It is with great sadness, that we announce the passing of Janette Mary Hargreaves on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, at the age of 48 years. Janette passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, at the Grace Hospital.
Janette is survived by her parents, Raymund and Kathleen; her brother David, his daughters, Chantel and Brianne; her sister Julie Meakin and husband Kyle; as well as aunts, uncles and cousins in Canada and the U.K. She also leaves behind her loving boyfriend Trevor Coulthard, and numerous friends.
Janette was born on August 20, 1970 in Prince Albert, SK, and then moved to Winnipeg. She graduated from Oak Park High School and obtained employment with Central Park Lodge, achieving a 20-year service award. She was a member of Special Olympics and won many gold medals over the years in Rhythmic Gymnastics. Janette also participated in bowling, where she met Trevor. She enjoyed living with friends in a group home, hosting house parties and spending time at the lake cottage. Having been bitten by the travel bug very young, through trips to England with her family, she was always excited to be planning the next holiday. In 2016, Janette moved to St. Amant where she received kind and compassionate care. Janette was a gentle soul and showed deep concern for others. She loved life, loved to laugh and at every social she would always be up and dancing all night until the music stopped. Her kindness and zest for life will be greatly missed.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Paul the Apostle Roman Catholic Church, 2400 Portage Avenue, on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. with reception to follow. Final resting place will be at the Queen of Heaven Mausoleum at Assumption Cemetery in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The family would like to give special thanks to Connect Employment Services, DASCH Inc., St. Amant, and the Grace Hospital.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Connect Employment Services or the St. Amant Foundation.
