Jane Malgo born June 6, 1949, passed away in the late evening of June 28, 2020, at the Hamilton General Hospital. She grew up in Winona with her mother (Lola), father (Camron who passed when Jane was five), sister Merrie and late sister Anne. Jane became a nurse and worked at St. Joseph's and McMaster Hospitals. She married her best friend John Malgo on July 26, 1969, and enjoyed over 50 wonderful years of marriage together. She has two sons John and Stephen who she said, "has been the most rewarding and pleasurable part of my life." Jane was very happy to see them get married to her daughter-in-laws Rebecca and Marinela whom she loved very much. Family was very important to her. She would always say, "remember to tell the people you love that you love them, you can never tell them too many times." Jane was a very proud Canadian and always tried to do her part. She took her grandchildren, Katarina, John and Alexandra, to Ottawa to instil some of the pride she had for Canada to them. She loved to travel, read, do crosswords, and be on her iPad FaceTiming her grandchildren. Jane was very tech-savvy for her age and generation. Jane was a loving, caring, and kind woman. She volunteered for the Heart and Lung Association, Nelles Manor, and the Red Hats Society. Janes faith was very important to her and she was an active member of Grimsby's St. Andrews Anglican Church. She could always be counted on to lead a hand when needed. Jane wrote her grandchildren a book called "Grammey's Words of Wisdom," she ended it with a quote from Winnie the Pooh, "If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever." And we will do just that, you will forever be in our hearts. A funeral will be be held at 9:30 am on Tuesday July 7th 2020, at Grimsby's St. Andrews Anglican Church. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canada Blood Services would be greatly appreciated.

My husband and I are new neighbours to John and Jane Malgos. We had the pleasure of meeting Jane. Although our time getting to know her was short, she was always very kind and welcoming to us. Our deepest condolences to all her family and friends.

I was devastated to read that my friend Jane Malgo passed away last Sunday. Jane was a wonderful, kind person, a friend to truly emulate. We worked together on the Renal Transplant Unit at St Joseph's hospital at its inception in 1970, we were a team, I like to believe that we were instrumental in the work of establishing an effective care unit. I am regretful to have lost touch in recent years with such a beautiful soul. My deepest condolences to John, John jr, Stephen and their families. She will be so missed.

In 2018 I became a volunteer @ Nelles Manor. On my first walk through I was in the company of a lovely lady & her grandchild. Her name was Jane Malgo. Little did I know she was an original volunteer or that Id have the pleasure of getting to know Jane whilst sharing the fun of events and meetings for the next couple of years. Always cheerful and willing, Jane was thoughtful like no other. Her place at the table in the old manor kitchen will be very sadly empty.
Heartfelt thoughts and prayers to John and family. You all made Jane light up with pride and joy.

Jane was a nursing classmate and a memorable woman. Those entrusted to her care will remember her as a caring, committed and compassionate nurse. I will remember her high-spirited, warm and effervescent personality. She had a "joie de vivre", a smile for everyone and a contagious laugh that followed. Jane has been a positive force in our nursing class of 1970 and in the nursing profession. Blessings and peace to her family and friends.

Sweet Jane would get settled and welcome all visitors to Nelles Manor with amazing smiles and grace. Mobility problems didnt stop her either-she just kept doing everything she could. (can still see her sitting in a chair drying a mountain of dishes after an event.) She made sure all people were acknowledged for efforts
