It is with deep sadness and sorrow our family announces the quiet passing of
Janet Tait at Falconbridge Extendicare on the evening of June 5 2021.
Born February 1, 1925 in Stirling, Scotland. Janet was the youngest and last survivor of 12 siblings. She married John Gardner Tait (predeceased May 6, 1980) in Stirling on August 4 1950. Together they would immigrate to Canada in 1956; bringing their 2 young daughters Maryrose and Jane (Brent Lanktree). They would settle in Garson, ON and later expand the family to include Margaret, John (Patricia Montpellier) and Helen (Robin Billings). Janet leaves behind 6 grandchildren, 4 great-grandsons and numerous nieces and nephews in various parts of the world.
Janet worked for the Sudbury Board of Education for numerous years and retired
in 1990. She was a proud member of the Catholic Women's League at St John the
Evangelist Church in Garson for over 60 years and a lifetime member of the
Nickel Centre Seniors.
Janet was a perfectionist when it came to her knitting which was a major part
of her life and work ethic. She later in life became an avid curler and bowler;
accumulating many awards. She also enjoyed playing a fair game of cards.
The last few years became hard and difficult on Janet and unfortunately required
her to retire to Falconbridge Extendicare. Here the angels disguised as nurses, RPNs,
PSWs, Activity artists and dozens of others would fall in love with her; each in their
own way. The family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to each of them.
Following cremation, the family will arrange a religious ceremony at a later date when it is safe to gather and celebrate her life. In lieu of cards and flowers donations can be made to the Falconbridge Extendicare Activity Department in memory of Janet.
