Jan passed away at her home with her family at her side on Tuesday, April 16, 2019. She is survived by her two loving sons, Manley (Joanne), and Darcy both of Kelowna; five grandchildren: Clayton, Tanner, Amanda, Jessy and Dawson; and one sister Zorine. She taught school most of her life and really loved teaching her Grade 1 and 2 classes. She spent countless hours preparing for class each week and was well known for her Grade 1 classroom children square dancing for the School Christmas concerts each year. Her real passion, however, was dancing with her loving husband Marty, and we believe they are dancing together in heaven right now. She also enjoyed playing banjo in the family band but devoted every spare minute of her free time to her family. She dedicated her entire life to her children, and there is absolutely nothing she wouldn’t do for us. She really was the most generous and loving mother ever, and we will forever remember her as the very best mom in the whole wide world. Love Always.
God saw the road was getting rough,
the hills were hard to climb,
And so He came and gently closed
these loving eyes of thine.
A Memorial Service will be held on Monday, May 27, 2019 at 11:00 am at the Kelowna Seventh-day Adventist Church, 1130 Springfield Rd, Kelowna, BC with Pastor Edward Skutshek officiating.
