Beulah Jeanne was born to Lawrence and Margaret Chisholm at Lady Grey Hospital in Nipawin on August 16, 1936.
Jeanne was the 2nd oldest of 8 children. Her brothers and sisters were: Valerie, Sharon, Larry, Ron, Louise, Rocky and Dwight.
Jeanne and her brothers and sisters were musically talented and always made time for playing and singing.
Jeanne was raised in the White Fox area, Flin Flon and Rivers End, then moved to White Fox to attend high school and work. She boarded with the Bakers and worked in their store while attending school. Here Jeanne met Gary Brisbin and they were married in 1954. Together they had 3 children, Rand, Roxeen and Michelle.
Jeanne was a fabulous singer and along with husband Gary, formed several dance bands over the years.
Jeanne was also an incredible hostess and cook. Often friends and family would come to visit, sometimes more than 20 people at one time, and Jeanne easily managed to feed and entertain all of them. She loved to be surrounded by friends and family.
Jeanne and Gary lived in White Fox and Resource before moving to the Botany district to farm. After a tragic accident took Gary’s life in 1982, Jeanne moved to Nipawin to live and work.
Jeanne’s grandchildren and great grandchildren were her pride and joy. Devon (Linda) Brisbin, Jake and Blakelyn, Geoff (Cindy) McBain, Enver, Ross McBain, Grant McBain, Jenna Hlady and Tanner Hlady. Her grandchildren inherited her musical talent, wit and sense of humour.
