With heavy hearts, the family announces the passing of Janice Dier on September 5, 2021 in her 88th year. Beloved spouse of Wayne for 61 years. She was predeceased by her son Gregory and parents Colin and Ellen Hardy (nee Sinclair). Cherished grandmother to Ashley (Nathan McDonald) and Krysten O’Reilly and great-grandmother to Everly, Gregory, Charlotte, Cody, and Myles. She will be lovingly remembered by her surviving siblings Dorothy Coull (Bogue), Helen McLellan (late George) and James Hardy (Eileen), as well as many nieces and nephews.
Janice spent her childhood in New Richmond, Quebec and moved to Ontario in order to pursue a career in teaching. It was while she was in Ontario that she met her future husband Wayne, while teaching in Wawa. A move from Wawa took them to Ottawa and then eventually settling in Smiths Falls, where she raised her family and continued her career in education.
Janice adored her grandchildren and relished spending time with them in her home on the Mississippi lake. She looked forward to Saturday night Euchre games with friends, weekend yard sales and enjoyed outdoor activities that entailed boating and snowmobiling. Her love of travel took her to many destinations around the world.
A special thanks to Ashley, Nathan and Sandra for providing such wonderful care to Janice in the final years of her life. As per Janice’s wishes, a celebration of her life will be held at a later date. If desired, a memorial contribution to the Heart & Stroke Foundation would be most appreciated
