Jeanne was as nice a person as there is on the planet, as generous as the day is long, and a stunning musician. My heart goes out to Patty and her sister and brothers, who have given me goose bumps with their kindness and inclusion. Thank you, Jeanne, for the privilege of knowing you.

Jeanne Pouliot Arland Peterson makes me proud to hail from the north side of Mpls. Jeanne was a wondrous part of the ferment of northside artistry that included the Lundstrom Dance empire. My mother, another French Canadian from the north side, talked about Jeanne, the Andrews Sisters from North High, Dorothy Lundstrom and her sister Marion Lundstrom Boucher often in one breath. My Dad, a several-decade choir director at Ascension church, loved the self-expressed, passionate neighborhood, and so do I. Thanks, Jeanne !!

From the entire Peterson family, thank you, Paul, for this incredible article. I hope that all of Minnesota knows how proud mom was to live, play and raise her family here. She loved the welcoming spirit that Minnesotans have. Thank you all for championing her rise in the notorious 'boys club" that is the music business. She truly loved you all.

@consielee1. Finally somebody mentioned the Pouliot name. My grandmother and Jeanne Peterson's mother were sisters, their maiden names were Mingo... yes, French Canadian. I live now in CT and am enjoying all the tributes to Jeanne. My condolences to the Peterson family.
