Jeanette Cannonier (1942-2019)
A former independent senator and long-serving chairwoman of the Public Service Commission, Jeanette Cannonier, has died, aged 76.
David Burt, the Premier, yesterday expressed his condolences to Ms Cannonier’s family. He said that Ms Cannonier had served as the chairwoman of the PSC for 14 years and retired in 1997.
Mr Burt added: “After many years on the PSC, Ms Cannonier again answered the call to public service as an independent senator. “She was an early voice in support of mandatory seatbelts in Bermuda and spoke regularly to highlight the need for better care of seniors.
“On behalf of the Government and the people of Bermuda I wish to express sincere condolences to her husband, children and family.”
Funeral arrangements will be announced later. She is survived by husband George Cannonier and children Duane and Melanie.
