Janette Alma Thompson (née Lowry) of Huron Township passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 17, 2021, in her 77th year at hospice in Tiverton. Beloved wife of Murray Thompson.

Missed by siblings Marlene, David (Shirley), Lynn (Donna), Wayne (Patt), Carl, Elliot (Ellen), and Corinne (Gene). Predeceased by brother Perrin Lowry and his wife Marion, brother-in-law Elmer MacKenzie, and sister-in-law Gayle Lowry. Others who will miss her warm personality, great meals and hospitality are many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and neighbours.

Janette grew up in Huron township with a huge family. She has memories of many people around the table and had a real fondness for animals including her pony Champ. She went to Laugheed School of Business in Kitchener, and following married Murray in 1966, where they started their life together on the 2nd Conc. of Huron Twp., later settling in Pine River where they raised their family and farmed for close to 50 years. Janette was a friendly face at Ripley Superior for many years before working at Kincardine Hospital until her retirement. Janette was known for her hospitable personality, often inviting more than initially planned to join around the table, and pulling it off with ease. She had a way of making everyone feel welcome in her presence. She was an incredible cook and was fondly remembered for her warm chocolate chip cookies, apple pies, tarts, canned peaches, and applesauce. She held on to her sense of humour and strong faith until her final moments. She loved walking on the beach, and sunsets were her favourite. She made the world a better place for those that knew her, and for that she will be remembered.
