Jeanne Pinault

Jeanne M. Pinault, 82, of Cambridge passed away peacefully Monday, March 28, 2016 at Chesapeake Woods Center, Cambridge.
Born July 11, 1933 in Putnam, Connecticut, she was a daughter of the late Olive Gammon and Robert William Pinault.

Jeanne loved her work and also was passionate for books and art. She moved from Annapolis to Cambridge more than ten years ago and was active in the Dorchester Arts Center.

R. Newkirk My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family and friends of Jeanne. Notice this wonderful guarantee found at John 5:25: "Most truly I say to you, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live." Yes, you have the hope of seeing Jeanne again. Knowing the pain and agony that death causes, the God of comfort will fulfill His promise of a time when there will be no more death, sorrow, crying, or pain. Revelation 21:4. I realize that your grief may at times be overwhelming, but you can rest assured that God hears your prayers and He will guard your hearts and minds. Philippians 4:6,7 May He continue to be with. Please accept my condolences. 05/12/2016 A. Wingfield Extending deepest sympathy to family and friends in this time of sorrow. Please find comfort in knowing that soon all those in the memorial tombs will hear Jesus voice and come out (John 5:28,29). Until that blessed day, may the GOD of all comfort grant you peace (2 Cor. 1:3,4) while may fond thought of Ms. Jeanne warm your hearts. 04/14/2016 Cindy Hinnendael Oh, Jeanne Annapolis lawn sale 20 years ago. You always sent me holiday cards, hand drawn bunnies, kittens, pastel flowers and packages with colorful bows. Every six months we would catch up, always the hour call was chockful of town art events. I will miss Cindy Hilton Head 04/08/2016 Lois McKenzie Jeanne and I met about 2 plus years ago by way of the Wednesday Morning Artists Group. In addition to art we seemed to have quite a bit in common from the start finding out that she spent time growing up in Western Maryland as did I, and even living in the same house before her. Jeanne was a very elegant and lovely lady who prided herself on her independent spirit, and at times that made it difficult for her to ask for help. Jeanne would call me her "Sultaness of Soup" as cooking was another similar interest we shared which is a lot like painting with all the preparation and mixing. In the short time I knew Jeanne, we were able to get together socially at the Dorchester Center for the Arts to take in a performance or two, and an occasional lunch date (the first she insisted be at her house so she could show me how much she changed it). A great lady with an intellect and wit that I will miss. Perhaps artists are given the job after they leave this world to continue to display their talents in nature for us to enjoy, so Jeanne, Ill be watching for your presence. Lois 04/01/2016 Kathy Ten Eyck My husband Larry and I were new friends of Jeanne.....introduced to her through Melanie Hampton, and subsequently meeting Jeanne at the DCA at various events. We always loved hearing her pronounce our name correctly and saying.."why here are The Ten Eycks" Larry and I visited her at her home this past Autumn, and I visited her in February at the nursing home....sharing photos of paintings and photographs of my husbands while she tried to console me over his untimely passing in December. My husband and I both cherished our very short, but very sweet friendship with Jeanne..... 03/30/2016
