Oct. 02, 1934 – April 15, 2015
With great sadness our family regrets to announce the passing of Peter Janzen. He died peacefully on the morning of April 15, 2015. He leaves to mourn his loving wife of 56 years Maria, his brother Hank (Lorrie) and 5 daughters; Monika (Ross), Liz, Lili, Marlene (Ray) and Alice. Peter will be missed by his 7 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and many friends.
Peter met Maria in 1955 and then made his journey to Vancouver, BC. Maria soon joined him there and they married on March 14, 1959. It was in Vancouver that Peter started his construction company, “Safeway Construction Ltd”, as well as his family of 5 girls. In 1972 he uprooted this family and moved to 100 Mile House. His business thrived while he managed to build many houses locally as well as the Seniors Housing Complex in town. Peter built a beautiful cabin of their own on Hot Fish Lake where he spent many hours fishing and enjoying the peaceful outdoors.
He will be sadly missed; however, forever loved and remembered by family and friends. Maria and her family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Nicholson and the wonderful staff of Fischer Place for the loving care that Peter received during his stay with them.
A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, April 24, 2015 at 2 p.m. at 100 Mile Funeral Service Ltd. with pastor Gary Forsyth officiating. A burial at the 100 Mile Cemetery will follow the Funeral Service and there will be a reception back at the Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Peter’s memory to a charity of your choice.
