<div itemprop="description">CARSWELL, Jeanne Elizabeth (nee Snider) <br>February 13, 1932 – September 18, 2018 <br>It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jeanne Elizabeth Carswell in Ottawa. Daughter of late Earl Llewelyn Snider and the late Keitha Irene Snider of Carrying Place and Consecon. Survived by Harold (Hi) Carswell, her loving husband, friend and companion for over 67 years. Loving and very proud mother of Cheryl Potvin (Mark), Cindy Carswell (Brian Goudy) and Holly Carswell (David Power). Proud grandmother of Lauren Potvin (Paul Tanguay), Michael Potvin, Maya Power and great grandmother of Eloise (Ellie) Tanguay. Predeceased by sister, Helen Irene Smith (Allan) of Belleville. <br> <br>Jeanne was raised on Smoke’s Point, near Carrying Place. She is a graduate of the public school at Smoke’s Point, Trenton High School and Peterborough Normal School (Teachers’ College). She was an excellent teacher was selected to stay on and teach at the Peterborough Normal School. She was a gifted pianist with a Grade 12 ATCM certificate. She was the Trenton High School pianist for five years and played on several occasions on CJBQ radio. All military wives are special and Jeanne was one of the best. She married Flying Officer Carswell of the RCAF in 1951 and subsequently lived in 16 different homes, in five provinces and England. In the lean years she sewed most of the children’s clothing and many of her own, on a foot-powered Singer. She was an artist, leaning to bright, vibrant colours; a musician; and had a flair for interior decorating. She treasured her association with a bridge club in Ottawa with seven other exceptional women whom she deeply respected and loved. <br> <br>She was a devoted wife and mother and her unrestrained laugh brought warmth to all who knew her. She will most surely be missed. The family wishes to thank the staff of Valley Stream Manor and St. Patrick’s Home for their professional and loving care. A special thanks to those closest to Jeanne who included the doctors, the registered nurses, the registered nurse practitioners and especially the personal support workers, whose dedication and heart-felt concern were outstanding. <br>Family and friends are invited to visit at Cole Funeral Service & Pinecrest Remembrance, 2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa on Friday, September 21, 2018 from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. A Funeral Service will take place in the Pinecrest Remembrance Chapel, 2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. A time of fellowship and refreshments will follow in the Pinecrest Reception Centre.
