JANET HONE October 11, 1948 August 5, 2004 - Jan died peacefully at home in Regina on Thursday, August 5, 2004 at the age of 55. She died as she wished, pain free and at home with her family around her. In her last months she shared her insights into life and relationships with all those who helped care for her. We have all been blessed by her friendship, honesty, courage, intelligence and quirky sense of humour. Jan was an active and passionate devotee of living life in the first person. If she believed in a cause, she put her heart, hands and voice to work for it, and inspired others to do the same. She sat on committees, organized demonstrations and phoned city councillors: she took responsibility and she got things done. Her long and joyful career at Regina Public Library saw her share of talents with almost every unit in the library at one time or another, including Central Children's and the Central Reference Desk, but she always seemed to be drawn back to the cheerful pandemonium and strong community roots of the branch libraries. A deep love and respect for the creative process ran strong in Jan's blood. She painted, drew, made pottery and puppets, created paper maché masks and watercolours. Her family and friends treasure the personal items she has left them. She also collected whimsical earring-sculptures (which she took pleasure in finding new homes for on the ears of her friends in the weeks before her death). Jan loved the outdoors. With her family and friends she cycled, canoed, kayaked, sailed, cross-country skied, walked, hiked and went camping. She loved to travel (Europe with her parents and brother and later with her future husband, Portugal with her husband and children, the Gulf Islands with her brother, Sedona with Rosemary and Adrian, and the Churchill River with Bill and Dale, to name but a few). However, in the last months of her life she found incalculable joy in the simple pleasure of sitting in her back yard, enjoying the space that the family created together. As well, she took long rolls in her wheelchair throughout the Cathedral area enjoying the garden flowers. Jan is survived by her husband Jim Hall, children: Will Hall and Brenna (Ryan) Ackerman; and her darling grandson, Ethan, her parents Beth and Mac, and her brother Dave (Carol Baert). Jan and Jim celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary on July 14. Her family would like to thank all the many caregivers and friends who supported Jan and her family over the past year with their loving care, prayers, thoughts, cards, letters, emails and gifts of baking and meals, including the RPL "casserole brigade" and the Unitarian Fellowship. They would also like to thank the Home Health Aides and nurses and physicians of the Palliative Care Unit of the Regina Health District, the nurses and physicians of the Regina General Hospital and the Allan Blair Cancer Centre, and her family physician Dr. Sharron Thackeray. Cremation will take place prior to the MEMORIAL SERVICE that will take place at Regina Funeral Home on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 7:00 p.m. with a reception to follow. Interment will be at a later date in the fall. If friends so desire memorial tributes may be made to the Unitarian Fellowship of Regina, Box 1591, Regina, SK, S4P 3C4 or a CUPE scholarship to be established at Jan's request. Friends attending the service are encouraged to bring garden flowers (in vases) as a tribute to Jan. Arrangements are entrusted to Regina Funeral Home (306) 789-8850.
