POMEROY – Janet Mae (nee Watson)

July 23, 1928 – May 14, 2010

Surrounded by her loving family, Jan (Janet Mae) Pomeroy passed away peacefully at Chinook Hospice on Friday May 14, 2010.

Jan will be lovingly remembered and always missed by her three sons, Jim (and Diane), John (and Rebecca), and Allen (and Amanda) and 2 grandchildren, Kathryn and Mike; her brothers Bob (and Norma) and
Dave (and Lois); a rich abundance of other relatives and many friends.
She was predeceased by her husband Bill, her son Brian and her sister Margaret. An incredible woman, Jan’s talents were many and her enthusiasm was great. She was a devoted mother and wife.

Jan trained as a nurse and practiced those caring skills throughout her life. When the boys were young she helped to make things happen indoors and out – scouting and school, church and family. As the boys grew so did Jan’s facilitating of skiing and hiking, climbing and canoeing, and cooking classes. Always an enabling force in all our lives, Jan also found time for her passions. Her thumb was green and her yard and greenhouse reflected it. Her wine won awards and she taught others sewing skills. Jan was an active volunteer in the community and church. She was a lifetime member of the Nordic Ski Club. Jan was a familiar face at cookie races and in many other volunteer roles including the Canadian Cancer support group, Confederation Park, her wine club and many others.

Jan’s legacy lives in on with sons who can cook, friends who smile and a world that is a brighter place for her having passed through. Our many thanks to the caring staff of Unit 100 at the Foothills Medical Centre and the compassionate care of the staff at Chinook Hospice. In lieu of flowers we would welcome donations to the Intercare Chinook Hospice, 1261 Glenmore Trail, S.W. Calgary, Alta., T2V 4Y8

    Jim, Diane, Kate and Michael
    Our most sincere condolences. We are so sorry for your loss.
    I am remembering the Christmas visit where there was a lot of laughter, good natured teasing (she who must be obeyed) and a little bit of wine. It is a nice memory.
    We will see you when you get back home. In the meantime know that while we can not be there our thoughts are with you.
    All our love,
    Darell and Shelly

    Jim and Diane, Kathryn and Michael,

    David and I were so sorry to hear of your Mother and Grandmother’s passing. We will always remember how interesting and lively she was when we saw her at your house here in Newmarket and how ready for adventure she was when we saw her (and you) in Puerto Vallarta – whether it was climbing a million steps to get to the best Tapas and sunset views or exploring along the Malecon or Marina she was game to explore and try new things.

    Kathryn and Michael – how fortunate you were to have your Grandmother’s influence and love in your lives. Her wonderful legacy lives on in you as well as your Dad and Mother and your Uncles and Aunts.

    Barbara and David

    So very sorry to hear of Jan’s passing. We were unaware of it until after the funeral. Janet was a good friend and we truly enjoyed the times together at church and in the book club. She will be deeply missed. Kathleen said she talked to her a couple times a year and she will miss her wise words and the laughter they shared. Our thoughts are with you.
