January 1926 - May 2020

It is with great sadness that the family of Janina announce her passing on Wednesday May 6 2020 at the age of 94 years.

Janina was predeceased by her husband Czeslaw and her daughter Susanne.

She is lovingly remembered by her family Krys (Doug), Ed (Vivian), Ken (Charlene); grandchildren Jason (Tracy), Jamie (Megan), Vince (Sandra), Jodie (Joe), Joshua, Levi, Bridie, Curtis; Great grandchildren Emma, Matthew, Trinity, Tianna, Cole, Katie; and many family and friends.

Janina was born in Poland and immigrated to Canada in 1948. She met and married Czeslaw, the love of her life and raised their family in Calgary. She has given us glimpes of her life in Poland, bravely coming to Canada and stories of her time here. A time that was important to her was meeting the Pope in Rome while travelling with family. The latter time we spent trying to fill her bucket list with places she hadn't been to around Calgary, trips to Elbow Falls, Drumheller, Canmore, Water Valley, Carmangay; a day betting at the horse races, ride in an UTV, reptile party where she held snakes and lizards, boating/fishing day at Crawling Valley.

Special thank you to the Home Care Staff and Paliative Care nurses for taking such good care of her in her final weeks. Also Krys and Doug for providing such thoughtful care and a good safe home.

In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still, in our hearts you hold a place no one else could ever fill.

To laugh often and much to win the respect of intelligent men and women, to earn the appreciation of honest people and to enjoy beauty, to find the best in others. to leave the world a bit better , weather by a healthy child or a garden patch. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. this is to have succeeded.
excerpts R.W. Emerson
.Having Jean live with us and share our home both before she was ill and after was an incredible gift. She shared her life with us and her story's. from her forced labor in Germany during world war 2 at the age of 13 , to her big adventure coming to Canada at the age of 23, alone, and not speaking English. To meeting her husband and having her children.
we enjoyed her seance of humor, her love of adventure, and the twinkle in her eye., She was always up for a ride weather it be to the Kananaskis, McClean creek or just the store.
She loved plants and working with Krys in the garden, and her walks with Mooch the cat around the house.
She was always thinking she was burden, How I wish she knew how much she gave to us.
She will always be in our hearts,
