It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Jeannine Prévost at Health Sciences North, Sudbury, Ontario on Saturday, April 23, 2022 at 91 years of age. Jeannine was born on August 10th, 1930 in Dalton, Ontario and as a young girl moved to Noëlville, Ontario where she met her future husband Roger Prévost. They were married in 1947 in Noëlville where their first son was born and then moved to the Sudbury area where five more children were added to the family. For many years they made MacFarlane Lake their home. In 1979, they moved back to Noëlville where Jeannine continued her passion and talent for sewing, gardening and baking. Whether golfing, skiing or fundraising for various causes, Jeannine was known for her active lifestyle and her community involvement. Jeannine and Roger returned to Sudbury in 2013 where they became members of the Red Oak Villa family.

Jeannine will greatly be missed by her six children: Guy (Denise), Paulette (Yves), Pauline (Art), Marc (Claudette), Francine (Ken) and Jacqueline (Tom).
