PEARCE, Janet (Jenny) McDougall
Left us peacefully on Tuesday, July 17, 2012. Although her many friends and relatives will miss her, we take comfort in knowing she is at peace. She will be dearly missed by her family; children Sarah (Jeff) Murphy Howard, Ben (Elizabeth) Murphy and Caitlin (Matt) Baynton, brother Robert Pearce and grandchildren Avia and Hallae. Jenny was born in Edmonton on October 4th, 1948 to Gordon and Betty Pearce. Raised in Waterloo, Ontario she graduated from the University of Waterloo and shortly there after moved to Toronto before settling in Hamilton in 1977. Jenny was an active member of her community, and was particularly fond of the local arts. Throughout her life she was involved with Theater Aquarius, the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra and the Junior League. Jenny was an accomplished concert pianist and her other passions included spending time with her family and friends, cooking and enjoying the outdoors. There will be a funeral service at Christ's Church Cathedral (252 James St. North, Hamilton) on Monday, July 23, at 11:00 a.m. followed by a reception at the Art Gallery of Hamilton. In lieu of flowers, the family would welcome a donation to St. Peter's Hospital Foundation or Christ's Church Cathedral.
