April 13, 1933 - February 15, 2018
Janet Eleanor Barwise passed with peace and grace on Thursday, February 15, 2018, at Beach Grove Home, with her family and staff members by her side. She was the devoted wife of Bob Barwise for 66 years; loving mother of Gail Barwise, Joanne Barwise (Earl Parrish), Robin Jenkins (Doug), and the late John (Tarah). Proud grandmother of Peter and Mary Ellen Barwise, Alex and Taylor Parrish, Alison (Mark) and Lindsay Jenkins, the late Jon Eric and Evan Barwise; and great-grandmother to Shelby. She is survived by one sister, Ann Legere of Campbellton, NB and was predeceased by her brothers Leon, Buddy and Henry, and sisters Marguerite, Louise, Alice, and Rita.
Never one to shy away from a challenge, Janet filled her 84 years with a vitality that shone through her many creative endeavours. She was a musician, Ham radio operator, pilot, gold medal senior swimmer, artist, and quilter, to name just a few of her passions.
