She was the headline act of Coaticook's Union Musicale to become the nationally known singer. In the 1920s, she won fame in Coaticook's Opera House, then she distinguished herself in several opera houses and theatres, and she organized, at her place, several garden parties to raise funds destined to organizations of the region. Following her father's example, she was very involved in the well-being of people in her region.

In 1936, he won a medal of Foreign Business for his commitment in his society. Jeanne Bachand took over the family store during a few years to pass the torch to her own daughter who shut it down in 1960.
