It is with immense sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Janice Parfitt on October 5, in the Palliative Care Unit at the Nanaimo General Hospital.

Jan is survived by her husband David; children Susan and Murray and their partners Yon and Tammy; grandchildren Benjamin, Leif, Madelaine and Thane; sister Dorothy; and many nieces and nephews in Australia and England. She will also be greatly missed by her wonderful friends who are far too numerous to mention here.

A Celebration of Life will be held at St. Philips Anglican Church on Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Parkinson’s Association of Canada or the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
