JANET IZARD (nee HICKS), 1949 – 2014:
On 6 May 2014, Janet Izard, passed away peacefully at Toronto General Hospital with her family present. For 4 months, she had valiantly battled infections following her liver transplant. We are very grateful to the dedication & care of the ICU staff at TGH throughout her time there. Jan is survived by her husband, John Izard, and two sons, Roger (Sabrina) and Douglas (Clare) and four grandchildren (Luke, Nathan, Kara and Joshua). She is also survived by her brother, Roger (Linda) Hicks and her nephew Bruce Hicks and her niece, Emily (Scott) Lindsay. She was born in Princeton, B.C. and graduated from UBC with a teaching degree. Her parents were Dr. Al Hicks and Eleanor Hicks. Jan’s focus was to help others. She was “born with her hand up” and actively volunteered for many groups during her 25 years in Brampton Ontario. She was a passionate gardener, golfer and dog lover. Donations can be made in her name to “Crohn’s & Colitis Canada” and we would like everyone to consider registering to become an organ donor to save others. A “Celebration of Life” Service was held for Jan on Saturday, 17 May, at 2:00 pm at St. Paul’s United Church in Brampton, ON. Our family is extremely grateful to the support we received from so many people during her illness.
