May 24, 1930 - May 21, 2019

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Janet on May 21, 2019 at St. Norbert Personal Care Home. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.
She was predeceased by her husband Don; her parents, Albert and Ethel; and her six siblings. She leaves to cherish her memory one daughter Sandy (husband Justin), grandson Rob (partner Kailey), grandson Jack, and many nieces and nephews who loved her so much.
In the early years Mom worked at The Bay downtown as an elevator operator, then went on to manage the housewares department. She later ran the health and beauty department at Hazelwood Davis, a division of the Codville Company.
She was known for her meticulous fashion sense, polished nails, and matching shoes and handbags. She loved the little cottage she owned at Grand Beach where she could sit in the sun and work on her glowing suntan every summer. Family times were everything to her. Sunday roast beef dinners at her sister Norma's house, spirited games of cribbage, and Christmas baking were some of her most favourite moments. Becoming a grandmother brought her so much joy. Her eyes never sparkled brighter than when she held her grandsons in her arms.
Heartfelt thanks to the staff at St. Norbert Personal Care Home for the kindness and comfort they showed Mom during her short stay there.
Respecting my mom's wishes, no formal funeral service will be held. She never liked a big fuss. A small family gathering will be held so we can say our final farewells.
In lieu of flowers a donation made to the Winnipeg Humane Society would be lovely.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Our Dearest Auntie Net, she was the apple of Wendy and my eye... she always was our special Aunt and would treat us thru the years to either a favourite doll, or buying us matching brocade dresses with mink tails. We would admire her fashion designs and would be in awe with all her matching shoes and purses on each special outing. She had a heart of gold and was always there to please and stick up for us girls... My Dad, the eldest brother talked Auntie Net into getting her Driver’s license, so she took lessons and surprised everyone by buying her own car and was so independent. She was an avid baker and for many occasions and especially Christmas whipped up a delicious Matrimonial cake with yummy dates... Uncle Ken would say, Net you're the best cook, since it was his favourite treat... then of course told Auntie Norma she was the best cook too when she made him a special treat. All these wonderful memories of family get-togethers, so many dinners at 440 Martin Ave. and West Hawk Lake, the family cottage and thru the years, my heart will always have a special place for these cherished memories, Auntie Net was so supportive to me when my Mom was critical last year from her fall, and she offered me so much support and endless chats. She gave from her heart and it was her special quality... And I never will forget her love of family bonds. She truly deserves to Rest In Peace now and be free from all her struggles as she never complained to anyone... We will always love you Our Dear Auntie Net xcx Hugs Debbie, Stan, & Family xxx - Posted by: Debbie (Neice) on: May 26, 2019
