Janice Ann Hughes
November 11, 1954 – March 7, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Janice Ann Hughes (née Dines) on March 7, 2021 at the age of 66. She was the beloved wife of Peter, mother of Melissa and Michael, sister of Jim (Helene), and aunt to Barbie and Shona. She is predeceased by her parents, Archie and Florence. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her, including her lifelong friend Linnea Cound (Frank), as well as her many friends, extended family, and her colleagues at RE/MAX Chay in Innisfil.

Janice was born in Sudbury, Ontario and lived her childhood in the nearby railway town of Capreol. She maintained her small-town warmth and the mentality of helping others in need throughout her life – acts that were deeply appreciated by those who knew her.

Janice struck out as an adventurous and ambitious young woman to live in Vancouver, Toronto, and then Windsor, where her love of fashion led her to a career with women’s clothing chain Suzy Shier. She wove her own unique thread of creativity through her life, whether she was designing stunning floral arrangements, handmade gifts for her colleagues, or helping clients flawlessly stage their houses. As a real estate agent, she found and excelled in a career that fit her personality — outgoing, bubbly, loving to meet new people and help them. She looked after her family with meticulous care, especially through her great flair for cooking, always remembering to make a special dish of cooked carrots for her “granddog,” Turbo.

Jan will be remembered for her immense efforts to rise above the challenges life presented her, and do her utmost to enrich the lives of others. Her impact will not be forgotten; her spirit will live on in her community and in the many fortunate among us who were affected profoundly by her love.

Visitation will be held at Innisfil Funeral Home on Friday, March 12 from 2-5pm and 6-9pm; due to restrictions surrounding COVID-19, bookings are to be made through the Innisfil Funeral Home website. A private funeral mass will be held for family.
