JACOBS, Janice Claire (Ecker)

August 10, 1952 – January 22, 2015

Born in Porcupine Plain, Saskatchewan, she is predeceased by Jeanette Hawke (mother) & Clarence Ecker (father). She is survived by her husband Martin; sister Doreen (Claude); brothers Ken (Trudy) and Ron (Margaret); as well as nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews. Jan loved her work in the insurance industry. She worked in Prince George, Calgary and Vancouver in various roles but was most accomplished in her role as an underwriter and in her supervisory role. Jan was passionate about her faith and she was passionate about serving in the children’s ministries at her church, and she had a tremendous impact on young lives simply by listening and encouraging them. She loved and was devoted to her family. Jan cared for animals of all kinds, but was without question a dog person. She at one time was a breeder of Irish Setters, but will always be remembered as being the owner of her beloved pet Cleo with whom she spent hours walking the local dikes especially in the last four years after her cancer had returned.
