She attended and graduated from Loretto Abbey in 1982, followed by Queen’s University, University of Toronto Bachelor of Education, and Association Montessori International. Sports were a big part of her life from a young age, actively participating in figure skating, competitive and recreational tennis, skiing, and golf. She was a much sought-after golf partner for all events, and even managed to play at a family Thanksgiving tournament in mid-October (which she won!). She thoroughly enjoyed her friendships and activities at the Granite Club, Rosedale Golf Club, and the Windermere Golf and Country Club in Muskoka.
elevated UANSM Janet’s ultimate joy was her role as mother to four children, to which she dedicated her energy and love unconditionally. She routinely attended and supported the children’s education, hockey, skiing, basketball, tennis, dance, music, and frequent breaks to the local ice cream store. Among her happiest times were summers spent with her family at her cottage on the Miklas property in Muskoka, surrounded by close friends, and easy access to all the activities she loved.
elevated UANSM Janet will forever be remembered by her beloved husband, Stephen Moffat, and her four children, James, Jake, Ryan and Elizabeth. Other members of the household include faithful friend, Marjorie, and Janet’s affectionate canine shadow, Poppi.
