It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our Father, Grandfather and Brother, Tom Janisse in Edmonton, AB on April 9, 2018.
Tom leaves behind his Son Marc, and his wife Lindsey (Calgary, AB) and Daughter Kori, and her husband Taras St.Jean (Beaumont, AB), as well as his cherished Grandchildren Bradley, Emily, Katie and Avery.
Tom will also be missed by his 7 siblings and their families, Patrick Janisse, Angie Bernard, Susan Maziak and Fran Mastromattei (Windsor, ON), Marianne Simpson (Chatham, ON), Teri McInnes (Calgary, AB) and Tina Martinez (Saskatoon, SK) as well as many close friends.
Tom lost his wife, Mady, to cancer in January 2017. Tom and Mady were life partners for 48 years and Tom missed Mady each and every day since her passing.
Tom was born on August 3, 1945 in Windsor ON, to his Father Marc, and Mother Lucie, who predeceased him.
Tom spent his early years in Windsor, ON and moved his family to Edmonton in 1982 where they lived and raised their 2 children. Tom explored a variety of careers in his life, but always returned to accounting and tax services. Much like his Father before him, Tom could always be found repairing things or tinkering in the garage. He will always be remembered for his kindness, patience, easy laughter, and his unique sense of humor. He will be dearly missed.
Tom requested to be cremated.
A Reception and Celebration of Tom’s Life will be held at King Edward Park, Small Hall 8008 – 81 Street NW, Edmonton, AB on Saturday, May 26, from 1:00 – 3:00pm.
