Peacefully at LHSC – Victoria Hospital on Monday, April 6, 2020 of London and formerly of Granton at the age of 67.  Beloved wife of Brad Finan for 44 years.  Cherished mother of Allison Finan of London and the late Alicia Finan (2014).  Dear sister and sister-in-law of Mary and Bill Guise of Hamilton, Elizabeth Job of Hamilton, Max and Janet Marechaux of Toronto, Hannes and Norma Marechaux of Calgary, Alberta, Ottis and Toni Marechaux of Washington, D.C., Sabine Marechaux (Daniel Chiriotti) of Geneva, Switzerland, John and Martha Finan of London, and Brenda and Dan Singer of Tuscon, Arizona.  Fondly remembered by several nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews.  Predeceased by her parents Wilbert Job and Joan Marechaux (Job). 

A private family service will be held at the Community Bible Church, Lucan on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at 11 AM with Pastor Byron Hand and Pastor Doug Loveday officiating.

Haskett Funeral Home, LUCAN (519-227-4211) entrusted with arrangements. 

Jane was a nurse during her working career. After graduating from La Salle Secondary High School in Sudbury she trained at Women’s College Hospital in Toronto. She worked at Toronto General Hospital where she occasionally worked in the hyperbaric medicine department. She moved to Tillsonburg with her husband and was a surgical nurse in the OR at Tillsonburg General Hospital. Moving to London and later Granton Jane worked at St. Joseph Hospital eventually becoming head nurse in the OR. Leaving active nursing she worked with Robarts Research and later the Cardiac Investigative Unit of Western University London. Her name appears on many published research papers. She retired in 2003. Jane was one of the first female scuba diving instructors in Canada. While working full time at St. Joe’s she completed her Nursing degree and was in the top of her class. She had a competitive spirit and faced challenges with determination.

Jane had many pastimes. In the early years she was busy sewing many of her own clothes. She made her high school gym outfit. She loved to ski (downhill and cross country). She was a major league Toronto Blue Jays baseball fan. She attended the first game in Toronto and kept the ticket. She went to spring training in Dunedin for many years and of course in Toronto with daughter Allison. She was an avid gardener and when the family moved to a 40-acre hobby farm near Granton she followed her passion and planted flowers everywhere.  She loved roses. She taught scuba diving in her spare time and enjoyed many trips to Tobermory and the Caribbean. She taught her friends to swim in the backyard pool. She and her husband had every animal possible on their hobby farm including a donkey named Elvis. She loved dogs – big ones not little ones.

Family and friends were always important to Jane. She and her husband Brad adopted two beautiful girls, Allison and Alicia. Her nieces and nephews were each and all her favourites. She loved her great nieces and nephews and treated them like her grandchildren. Her associations were many – Wild Women, Shout Sisters, Ladies of the Club bible study and of course the bridge ladies and the book club. She attended many bible studies at the Granton Community Church as well as those held amongst friends.

Donations to the Community Bible Church or the Bethesda Medical Clinic in Haiti would be appreciated by the family.  

Condolences for the family of “FINAN: Jane (Job) of London and formerly of Granton”

Condolence from Betty Finnie on April 8th, 2020 6:00 PM

Dear Brad and Allison

I am so sad to hear the awful news of Jane’s ‘too early’ death.
I have such fond memories of time spent at SPCS all of those years ago Allison. Your mom was always ready to do what needed to be done and joined in on so many projects. I loved her laugh, her energy and all that she brought to the busy days of Home and School.
I’m sad for your profound loss.
Kindest regards
Betty Finnie and Breken

Brad and Allison,

My condolences on Jane’s passing. I am sending hugs to you both.

Jane and I met many years ago when she was her first job in nursing. We became fast friends and experienced many adventures over the years. I will miss her steady calm competence, her no nonsense approach to life, her ability to get to the gist of issues cutting through any red herrings or spurious arguments, her caring, her sense of humour, her spirit of adventure, and her love for her family.

Condolence from The Seston Family on April 8th, 2020 9:11 PM

Brad and Allison
We were saddened to hear of Jane’s passing. As special as her nieces, nephews and grand nieces and grand nephews were to her, she was equally, if not more special to them.
No doubt she is in heaven caring for Alicia and waiting for spring training to resume.
Thinking of you at this difficult time.

Hi Brad

It broke my heart to hear about the loss of Jane. I will think of her every time I see the Jays play. We know you have your family and faith to help carry you through this time of transition. If you need anyone to chat with I am only a phone call away.

George and Carin Marr

Condolence from Barb (Cheesman) Kurpita on April 9th, 2020 11:36 AM

Many happy memories with Jane taking my sis Sandra and I to see the Ice Capades and Peter Pan at Maple Leaf Gardens, Movies such as ‘Bedknobs and Broomsticks’ and ‘Mary Poppins’ and still the only time I’ve been to watch the Toronto Santa Claus parade In person. We were her ‘practice kids’ when she was fresh out of school! I remember secretly help with ‘decorating the car’ at your wedding then ‘giving it away’ on your way to see it…
A fun, loving and giving woman always!
My heartfelt sympathies to you all.

Condolence from Birkett-Bella Family on April 9th, 2020 12:29 PM

Dear Brad & Allison:

We mourn the loss of Jane. She had such a joy for living. She was the ultimate nurse – practical and compassionate.

Forever grateful to Jane & Brad for my first cat, Punk! Straight off the farm! Will miss seeing photos of Jane at the Jays’ Spring training – watching the game and listening to it simultaneously on the radio, all suited up with big headphones. And, will most definitely miss her presence, and laugh, at family gatherings at the Finan’s.

You are in our thoughts. Sending big hugs to you both,
Leslie, Frank & Alex

Condolence from Brenda Taylor on April 9th, 2020 12:34 PM

I am deeply sorry for your loss. I remember Jane as a force and have many wonderful memories of our studies together in the Post RN program. In addition to education, We both wanted babies. Years later, We laughed at the kids playing in the pool together, always commenting on how much Allison looked like Jane and Jamie didn’t look like me…
Sending much love at this difficult time

Condolence from Ann Jackson and Tom Small on April 20th, 2020 4:16 PM

Dear Brad and family…
We were deeply saddened to see Jane’s obituary in our local paper. Tom didn’t know Jane but he did know you Brad. It has been many years since I treated Jane as her Massage Therapist. We always had wonderful conversations and she was a “go to” for me when looking for medical input. I can attest that she was a “Major League” Blue Jays fan and we laughed over some of her experiences at the games…trying not to get caught on camera while munching on snacks, watching and simultaneously listening on her radio to pick up any extra details. I recall when she slipped and broke her arm while ice skating, very calmly explaining to her daughter the steps needed to assist. She was a strong woman, sharply intelligent with a great sense of humour. Her faith supported her in difficult times. I’m sure she will be missed by many. Sending love and light to you and yours. Sincerely, Ann and Tom.

Condolence from David Henry on April 21st, 2020 5:56 PM

Brad, Allison & Extended Family: So sorry to hear of Jane’s passing. She had an amazing, busy, wonderful life. Never saw her without a smile. She was involved in so many things, I feel my life has barely begun. What a Blue Jays super-fan she was! Is that a coincidence that Brad was a great pitcher in his youth? She will be missed, but what a lot of great memories she left for those fortunate enough to know her. Peace & Love to all.
