WALKER, Janice Lynn

September 12, 1962 – July 8, 2012

It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of our sister Janice Walker at the age of 49.

Janice was born September 12, 1962 in Edmonton and died July 8, 2012 at home in Calgary. Janice was predeceased by her Dad, Douglas, in 1999, her Mom, Lynn in 2010, and her brother Keith just last summer. She is survived by her brother Doug Walker (Jayne) and sister Lisa Nemeth (James).

Janice took particular delight in her niece Alison Walker and nephews Andrew Walker, Matthew, Jordan and Justin Nemeth and was a big sister to them all. She was a loving and kind-hearted soul and passionately dedicated to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Janice’s focus was always on the needs of others. Janice was especially dedicated to looking after our Mom during the last years of her life and she was a gifted care-giver who worked with the elderly, providing before and after school care for children through the YMCA and finally as an Educational Assistant with special needs children at several Calgary Elementary Schools.

The family extends their gratitude to pastor Stan Block of Rocky Mountain Calvary Chapel and to Janice’s many friends. They have been a close second family to Janice and she cherished each of them very much.

    Farewell Janice
    How do you say goodbye to a friend. With sadness, love but often with a smile as you remember the happy and fun times you had spent with them. When I remember Janice I will smile. I think in the last few years she told my daughter and I, we were beautiful and complimented us more times than any other friend ( thank goodness for Facebook). She always commented on the Smith family’s Facebook photos.

    I have been lucky enough to have known Janice since she was 8 years old. Our families were next door neighbours in Lakeview. Janice was that annoying younger sister of my friend Lisa – that tagging nuisance. She was good friends with my younger brother Stan and was often at our house.

    School was a difficult time for Janice but she remained cheerful despite the challenges.

    We all grew up and moved away but with the Walker family we kept in touch. Is there anything stronger than childhood friends? We saw Janice at celebrations and sadder times. We caught up, chatted and laughed. I was always amazed at her faith and her love of life.

    Janice’s faith was strong and unwavering. We should all take consolation in knowing that Janice is with her God and is safe and joyful to be with him. We are the ones who will miss her, as a sister, friend, co worker and member of her congregation.
    We say goodbye Janice. Take our love to you Mom, Dad and Keith.

    Sheena van Dyk
    Bart and MJ van Dyk
    and all the Smith Family

    Janice was a teachers assistant and also worked at the before and after school care at Ramsay Elementary when my daughter attended the school. She cared for all of the children but she and Elizabeth had a special connection. She stayed at our house with E when my husband and I both had to be out of town and also cat sat for us a few times. She was kind, loving, selfless and had a great sense of humour. She was also famous at Ramsay for making the best chocolate chip cookies in the world! She was commenting on some recent photos of E just last week and I will miss her so much.

    With much love, Hilary, Tony and Elizabeth Argento

    Dear Lisa and Doug and family,
    Janice was a very specail part of my friendship circle and was also very close to my children and my foster children. We deeply miss her already! My children would like for you to know there was a thunder storm last night and we always say lightning is when Angels get there wings and thunder is the drums the Lord plays in celebration. They cried and laughed and clapped we all said congrats Miss Janice we will always love you! Matthew is 10 Alora is 6 she was so very good to us all!

    Thank you for the lovely service and for your kind words about how she cared for your mother and brother. Her compassion was beyond this earth and I was blessed by her friendship and enjoyed our time in Hawaii last year.

    May more joys bless your family than sorrows in the years to come.
    Nichola Hamilton

    Me siento muy consternada por la noticia, crecí pensando en ti toda mi vida y recordaba las Estampidas de Calgary que justo terminaron este fin de semana. Cuando Mrs Lynn me contaba de las cosas que hacia, cuando cantaba el coro de la iglesia y hoy que es mi cumpleaños estaban mas presente en mi vida, nunca imagine que también se puede amar y sentir a la distancia, necesitaba darles un abrazo y decirle a ustedes hermanos Walker que estoy muy triste por lo sucedido. Mucho amor a la distancia
