In loving memory ~
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and wife, Jane Parent. Jane passed away on Sunday, October 16, 2022, at the age of 87.
Jane was predeceased by her parents, father Bill and mother Kathleen. She leaves behind her husband Paul Parent, daughters Carolyn Latzen (nee Clark), Janice Smith (nee Clark), and her three grandchildren.
Born May 29, 1935, in Premier Mine BC, Jane grew up in North Vancouver and graduated from North Vancouver High School. She earned a diploma in teaching through the Provincial Normal School program in the mid 1950s later earning a Bachelor of Education from UBC in 1968. She moved to the South Surrey White Rock area as a young wife and mother in 1962 and spent many years as a primary school teacher, working first in the Surrey School District and later in Delta, retiring in 1992.
Jane loved life and was most happy spending time with family and friends. Her passions included reading, listening to music, and helping out with her grandkids. She was a kind and generous person with a beautiful smile, and she will be greatly missed.
We would like to thank Dr. Griffiths, Dr. Kanungo and caregiver Donna McKinley for the kind and loving care they provided to Jane in the last few years of her life.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, November 18 at 2:00PM at Victory Memorial Park 14831 28 Avenue, Surrey. In lieu of flowers, donations can made be to Parkinson Canada, BC Children’s Hospital or the BC SPCA.
