September 27, 1954 ~ March 23, 2021

We are the last of our immediate family, Gail Suttie, Howard Delorme, and Bruce Labatiuk, so sad we are to announce the sudden death of our 2nd youngest sibling, Janice Jewell Delorme.

Janice was predeceased by our parents, as well as, siblings Patrick, Linda; brothers Lee, and Gaye.

In addition, Janice’s new found friend, Angie Letendre wrote her sentiments “I had the privilege of knowing Janice for only a short time, but she left an indelible impression on my heart and we became very quick friends. I share the deep faith Janice had, and I look forward to seeing her again in the promised paradise here on earth. (Matthew 6:10) Here she will be young and healthy. She will know what it is like to be truly free – free from cancer, free of worry, free of any anxiety and sadness with wonderful caring friends”

Janice had a very distinctive laugh that often triggered others near her to break into laughter in response. This was due, in part, to her keen sense of humor. She was very engaging person while gregariously cultivating fast friends for life.

Janice had empathy for those in need of assistance in many different ways. Witnessing a pedestrian car accident at age 5 and upon seeing the actions of the ambulance attendants treating and comforting the patient, she was determined to do what those attendants did to ease the pain and anguish of that stricken woman.

Janice, in her second career at 29 years of age set out to fulfill that dream and became the dedicated, compassionate, generous Nursing Aid who loved all  patients given into her charge mainly at Royal Alex hospital in Edmonton. Janice was 66 years of age succumbing very quickly by the menacing covid 19 virus while in hospital care.  

Janice was comforted and soothed by the words of Jesus Christ recorded in the Bible at John 5: 25-28, 29-“Most truly I say to you, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live”….”Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life….”

We will see Janice again in the renewed paradise of God. (Jeremiah 29:11)
