    My sincere condolences to Janet’s family. I very much enjoyed chatting with Janet at the Dorchester Residence when I visited with my late father, Jim. Janet had a great sense of humour and I always came away with a smile on my face, after talking with her. She will certainly be missed.

  • Shirley and Art Rutter says:

    We are sadden by the news of Janet’s passing. Our prayers are with the family and friends at this time.

  • Heather and Michael Karabelas says:

    I first met Janet in 1972 while taking a course at Sorrento Centre where she befriended me. We later connected in Summerland and then again at Saint Michael and All Angels Anglican Cathedral. Her welcome smile will be missed in our cathedral community. With sincere sympathy.

  • Cathy Fouchard says:

    Rob, Judy, and Elaine,
    Joe and I are saddened to hear about Janet’s recent death. Although we knew Janet for many years through McDonald’s we really got to know her personally after Bill died. She had such a strong spiritual side and she wanted to make a difference by living according to the manner recorded in the bible. Her church was very important to her. She did not make friends easily as I think her humble nature hid the interesting and loving person that she was. She loved her family and wanted them to be happy and, she wanted to be involved in their lives. She always seemed to struggle with personal growth issues and hopefully, in death, she has found true peace.
    Our thoughts go out to you all in the loss of your mother.
    Cathy and Joe

    Rob, Judy and Elaine. My deepest sympathies re the loss of your Mother Janet. My memories are all joyous from when I first met her in 1980. She was witty, funny and we always shared laughs. Janet treated me as my own Mother and we enjoyed conversations about life. I remember her vividly and share your loss.
    Love Greg Kenzie
