(nee Gibson)


It is with great sadness that

we announce the passing

of Janice Fidler. Janice was born January 23, 1943 in

Auckland, New Zealand and passed away peacefully at

Hospice House in Kelowna

on May 25, 2014.

She is survived by her

husband and dear friend

Grant, her children Lisa

Chapman,  Brian Fidler

(Emily Woodruffe), her

grandchildren Riley and

Megan Chapman and Charlie and Jacob Fidler.  Also,

she leaves behind many loving sister-in-laws and

brother-in-laws (Glenn and Mary Fidler, Jim and Brenda

Fidler, Ted and Janis Rodonets) and cousins

in Canada and Australia. She was the only child

of Ken and Doris Gibson. They moved from

New Zealand to Powell River Canada in 1947 where

Janice grew up.  She became a teacher and taught

school in Lillooet and Burnaby.  She married Grant Fidler

on July 30th, 1966.  They moved to Kelowna in 1972. 

She spent many years with the Girl Guides of Canada

as a leader, Commissioner, Trefoil Guild member

and Archivist. Janice was a great communicator and

letter writer.  Throughout her life she kept those she

cared about close to her through handwritten letters

and cards.  She was the family historian, with every

birthday, anniversary, important date and

humorous family story right at her fingertips. 

She enjoyed camping, bowling, traveling and

reading but, most of all, she loved being with her

family. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the

Kidney Society of B.C. or the Central

Okanagan Hospice Association.

A memorial service will be held at Everden Rust

on Saturday May 31, 2014 at 1pm.
