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.
