Obituary for Janice Elizabeth Annable (McColl)

Jan passed away in West Vancouver surrounded by the love of her family. Predeceased by her husband of 65 years, Robert, she is survived by her four children: Blake, Tanyss, Peter and Mark and their families including 11 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Jan grew up in Iroquois, Ontario and enjoyed an idyllic childhood along the St. Lawrence River with her tight knit, extended Caldwell family. She loved her time at Branksome Hall School in Toronto, spending summers on their hobby farm, driving the tractor, boating and playing golf on their one-hole course! Jan headed west to study social work at UBC where she joined Gamma Phi Beta sorority and fell in love with Bob who had chosen her to be his secretary for the upcoming "Mardi Gras Charity Ball.’ With her radiant red hair and white strapless gown, Mom was elected Queen of the Mardi Gras. A lifelong athlete, she played tennis at Hollyburn CC and skied at Whistler, but her greatest sporting passion was for golf. She joined Capilano Golf Club in 1954 which became her "second home" and where she could pursue her love of golf and bridge. Jan enjoyed family time at Buccaneer Bay, Whistler, Penask Lake and many ski holidays. She will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched. A private family gathering will be held at a later date.
