Peart, Janet

Janet Maureen Peart (nee Luff), of Durham, passed away at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre, Durham on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 in her 79th year. Beloved wife of Wayne Peart for 60 years. Loving mother of Bev Peart of Regina and his wife Liz, Bonnie Gardiner and her husband Peter Reid of Chatsworth, and Tim Peart of Cambridge. Cherished Nana of Tiffany Gardiner and her husband Rob Otway of St. Catharines, Abby Gardiner and her husband Matt Wylie of Breslau, and Mitch Peart and his wife Julia of Meaford. Granana of Ethan, Addison, Emmett, Sophia, Sierra, Lily and Gibson. Dear sister of John Luff and his wife Pauline, Lesley Luff, and Peter Luff and his wife Susan. Sister-in-law of Lorna and Harvey Ellis, and Ross and Brenda Peart. Predeceased by her brother Mike Luff and his late wife Pat.

Born in Bournemouth, England, Janet (who was also affectionately known as "Moley"), immigrated to Canada at the age of 12. Some would remember her from her days as clerk at Holliday's Pharmacy in Durham, and later at "The Big Chair" Garden Centre in Varney. She had a passion for flowers and her award-winning extensive gardens at their former property on the Baseline in Bentinck. Over the years she also, single-handedly, kept the Javex Bleach Company afloat. She enjoyed cooking, baking and loving her family, grands and great-grands and always enjoyed spending time with her Monday morning coffee club friends. We are all going to get a lot thinner as one never left her home without a little something-something in a container. Your suffering is over Moley, may you rest in well-deserved peace.


Friends may call at the McCulloch-Watson Funeral Home, Durham on Wednesday, May 1st from 2 - 4 and 7 – 9 p.m.
