elevated 0k0Bq Jane was born in Kirkland Lake, ON and was first generation Canadian. Jane moved to Toronto in the early 60’s and started working at Bell.  After joining a bowling league, she met and fell in love with Bill and soon they were a family with Gord. Once Gord finished elementary school, Jane joined Tim Hortons, which turned out to be a great way to keep the pulse of the community while raising a middle schooler. She moved to opportunities through the years and her favorite job was working at the architect firm in Oakville. Jane left us with wonderful stories about her adventures at guides, skiing, swimming, travels to Long Point Lake with family and the infamous animal tricks. Jane loved spending time with family and friends. Many of us enjoyed benefits of her talents for sewing, crochet and knitting and will remember her each time we wrap ourselves in a blanket she made to keep us warm during the Canadian winters.  

elevated 0k0Bq We are deeply grateful to the wonderful friends and services that have supported and helped Jane over the years. 

elevated 0k0Bq Jane will be dearly missed. We will honour her request to hold a family only graveside service and interment.
