With her immediate family by her side, Janice Plantje passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 after a long brave fight with ALS.

She will be dearly missed by her dog Charley. Janice was predeceased by her mother Violet Fendall.

The family would like to thank Dr. Kim Wilmot for his continued support, her homecare assistant and friend Jessica Balaski, and all her close friends and family for loving support over the past decade.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 2:00 p.m.  Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

  4. It was a long and vary hard battle for Jani and her family during the last few years and now she is at peace. Jani lived and loved life to the fullest never missing an opportunity to laugh and say what was on her mind, that is what I loved about her the most. She will be missed.
    I am sad that I won’t be able to be there on Wednesday but my thoughts and heart are with you.
    I am very sorry for your loss.
    Love and Huggs to everyone

    I was greatly saddened to read in the Herald that Janice passed away this week. Even when you know its coming, doesn’t make it any easier. My heart breaks for you and your family as you celebrate her life, mourn her passing and as you adjust to life without your life partner, mother, grandmother and sister.
    Blessings
