CLINE, Janice Lynn (nee Skuba)
May 30, 1957 – November 28, 2012
On November 28, Janice Lynn Cline passed away peacefully in her sleep following a courageous battle with cancer.
In her final weeks Jan found herself uplifted by the love of friends and family both near and far. Although taken too soon, she lived life to the fullest and was happy and content, sharing her life adventure with Robin, her husband and best friend of 31 years, and her three beautiful daughters Julia, Patricia and Lindsay. Also left to lovingly remember Jan are her parents, Dr. Michael and Olga Skuba, and sisters Sharon (Hank) Hoekstra; Arlene (Nigel) Bowles; and Val (Jeff) Stobbe. Jan will be forever remembered by her numerous nieces, nephews and extended family in the United States and Australia and by her dear friends.
After graduation from the University of Alberta in 1979 with a BSc in Pharmacy, Jan established Village IDA Pharmacy. Her focus was providing professional, personal care to her many loyal customers and in that respect she was never one to disappoint. She will be missed by the entire Village IDA family, colleagues and customers. Jan will be remembered for her beautiful smile and big heart. She always put others before herself, calling herself a "chronic volunteer". She touched everyone around her with her care and compassion.
