Jeanette McGeorge

09.01.1942 - 12.12.2021

Jeanette passed away on 12th December 2021 aged 79 years.
She was a loving mother to her only child Emma McGeorge and a friend to Emma’s Partner Stephen, a grandmother to Jade and Sienna and a sister to Sheila, Maureen, Peter, Marie, Pam and John.
Her life sadly ended due to a long battle with Parkinsons but she will be remembered for all her life’s achievements.
She joined the Metropolitan Police as a constable in 1963 and retired as Detective Constable in 1975. Among her many roles in the police force her duties included close protection of dignitaries and royalty both in the UK and from abroad.
In 1975 she moved to France where she remained for 10 years. She loved the slow pace of life living as one of the only brits amongst the locals at that time. She greatly missed France later in life and returned several times. Once working for the British Embassy in Paris as PA to the Naval Attache for the MOD and a second time for her retirement to the South West of France.
During her retirement she spent many holidays visiting family in different parts of the world on their postings. She was a free spirit who loved to explore the world and even moved to Cyprus for a couple of years at one point to be closer to family.
Jeanette had many friends of all ages. She had the ability to light up a room with her laughter. She was always there to give advice and help her family.
She will be sorely missed but everyone who knew her knows she is at peace now laughing again in heaven.

Jeanette, I have only just found out that you have left this life. It will be a lesser place without you in it. I am grateful to have known you and I wish I could have had the chance to tell you how much your guidance and friendship meant to me. I have loved reading all the messages and they all share the same theme. You were an amazing friend to so many; regardless of age or background. You had a wanderlust and a curiosity that defined you and made you the extraordinary person we loved. I shall miss you enormously and feel bereft to think that I cannot speak to you again or receive an email or letter from you. Thank you for your friendship, wise counsel and all the wonderful evenings we spent putting the world to rights, glass of wine in hand. I will never forget you. With much love from Lisa xxxx



I wish I could find the photos of the great times I shared with Jeanette and her daughter Emma.
She was always there for me and I still think about her words of wisdom and tales of her journey through life.
Jeanette was such a positive influence on me and I’m truly blessed to have know such an amazing person. She will always be missed.x

John remembers helping a reluctant Jeannette with arithmetic before her 11+ exam. Years later Jeannette at her cottage in the French woods hosted our daughter Anne before her GCE exams. Later still Jeannette and a teenaged Emma were guests at Anne's wedding in Oxford.
Keeping up with Jeannette was not simple but we managed for birthdays and Christmas at least.
You travelled a long road, Jeannette, some of it not easy. You have earned and are worthy of your eternal rest.
God Bless. XX

I first met Jeanette in 1951 when she was 9 years old. She and an older sister, Maureen,came to live with the Tupper family (my mum, dad, John and me) in Gladys Avenue, Portsmouth. She had an adventurous spirit, was well liked and we'll travelled. We kept in touch wherever she was in the world.
Rest in peace now Jeanette.

Remembering Aunty Jeanette fondly - particularly the two weeks I spent with her in France aged 14. She was renovating the barn, and trying to get me to speak French! Always loved her visits to Grandmas house when we would get to play with our cousin Emma! A life of adventures and travels - remembered with love - Anne x

Such sad news. I have so many great memories of times spent with Jeanette. Meals with friends in Lincoln and fun in Paris when she worked there. She was clever and brave and generous. A kind friend and just a decent human being. She embraced change and the many new opportunities that came her way. She lived life to the full and I admired her for that. My thoughts are with her family and their loss.

I will always treasure my fabulous memories of my times with Jeannette. The many fun-filled conversations and debates we shared. How she introduced me to many beautiful French culinary delights and the relaxing experience of sipping French red wine whilst nibbling on tasty cheese and crackers. Jeannette always welcomed others into her home and showed true interest in their lives and beliefs. She provided a relaxing, easy-going retreat and I always felt comfortable and at home in her presence. I was honoured to have Jeanette take time and make the effort to travel from any distance to join us for special occasions such as our Wedding and the Christening of our son Seth. She will forever be in my heart and be loved. Here' s to seeing you one day in your peaceful place. Much love, Katherine xoxo

Aunty Jeanette was more than just an Aunt. To me, she was like another mum, a loyal friend and confidant. I've always looked up to Jeanette and know I learned many things from her, through the loving guidance she gave. Jeanette was wonderful company and I can recall many great moments together. I've always treasured every minute we spent together and know I hated leaving her after we ever managed to meet. She was also a loving and close sister to mum. They always looked out for each other. I have lovely memories of being with Aunty Jeanette from my earliest years as boy, until today. I shall miss her so very much because I love Jeanette so dearly.

Caroline Martin


Thank you Auntie Jeannette for being part of our family. I shall remember you for your insights and opinions on a wider world when I was a teenager. Thereafter Mum (Pam) used to share your regular letters with me and I shall remember your handwriting! We both shared a love for my amazing Nanna. Goodbye. Love Caroline
