    To the family of Janet Weisner. My sincere condolences in the passing of Janet. I was a classmate of hers in Langevin and Crescent Heights. Although I have not seen her in some years – I am sure she was a wonderful mother and grandmother and that you will all miss her.

  2. I will miss Janet and our luncheons. I will remember with fondness all the fun times we had in the past with our respective husbands – at family dinners, occasional picnics, and special get aways with our handicapped spouses. I know she’s at peace now and perhaps enjoying passionate, political discussions with her husband, Gary and her brother, Herb. Lovingly remembered by Diane Dippel, her sister-in-law

    Janet and I worked together in the Finance Department of Mount Royal probably for at least 15 years. I can honestly say that I never saw Janet without a smile on her face. We all adored Gary and thought Janet was most fortunate in finding such a match.
    She always got a new outfit for Christmas from Gary and always wore it in the new year so we could see it.
    Lovely memories…more than I can say.
