SANDERSON/GODSLAND, Jeanette Josephine- It is with great sadness that Jeanette's family announces her passing at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, Burlington on March 20, 2007. Her beloved husband John was at her side. Well loved and respected mother of Alan and Laurie Whitten and Kevin and JaSoon Whitten. Exceptional grandmother to David, Peter, Julian, Jordan, and Jamieson. Her childhood and adolescence were spent in the south of France. Consequently, Jeanette was completely bilingual. From an early age she demonstrated an artistic streak and a sense of style. Given the conditions in wartime France, she left for England with her mother Sophie. In 1954 she emigrated to Canada with her husband Roy Whitten and their two sons. Her bilingualism and flair served her well when she embarked upon a career as a real estate agent for Royal LePage Real Estate in Oakville. Jeanette quickly became one of the top producers in the province and remained so for several years. It is widely believed that she coined the phrase "subpenthouse". Jeanette was a courageous and successful woman, a model for her sons and daughters-in-law. A celebration of her life will be held at the Oakville Club, 56 Water Street, Oakville, Thursday, April the 5th, 2007, between 2 and 4 p.m. The family wishes to express its heartfelt appreciation for the compassion and professionalism of Doctors Norma Wright, Cormay, and the nursing staff of the 3rd floor east and south. In lieu of flowers, donations in the name of Jeanette can be made to the Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, Burlington.
