aunt and friend has come to an end, the memories we have will be treasured forever.  

Jean was the first born child of the late Frank and Della Bonenfant (Devon).  Her biggest joy in life was her family who she loved unconditionally.  She is now reunited with her late son, Bobby Bonenfant (Carolyn) and will live on in the hearts of her children - Terry St.John (Jane), Kim Jobidon, Lee-Ann Edgar (Gary) and Norm St. John (Lisa).  Jean was blessed with many grandchildren, they were her pride and joy.  Each one of them held a special place in her heart.  Matthew, Vanna, Tyler (Tiffany), Zachary (Kayla), Blair, Leah, Larissa, Brianna (Jason), Kaitlyn (Rob), Jordan, Justin (Tiffany), Hailey, Brianna and Ashley.  Great grandchildren Aubrey, Emmett and Jackson.

Jean grew up with seven siblings with whom she built lifetime bonds.  She had a very large extended family who are known for celebrating life to the fullest, often hearing the easily distinguishable "Bonenfant laugh".   Jean was the oldest sister of the late Darlene Neveau (late Louis), Pat Berthelot (Bob), Terry Bonenfant (Cathy), Debbie Mageran (Lawrence), late Eddy Bonenfant (Judy), Vince Bonenfant (Val) and the late Glen Bonenfant (Wendy).

Auntie Jean was adored by many nieces and nephews and always up for a party, including dancing (Jean-Jean the dancing machine) guitars and singing!
