We Remember

LAMONT, Janet E.

It is with great sadness that the family of Janet Eleanor Lamont announce her passing on December 19, 2018, in Kelowna, BC, at the age of 71 years.  After a two-year battle with cancer, Janet fought her last fight and is now at peace.

Kelowna has been home for Janet for over 50 years and it is here she began her career as a jeweler for Birks Jewellers and founded Okanagan Collie Rescue.  Janet’s devotion to her family, friends, and animals are a legacy which will burn bright for many years.

Janet is survived by her loving husband of 42 years, Robert Lamont; her daughter, Cynthia Lamont and twins, Connor and Aislinn, of Calgary, AB; Michael Lamont, of Ithaca, New York; and David Lamont, wife Jackie, and daughters, Madeline and Kaitlin, of North Vancouver, BC.  There will be a celebration of life for Janet in the Spring of 2019.  In lieu of flowers, please donate to Janet’s favourite charities, Okanagan Collie Rescue (www.collierescue.ca) or the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (www.jdrf.ca).

  • Deborah McBride says:

    Sincere condolences Bob and family. Janet was one of the original animal Rescuers and I knew her from that part of her realm so many years ago. She was a warrior! She also was a good example to the Rescues coming later. Her integrity and her moral compass served the souls she rescued well. I hope you will be comforted a tiny bit knowing that her reception at the Rainbow Bridge is amazing !

    My condolences To each of you, I feel I have lost a BFF!! Janet was one in a million, I will miss the silliness we shared together, the cruises, and our many emails over the years! I’m so glad we were able to visit her in early November, and have dinner with her and Bob, even though she was in great physical pain!
    I know there was a gigantic meeting with her grateful adoptees at the bridge! Janet was the greatest advocate for rescue dogs! Bless her loving ❤️
