In Loving Memory of
Janis Ann Annett (nee Stewart)
December 10, 1947-April 2, 2020

Passed away suddenly yet peacefully at home on April 2nd.

Predeceased by parents Jack and Ruth (Boyd) Stewart and of course her idol Elvis the King.

Will be greatly missed by her husband Carl and her loving children Todd (Karen), Chris (Kristina) and Michelle (Blair).  

Beloved step-mother of Teresa, Alex (predeceased) and Paula (Phillip).

Doting grandma of Brett, Garret, Whittier, Keaton, Leighton, Rachel, Aiden, Katherine, Kylie and great grandchildren Olympia and Zeke.

We are comforted that she achieved most of her life’s dreams; living in the country surrounded by family,friends and of course her many beloved animals.  
She had a passion for flower gardening which was admired by many.
Despite her physical limitations, that did not dissuade her from going on many adventurous journeys with her beloved friends.
She will be dearly missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known her.

Her favourite quote was always “live, love and laugh”.  Let’s keep doing that.

A Celebration of  life will be held

Condolences to the family. Janis and I have been friends since public school. She always said live today as your last: as you never know what tomorrow will bring. How true, as I'm still trying to absorb the loss of a valuable friend.

To Janis's family, my heart goes out to you. Janis was a high school friend and had a wonderful sense of humor, just the other night I told her she was a nut and she would never change. Her answer was "I hope not". She will be missed.

I am so sorry for you loss. The untimely loss of a parent is so difficult and leaves a mark that never will be erased. I never met your mother, but as a parent myself I know that nothing makes a parents heart more happy than seeing their child succeed in life, and your mother got to see you succeed in so many ways, I am sure couldn't have been more proud.

Our condolences to Janis's family. We were school mates and friends for many years. We could have written a book on our younger years and always had a remember when and had a good laugh when we met. We tiptoed through my mum's tulips one morning to Tiny Tim's song and she said we would do it again and will the next time we meet.
God Bless all of you!

To all of Janis’ family: So very sad to hear of Janis passing away. Got to know her at the Manor. Her infectious laugh and the things she enjoyed were wonderful. She was so very proud of her children, and happy with the things she got to do. May the love, peace and comfort of God and others surround you at this difficult time and in the days to come.

I will miss Janis so much!! She was such a smiley and lovely person. She was one lady I always looked forward to seeing when she came into the clinic, or around town. She always said hi, asked about how you were...always interested in your life, well being. Always had time for laughs and conversation, and to ask to see pictures of my daughter. I will miss you so much, and hearing your voice...always happy and positive. <3
