My deepest condolences to Terry and family, Rob amd family and Jim and family. I so have known Janet from when she was a little girl and I frequented the Garden family home. She was forever the gentle, kind, smiling little sister..and she continued to be that throughout her life...a pioneer in so many ways...from dental nursing, to entering business with Ruth...but her love of her hubby and family were her greatest joyful ness I ever observed..from times at Katepwa ....my heart aches for your loss...May Janet be at rest. Take care...a dearest soul who has left way too soon.

To the Garden/Miller families. That was a very moving service for Janet on April 20th. I only got to know her in the 90’s when I visited Wolseley frequently after my mother, Edith Marlin was widowed. My mom dealt with Janet for financial matters and advice and was always pleased. When I went to GrantTax with Mom on many occasions, it was a pleasure dealing with Janet and having a personal chat with her as well as the business talk. I also remember that Edith and Phyllis were very good friends.
I will share a memory that demonstrates her kindness and generosity. When Janet learned that my WHS graduating class was having a 50th reunion in Wolseley in 2010, she offered to let me and my husband stay at her and Terry’s home. What a privilege to stay in that lovely house that Rob mentioned at the service. I was able to put the banner that I had made in honor of our reunion up on the balcony for all to see. I have kept in touch with her, mostly electronically, before and after that event.
In closing, I send my sincerest condolences to all of Janet’s family. She was a lovely person and a joy to know. She will be greatly missed.

A profound sadness has been cast over our town. Janet will be remembered as kind, positive and recently, courageous. She and Terry were admired as an example of how a couple's love is an enduring gift that radiates to all who knew them. Our families have known each other for three generations, and it gives me some comfort to know that most of us will rest in Wolseley forever. A life well lived.

Auntie Janet was the centre of our family - she organised our family gatherings, and kept us together after Nana’s passing. She was always so calm and kind, such a wonderful person and listener with a great understanding of people. I have such great memories of our times together in Wolseley and at the lake. Auntie Janet and Uncle T came such a great distance for our wedding in Somerset, England and her words of advice in her card to us still resonate: “Be gentle with each other.” I think it sums up her heart and soul perfectly. Auntie Janet, you will be sorely missed, but I’m relieved you’re no longer suffering and in pain. Sending loads of love to Uncle T, Jarrod, Kristin, Jillian and family. Wishing we could be there with you all. Xoxo
