PEDDIE, Janet J.
December 17, 1951 – October 25, 2013
Jan passed away peacefully at NRGH with her family by her side. She is predeceased by her mother, Helen; father, Gordon; and brother, Vic. She is survived by her devoted husband, Wayne; daughter, Megan (Curtis); brother, Doug (Susan); nephews, Chris (Shannon) and Sean (Natasha), their respective children, Chace and Kaydence; sister-in-law, Lois (Darrell); brother-in-law, Don (Susan) and many dear friends in BC and Alberta.
Jan was born in North Battleford, Sask., grew up in Saskatoon and moved to Edmonton where she met her husband, Wayne. After some time living in Prince George, Jan and family moved to Nanaimo, in 1993. Here she worked many years at Canadian Northern Shield Insurance Company and was a member of the Nanaimo Quilters Guild. Jan enjoyed many crafty activities including pottery, tole painting, sewing, quilting, cross-stitching, cake decorating, gardening and cooking. After retirement, Wayne and Jan enjoyed traveling to Yuma, Az and touring in their TR6 with the Old English Car Club. Jan will be remembered watching football with her family, especially her Edmonton Eskimos, caring for the dogs in her life and working in her beautiful garden. At her request no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Janet Peddie Memorial Fund at VIU to support a deserving Horticultural student. This is to reflect Jan’s love of gardening.
