Unexpectedly at Sunnybrook Hospital, Janet passed away on May 12.
Beloved wife of Charlie, devoted mother to Shelley (Peter) and Gavin (Holly), and doting grandmother to Harrison, Roselyn, Evangeline and Brielle.
A long-time resident of Whitby, ON, at heart Janet was always a small-town girl from Manotick, ON where her father Ron Watson and brothers Jeff and Doug still reside.
Janet’s most favourite place to be was on the shores of the Passamaquoddy at their second home lovingly known as the West Bay House in St. George, NB.
It was at the West Bay House where friends and family were welcomed and made to feel at home by Janet’s generous hospitality and joyful spirit.
Janet was a nurse at Scarborough General for 30 years and was adored by colleagues and patients alike.
An accomplished gardener, cook, seamstress and volunteer with the Whitby Kinettes, Janet will be most remembered as a dear friend to all who knew her.
A funeral service will be held in Manotick at St. James Anglican Church (1138 Bridge St.) on Saturday, May 26 at 11 a.m. A Celebration of Life will be held in Whitby at the Royal Canadian Legion (117 Byron St. S) on Tuesday, May 29 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Arthritis Society or the Phototherapy Education and Research Centre at Women’s College Hospital.
