It is with profound sadness that the family of Janice Elaine Ferdinand of Sackville, NB,  announce her unexpected passing on January 7, 2023 at the age of 69.  Jan was the daughter of the late Willis and Frances (Langille) Ferdinand. 

Jan was a lifelong employee of the Royal Bank and retired as manager in Guysborough, NS.  Despite being a proud Nova Scotianer, upon retirement she moved to Sackville, NB, where she became an active member of the Main Street Baptist Church.  Her keen interest in quilting developed during retirement and resulted in many beautiful works of art.  Jan was a lover of animals and could never pass by a dog or cat without stopping to make friends.

Jan moved many times during her RBC career and developed wonderful friendships in each community.

The pride and joy of her life was her loving son, Craig Ferdinand (Jesykah Kelly) of Centreville, NS, who will miss her dearly.

Also left to mourn her passing are sisters, Nancy (Raymond) LeBlanc, Moncton, and Kathryn (Ivan) Illsley, Sackville, and brothers, Bob (Naomi) Ferdinand, Amherst, Glenn (Heather) Ferdinand, Upper Vaughn, NS, Stephen (Joanne) Ferdinand, Wentworth, NS, George (Judy) Ferdinand, Oxford Junction, NS, and Greg (Sandi) Bell, Bible Hill, NS.  In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her sister and sister-in-law Patricia Ferdinand and Marjorie Bendell.

Jan is also survived by several aunts and uncles, numerous cousins and many nieces and nephews.

Arrangements are under the care and guidance of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville, NB (506-364-1300).  Honouring Jan's wishes, cremation has taken place.  Family and friends are invited to a time of visitation at the Main Street Baptist Church, Sackville on Thursday, January 12, 2023 from 1 pm until the time of the funeral service at 2 pm.  Pastor Andrew Swanson presiding.  Interment will be held in the Eagle Hill Cemetery, Westchester, NS, in the spring.

Memorial donations may be made to Main Street Baptist Church or to a charity of your choice.
