Dear Paul, Peggy and families,
I am so very sorry to hear of Jan’s passing. My mother spoke very fondly of her, and they kept in touch until my mother Vina passed in 2006. I vividly remember when both of you boarded the train in Marathon with her to start your new life in Kamloops. Your mother was a very respected teacher here in Marathon , and her name continues to come up with a smile. Please accept our condolences for your loss. Pam and Terry Blanch
