PICKARD, Janet Rosemary (nee Waters)

PICKARD, Janet. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mum, Janet Pickard. She was born January 7th, 1935 in England and passed away Wednesday July 5th, 2017 in Alliston. Her favourite pastime was golfing with her friends on the fairways of Bear Creek Golf Course. She touched the hearts of many and was loved by all who knew her. People called her “The Lady”. Mum was predeceased by her husband, Harry; mother, Annie; father, Charlie; and sister, Mary. Janet leaves behind her sister Patricia (Phil) and extended family in England; her children: Julie, Colin and Sara; grandchildren: Alison (Jeff), Mike (Eve), Lindsey (Eric), Darren and Jackson; and great-grandchildren: Jeremy and Eleanor. We thank Dr. Li and the staff at RVH, the Saint Elizabeth homecare nurses, Matthew’s House Hospice, and her friends and neighbours who continually helped and supported Mum in so many ways. As per her wish there was no funeral and she will be cremated. A Celebration of Life was held at her home in Angus July 8th. Donations to the Cancer Centre at the RVH are welcome.  Messages of condolence can be left at www.peacefultransition.ca

Peaceful Transition Inc. has been a part of Barrie and the surrounding community since 1995. In that time, we have grown to become an easy alternative to the traditional full-service funeral homes. We provide simple options for cremation and burial at a fraction of the cost. There are two types of funeral establishments governed by the Board of Funeral Service in Ontario, Full Service Funeral Homes and Transfer Services. While Peaceful Transition Inc. is classified as a Transfer Service, we provide almost all of the same services as a funeral home without the need of their involvement and at a much lower cost. We specialize in keeping things simple which means no extras or added costs and personalized care, respect and service for both the deceased and your family. Our purpose is not to pressure you into purchases that you don’t require.
