LACY, Janet Elizabeth (nee Wallace) -
February 1, 1934 - September 29, 2023
After a courageous struggle with pulmonary fibrosis over the last year, our very dear and kind Mom, Janet Lacy, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Friday, September 29, 2023 in Burlington.
We honestly thought she would live forever. She was our Energizer Bunny. Janet had more energy than anyone we knew, had a tremendous zest for life, was always up for the next adventure, had a very positive attitude always, and a fun spirit.
She welcomed one and all into her home and into her life and once you met her once you were always met the next time with a kiss and a hug. She was interesting and was interested in all and everybody.
She could converse with any person on this earth and make them feel as though they were the centre of the universe. She loved tremendously and was loved by all.
She was the beloved wife of the late Jack (d. 2013) and loving mother of John (Annette Ramey) of Canmore, Alberta, Alison (Joe Fehervari) of Toronto and Bruce (Jenny Coats) of Guelph. Janet was predeceased by her parents, Helen and Morrison Wallace and her brother William Wallace and sister-in-law Carley Wallace, all of Kingston, by her sister Mary Hedges of England and her niece Annleigh Wallace.
She is survived by her dear nieces Elizabeth Buckland and Elizabeth Kerr and great-nephews Jack and Sam Buckland. Janet was a graduate of the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing where she formed many deep friendships.
She was well suited for nursing as she was an extremely kind, compassionate, caring and patient person (although, as a child of a nurse, you weren't "allowed" to be sick!).
Family meant the world to our Mom and she would do anything for us, and we would do anything for her.
We are comforted that she is reunited with our dear Dad, the love of her life.
The family wish to thank Dr. Cuddy for his years of caring and support, and Dr. McCarthy and his palliative team at Joseph Brant hospital.
Visitation at Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant St., Burlington on Monday, October 16th from 7:00 - 9:00p.m. Service at Wellington Square United Church, 2121 Caroline St., Burlington on Tuesday, October 17th at 11 a.m. Reception to follow.
If desired an expression of sympathy to your choice of charity would be sincerely appreciated by the family.
