Janis Lee Zanier (nee Beaudry)

The family of Janis Lee Zanier sadly announce her passing on November 27th, 2014. She was born in Rossland on October 7, 1959, the fourth child of George and Annie Beaudry.

She is lovingly remembered and cherished by her husband Pat, daughters Lauren (Albert Benson), Taylor and Jordan, her son Matthew; Janis’s sisters Carol Bacon and Patti (Larry) Turko, brother Garry (Jennifer) Beaudry; parents-in-law Reno and Loretta Zanier, brothers-in-law Barry (Aileen) and Michael (Maria) Zanier, sister-in-law Lynne (Bevan) Blatchford and numerous nieces and nephews.

Janis was predeceased by her parents George and Annie, sister Sharon Hammond, brother in-law Ted Hammond, nephew Kenny Hammond, and niece Kailee Zanier.

Janis married Pat in 1985 and moved to Rossland where they raised their four children. Janis was a natural caregiver, something that was apparent in all aspects of her life. Fittingly, after raising her own family, she opened a home daycare where she continued her passion for nurturing children.

Janis enjoyed cooking, gardening, and being outdoors with her dogs. She loved to spend time with family and friends at Christina Lake, and looked forward to her yearly travels to Mexico and Palm Desert.

Janis will be remembered for her shining smile, nurturing presence, and gentle spirit. She will be greatly missed.

A Celebration of Janis’s life will be held at the Rossland Secondary School gymnasium, on Saturday, December 6th, 2014 at 11:00 am with Gwen Ziprick officiating.

As an expression of sympathy, donations in Janis’s name may be made to the Trail SPCA, 7700 3B Hwy, Trail, BC V1R 4X2.
