Obituary of Janice Cecille JENUTH (nee Renaud)
July 11, 1953 – July 25, 2020
Our beautiful and beloved wife, mother, daughter and sister died suddenly in Foothills Hospital on Saturday, July 25, 2020 leaving us with a gaping hole in our hearts forever.
Janice will be lovingly remembered and profoundly missed by her husband Stephen, son Justin, mother Florence Renaud, sisters, Carole Brost, Cathie Hansen (Wilf), Michelle Hofoss (Dan) and brother Eugene Renaud; as well as the rest of her family and friends.
Janice was loving and caring, generous and full of tremendous life. She was an amazing elementary school teacher who instilled a love of music in her students teaching instruments and choir and preparing concerts and celebrations as well as teaching the regular curriculum. She played the piano and the organ and sang in the Calgary Austrian Choir Heimatecho.
She graced her home with lovely piano music, something treasured by her husband Stephen and son Justin and which they will sadly never hear again.
Janice was a talented watercolor artist and an intuitive writer and poet. She had a keen eye for nature, especially enjoying bird watching. She cared for the robins which nested under her back deck, not even allowing Stephen to put the new barbeque on it while they were nesting.
Seventeen years ago, Janice gave her love to a self-described “sad and lonely lawyer” and married Stephen. She assisted him when he ran for office as a Liberal and was horrified when either a sign was not placed perpendicular to the ground or someone vandalized one of them. As the long-suffering wife of a lawyer who dabbled in criminal law, Janice ensured that every day at the office and in court, Stephen was properly attired with matching socks and polished shoes.
Janice was a devoted mother to her son Justin who will forever miss her companionship, guidance and love. The two of them were an inseparable team. She was with him every day providing support and advice.
In the last few years Stephen and Janice enjoyed Caribbean cruises and would have been cruising again this spring if Covid had not interfered robbing her and Stephen of those adventures.
Janice tested negative for Covid but tragically the shut down of essential services like routine medicals and blood tests may have resulted in the loss of someone who made our world a brighter and more beautiful place.
Prayers will be celebrated on Monday, August 3, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. followed by the Funeral Mass on Tuesday, August 4, 2020 at 11:00 a.m., both at St Luke Catholic Church, 1566 Northmount Drive NW, Calgary, Alberta, T2L 0G6. Prayers and Mass will be Covid compliant. Burial will follow at the St. Joseph Section of Queen's Park Cemetery.
