Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Dec 27th in her 83rd year. Janet was born in Rugby, England and moved to Canada in her twenties where she met her beloved husband Tom of 55 years. Janet was deeply dedicated to her family. She will be loving remembered by Tom, her three daughters Sharon, Linda, Carol Ann, two grandchildren Nyah and Quinn, her brother Hugh (Stephanie), sisters Avril and Norreys (John) and her sister-in-laws Anne and Nancy (Keith) and 11 nieces and nephews.
A long-time resident of Oakville, Janet was very involved in her community. She volunteered at the Oakville Hospital for 25 plus years, St. John’s United Church and Brantwood school.
