So very sorry to hear of your loss, my condolences to your family. I think I first met her when she worked in Arnold Peters campaign office when I was not even old enough to vote yet. I used to work with my Mom, she worked for Arnold's Campaign office for a few years. We have been missing her at the Bingo, wondering how she was managing. R.I.P. my freind.

Famille de Jeannine Rivard

J'ai des beaux souvenirs de "Mme Rivard". Sa famille et la notre ont demeurer sur la meme rue. Comme enfant, j'allait faire un tour chez mes voisins, les Rivards. Mme Rivard etait toujours occuper mais toujours recevante quand meme. Une fois, j'ai eut un accident chez elle et j'ai casser mon bras. Je me souviens encore quand elle m'a aider a me rendre chez moi. Je l'ai toujours beaucoup aimer. Mes sympathies a toute la famille.
RIP "Mme Rivard".
