FIDLER, JANICE ETHEL
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.
