Condolence: Remembering Janet.

Always a smile and a warm caring greeting
Janet was there at every community meeting
With a camera in hand and a well trained eye
She would line up the stars under her sky
Snapping away to capture us all
Collecting memories while having a ball

Gifted in life with everything she did
There was nothing about herself she ever hid
Her laughter, generosity and smile
Made every greeting more than worthwhile
Family, friends, water skiing and sailing
Real estate, photography, art -there was simply no failing

Those of us who knew Janet, we are all blessed
With the legacy of love, laughter and friendship she left
So the next time you see someone you know
Ask them to share their memories when you say hello
Because I am sure that they will be as enriching as yours
And you will both remember just how much she was adored

Condolence: Sending my deepest condolences!! I just heard about your Mom passing. I was searching for visitation details and am sorry that I missed it. I have such amazing memories of time spent at your house in Ancaster. I always loved the wee dishes your Mom gave us to spit cherry pits in!! We have a few pictures your Mom took of us in your backyard and at my wedding and they are among my favourite. Again sending love and prayers for you all.

Condolence: Dear Family We where so saddened when Bob came downstairs to tell us of the passing of your Mother. We where so fortunate to have had a great one hour phone call with your Mother on Fri. As always at the end of the call she said I love you two sooo much. Thats Janet and what she was always about / family first and friends. Oh so many memories baked beans, parties in the tree house,Elicotville with the Byrnes, lovely suppers at Connies the perfume counter at Eatons where I am sure she got the passion to sell and her love of the family cottage. She loved you all so dearly always telling us how well her grandchildren where doing. We all where so lucky to have your Mother in our lives Take care of each other Love the Mitchells in Noth Van.

Condolence: Our thoughts and love go to Bryan Catherine Jeannie Christie and of course the rest of the family during this time.
Janet had an appreciation for all of what life has to offer which of course could be seen in any photo she had taken.
Know that she's part of every song, every flower, every snowflake and part of all of your sprit.
I'm sorry we were not able to
be there for the celebration but you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Condolence From: Sandy and Vince McMaster
Condolence: Dear Catherine, Bryan, Jeannie and Christie, Just wanting you to know we are thinking of you all and so wish we we could be there to celebrate your mom’s beautiful life. As you well know she was an amazing woman full of love for all those around her. We are going to miss her so much. We have loved reading all the stories about her from all the people who have known her over the years. We will have your mom in our hearts forever. We have so many great memories of Janet at the cottage in Fernbank, teaching me how to waterski, taking me waterskiing, coming to visit us in Chesterville, taking beautiful photographs of all the family and the world around her. We have saved all her Christmas cards she has sent us over the years with her lovely personal messages. She was truly an extraordinary woman full of love and kindness to all she met. Love you all lots of hugs Sandy and Vince
