Obituary: Janet Jane Ferguson (Oct 21, 1940 ~ Mar 19, 2023)



“Think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched. For nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much”.

With great sorrow, the family of Janet Ferguson wish to announce her passing in the Fort St. John Hospital on March 19, 2023 after a lengthy illness.

Janet will be sadly missed by her husband Tom Ferguson, son Rod Tompkins, daughter Marlene Tompkins (Dean Donnelly), daughter Marilyn Israel (Wade Israel), grandsons Ethan and Hayden Donnelly, as well as granddaughter Alex Israel.

Janet was predeceased by her parents Bert and Violet Wilson and her son Rocky Tompkins.

As a family, we wish to convey our sincerest thanks to Dr. Boyer (Janet’s family doctor), as well as to Dr. Loomes and all of the nursing and care giving staff at the Fort St. John Hospital. The kindness and professionalism shown to Janet during her short stay there was and is very much appreciated.

Janet was laid to rest in the Rose Prairie Cemetary on March 24, followed by a lovely funeral service at Hamre’s Funeral Chapel. Thank you to Gord Klassen for officiating, Tom Cole for leading us in singing the three hymns that Janet had loved so much, as well as to Gail Pugh and her sisters for providing lunch afterwards. I would also like to thank Dean Donnelly for making the beautiful video tribute to Janet.

Rest in peace Janet.
