It is with great sadness that the family of Janie (Helen) Seaby announces her peaceful passing on November 16, 2015. Janie passed away at Kootenay Lake General Hospital at age 96 with her loving family at her side.

The love of her life Jesse predeceased her in 1986. Her sisters Gertie, Jill, Biddy & Joan as well as her brothers Elden, Sonny, Buster and Arthur also predeceased Janie.

Janie is survived by her 4 children Judy (Jake) Thiessen, Carolyn (George) Zabawa, Ross (Esther) Seaby, & Doug Seaby, .

Grandchildren – Duane, Dori-Lynn (Harley), Dawn (Doug), Kathy-Jean (Laurent), Joe (Carola), Carol-Anne (Richard), David, Diane (John), Lyle (Mary) & Leah (Ryan).

Janie is lovingly remembered by her sister Gladys Redman, brother Don (Diane), brother-in-law Don and sister-in-law Tiny and many many nieces and nephews.

Mom was born in Nelson on July 29, 1919.  She and Dad bought the original family home a few years after they were married and she has lived there ever since, 90+ years.  Mom will always be remembered as “The Candy Lady”, walking downtown and visiting friends handing out candy. Her evening walks were 4 times around the block and even strangers got a hello, a smile and some candy.  Mom had a special place in her heart for everyone

We will greatly miss you Mom and you will remain forever in our hearts.

The family would like to thank the Nelson Home Support for many years assisting Mom in her home, the 3rd floor nursing staff, and all her neighbours and friends.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the MS Society – West Kootenay Chapter or a charity of your choice.
