Jan was a Beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, counselor, teacher and student. She clearly held the Space of Sacred Possibility for Many. Always Kind, Joy-ful, Nurturing, Wise, Fun and Loving. Jan Passed away suddenly on Thursday January 26th, at 52 years of age.
Jan was born in Edmonton, Alberta on
August 22, 1959 the first born of Ruth and
Jack King. Degrees in the Arts and Occupational Therapy led her to career in counseling and life long learning in wellness. Jan always made time for whoever sought her counsel, offering Solace as needed. Jan’s’ practice was inclusive of her growing Spirituality, and reflected her deep respect for things such as: the natural world, the Season’s and their gifts, the Elements, their Totems and respective Medicines. She was filled with gratitude for an adoring husband (Larry) and cherished her son (Ben).
Jan’s Spirit now soars high. She rests amongst the Stars. May the strong Glow of her Spirit continue to shine in all our Hearts forevermore. May she Rest in deep, abiding natural peace, wherever she chooses to Dwell.
The family would like to express heartfelt thanks to everyone for your thoughts, prayers, kind words, and support; and special thanks to Heather Nichol for taking care of a house full of grieving family and friends, to Anni Mühlegg and Carina Costom for the beautiful blessing, and to Chris MacPherson and the Castlegar Ladies’ Curling Club for catering the service.
Celebration of Life was held on February 3rd, 2012.
Jan you left too soon-
Still round the corner there may wait, a new road
or a secret gate. – J.R.R. Tolkein
