Warm. Kind. Strong. Mother.
Leader. World-traveller. Lover of champagne, fine wine, handbags and shoes. Tireless list-maker.
Friend to many. Born May 29, 1962, in Port Arthur; died July 8, 2018 in Toronto, aged 56.
Finnish, from Northern Ontario, her roots helped to forge her (sisu) incredible strength of character and adventurous spirit.
A childhood accident first brought her to Toronto where years later, she met and married Jon Town.
Attracted by his joie de vivre and flair for the creative, they shared the same birthday and a beloved daughter, Teija.
Jaana gracefully balanced a successful career in Human Resources with the demands of single motherhood which continued after Jon's death in 2013. Her role as a senior executive in mining enabled her to fulfill her love of travel and instil in Teija the merits of hard work and the benefits of a cosmopolitan lifestyle in Toronto and beyond.
Jaana made friends wherever she went. From the Boardroom to the champagne bar, she worked, she danced, and so importantly she connected. Jaana never forgot a birthday. On time, year after year, a thoughtfully chosen card would arrive in the mail in her signature handwriting, to ever appreciative friends and family.
She was first diagnosed with cancer in March 2015 and following chemotherapy and radiation, her prognosis was initially optimistic.
When it returned in 2016, she fought with strength, courage and determination as we knew Jaana would.
Predeceased by her father, George (Yrjo) and former husband, Jon; she leaves her much loved and cherished daughter, Teija; her mother, Kaisa Harkonen; sisters, Anné Harkonen (Saul), Helena Yokich (Ned); and brother, Eric (Donna); as well as nieces and nephews.
Grateful thanks to Dr. M. Butler, the gynaecological oncology team at Princess Margaret, Dr. J. Ailon and the palliative care staff at Bridgepoint and for the kindnesses shown by other attending professionals.
A private interment is planned.
At Jaana's request, donations to SARRC (Sisters Against Rare Cervical Cancers) would be appreciated. Please visit www. rarecervicalcancers.org or P.O Box 227, Wallburg, NC, USA, 27373.

With sadness we announce that Grant Reuber passed away surrounded by family on July 7, 2018 in his 91st year. Predeceased by his cherished wife, Peggy; and son-in-law, Ian Macleod; he is survived by his children, Becky, Barbara (Todd Howell) and Mary (Matthew Bryson); and his beloved grandchildren, Julia (Atif), Allison (Ian), Anna (Abhishek), Jocelyn (Matthew), Fiona (David), and Henry. Greatly missed and fondly remembered by Dee Chenier and his other close friends.
From his humble beginnings on a farm in Mildmay, Ontario, Grant found his home in the field of economics where he made important contributions to academia, industry and public service. At the University of Western Ontario (now Western University), he chaired the Economics Department, was the first dean of the Faculty of Social Science, Vice-President (Academic) and Provost, and then Chancellor. He was Chairman of the Ontario Economic Council, Deputy Minister of Finance, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Bank of Montreal, and Chairman of the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation. For his many contributions to Canada, he was made an officer of the Order of Canada and a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.
Grant travelled widely and particularly enjoyed the south of France.
He was an avid collector of art and wine, played a mean game of tennis into his eighties, and enjoyed evenings at the opera and Tafelmusik.
He loved nothing more than to host his growing family at the York Club where he often marvelled at how two only children could have produced such a clan. He will be deeply missed and remembered with much love.
The family is grateful for the devoted care that Zelia DeMedeiros provided to Grant and Peggy.
