During her younger years in Great Britain, she worked for de Havilland making Mosquito bombers in support of the war effort. Over the years, she enjoyed square dancing, music, baking, gardening, and spending time with family and friends. Thanks to the 2nd and 5th floor staff at Extendicare York. At Jan’s request, there will be no services. A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.

  3. My condolences to Sandy, Jim, Heather & Kim, and all the family of Jan’s. So sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of Jan when I lived in the same subdivision as her, and her daughter and grandchildren. My girls, Dana, Ashley & Erin, would often spend time together over at her house, while she was watching Heather & Kim. She shared many stories with me, over the years. I will always remember her kindness, and love that she shared. Rest In Peace Jan! I know you are probably chatting up a storm up in Heaven now with everyone. Keep on shining your light ! ✨🙏

  4. My sincere condolences to all of Janet’s family. I had lovely visits with Janet when I visited Pearl.
    Janet was a very good companion to Pearl her roommate at Extendicare York. Janet loved to sit and chat about her family. She also enjoyed her taped music. The last time I saw Janet was at Pearls service. I’m sorry I did not get to visit with her after that.
