April 10, 1944 – June 3, 2021
It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Janet Warden, beloved wife of Ian Warden, on June 3, 2021.
Janet is survived by her husband of 57 years, Ian; sister Kathleen Zimmerman (Alex); brother Graham Collins (Gloria); niece Carla; and nephews, Robert and Kevin and their families. She is predeceased by her parents, Nesta and Roy Collins.
Janet was born in London, England in 1944 in the midst of the Second World War. She and her mother sailed from England to Halifax, Nova Scotia in January 1945 and were later joined by her father. Janet was raised in Charleswood and attended Beaumont School and Charleswood Collegiate. She met Ian after high school, and they were married on May 30, 1964. They started married life in an apartment on River Avenue and later returned to Charleswood where they lived for many years. Janet and Ian travelled extensively throughout Canada and the United States in their motor home for holidays, making many new friends in both countries. Janet had a long career in the accounting department at Motor Coach Industries. Retirement evolved into staying closer to home, enjoying and maintaining their immaculate yard. Janet was also an avid reader and will always be remembered as a devoted wife and a kind and caring person.
In keeping with Janet’s wishes, cremation has taken place and no funeral service will be held. A celebration of her life may be held when it is possible to gather. In the meantime, Janet’s family kindly requests that her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by sharing photos and/or sharing your own memories and stories using the comment section on this page.
If friends desire, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to one’s favourite charity.
