LEWIS, Janet Marguerite (January 21, 1958 – November 7, 2020) It is with extreme sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of our dearest sister and beautiful soul Janet Lewis, after a very courageous journey with cancer, at the age of 62. She will be greeted in heaven by our dad Brendan Lewis (2019) and our baby sister Maria Lewis-Downey (2020). Leaving to mourn is the joy of her life, her nephew Ryan, her mother Marie, her siblings Brendan (Dolores), Gerard (Ros), Andy (Lena), Joe, John and Mary Ann (Roger) Grimes; nieces and nephews Danielle (Matt), Brad (Jessica and children Lydia and Lennon), Brendan, Chris, Marc (Carla), Leanna (Kyle), Michael and Andrew. Her fur babies Daisy, Sheba, Zoey, Puss and Rosie. A special thank you to Janet’s close friends Barbara Pomeroy, Marilyn Tuff and Carol Ann O’Brien for your years of love, support, and friendship. You helped Janet so much during her struggle with this terrible disease. She was blessed to have you in her life. Also, a special thank you to the doctors and nurses on 4 North A and Ambulatory Treatment Unit, especially Dr Kristy Tompkins, for your exceptional care and compassion during Janet’s appointments and stay at the Health Sciences Centre.
