Jeanne Tardif passed peacefully Saturday October 17, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Quebec, Canada, March 8, 1930, the daughter of the late Jean and Marie (Fortin) Tardif. In Canada, Jeanne met and married her loving husband Eugene. They moved their young family to Massachusetts in 1963 and lived the last 28 years in Wilbraham with Hughie and Carole. Jeanne’s family meant the world to her. And she to them. She will be remembered as always being there, always loving and supportive. She found joy in everything she did, especially while in the kitchen cooking for, and serving, her family and friends.
Jeanne will also be remembered for her unyielding faith. She reflected Jesus in her beautiful eyes and her actions.
She was a humble servant of St. Cecilia’s Church and a member of the Altar Society and the Senior Connection. Jeanne’s loving smile and energy will be missed by this community and all who were blessed to know her.
Her beloved husband of 60 years, Eugene Tardif passed away in 2012. She leaves her loving children, France Lefebvre and her husband Donald of Lenox, Hughes “TD” Tardif and his wife Carole of Wilbraham, and Berengere “Berry” Tardif-Ablicki and her husband Richard of South Hadley. She is survived by her 2 sisters, Rita Giard and Laurette Audet both of Canada, her 5 loving grandchildren Michel, Jeanne-Yvette, Stephanie, Mandie and Austin, and nine great-grandchilden.
