JANUARY 11, 1949 –

AUGUST 8, 2010

It is with the deepest sorrow and sadness that the family of Jan Meikle, our sister, daughter, mother, grandmother and aunt, announces her sudden passing on August 8th, 2010, at the age of 61 at her home in North Vancouver. Jan grew up in Nanaimo, BC, graduating from Nanaimo Senior Secondary School in 1966. Later, in 1990, Jan went to Capilano College, taking the two year paralegal program, graduating With Honours, achieving Dean’s List in each of the 4 semesters, while also being honoured as the Class Valedictorian. Jan is survived by her mother, Muriel, her brother, Kevin and his wife June, her children, Ja Lynn (and her husband Tim), Angela and Bruce, her grandchildren, Payton Muriel and Kianna Marie, her niece Alana and her Aunt Dolly. Particular thanks goes to Dr. John Corey, of Caulfield Village Medical Clinic, and the staff at Lions Gate General Hospital for their compassionate care during Jan’s recent illnesses. Also, to Randall Godden and Mae’s Graces (a group of Nanaimo “girls” who have been her friends for over fifty years ) for their unwavering friendship and support for Jan during difficult stretches in Jan’s life. Friends and family are invited to a memorial service to celebrate her life, which will be held Wednesday, August 18th, 2010 at 2pm at First Memorial Boal Chapel, 1505 Lillooet Road, North Vancouver, BC. A reception will follow immediately. A further service will be held Friday, August 20th, 2010 at 2pm at Brechin United Church in the Fellowship Hall at 1998 Estevan Road, Nanaimo BC. Additional information can be obtained by emailing Kevin Meikle at kevin.meikle@ca.
