Born in Manchester on July 29, 1926, she was the daughter of Albert and Eva (Bourassa) Lacerte. She was educated by the Presentation of Mary nuns in the Manchester Catholic schools and volunteered her time for them when she had children of her own.

She was also a member of the Catholic War Veterans Womens' auxiliary. Upon retirement, Jeanne and George enjoyed spending their winters in Florida. Both in FL and NH, many evenings were spent playing cards with their friends and attending weekly Bingo games. More than anything, Jeanne loved being surrounded by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She will be remembered as a fun and devoted Mom and Grandma who loved to laugh and was always ready to learn a new game, even one that involves red Solo cups and ping pong balls!
