Janice Mary Alice ParisIt is with heavy hearts and cherished memories that we announce the passing of Janice Mary Alice Paris on April 13, 2020. She passed peacefully with her family by her side, at her favourite place; her home on Stoney Lake after a short but courageous battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). 

Jan was born in Peterborough and was the cherished wife for 50 years of William (Bill) Paris, Past President of Boating Ontario, and beloved mother of Tracey, Julie (Andrew) and Deborah (Joseph).  Jan is the daughter of the late Douglas and Marjorie Barringer, sister to Gerald (Elaine) and the late George (Barb) Barringer.   She will be lovingly remembered as Gam Gam to her three beautiful grandchildren, Avery, Ethan and Kensington.  She leaves a legacy of kindness and generosity, a passion for family and a love for painting and sunsets.  

A special thank you to the team at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto and a heartfelt thanks to the Palliative Care and Cancer Care Doctors and staff at Peterborough Regional Health Centre.  

In keeping with Janice’s wishes, cremation will take place. Family and friends will be invited to a celebration of life to be held at Little Lake Cemetery and Highland Park Funeral Centre when a date can be set in the future. 

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation www.thepmcf.ca 610 University Avenue, Toronto, ON M5G 2M9 416-946-6560 or Hospice Peterborough (325 London St., Peterborough, ON, K9H 2Z5, www.hospicepeterborough.org, 705-742 4042).

STOP INVASIVE SPECIES SPREAD - SEE HOW EASILY YOU CAN “CLEAN, DRAIN, DRY” YOUR WAKEBOAT

 

Clean, Drain, DryFor owners of all types of boats that are trailered from one lake to another within Canada, (and perhaps to waters in the USA when the borders open again) please take the steps to clean, drain and dry your boat and trailer to help stop the spread of aquatic invasive species. If you plan to venture into the USA with your boat and trailer, you may be required to follow specific cleaning protocols.

We should always do this here in Canada as well, even if there are no specific laws requiring it.
