Jannice passed away suddenly on Tuesday, August 2, 2022 at her cottage in Gravenhurst, ON with her husband by her side. Her family is, of course, devastated by this unexpected and tremendous loss. Jannice was the beloved wife of Mike Deere, loving mother of Meghan Deere (Martyn Bryant), and wonderful and cherished “Gramma Jamma” to Rosa Bryant-Deere. Loving sister of Paul Rankin and the late Joseph Rankin. Dear sister-in-law of Setsuko Rankin (mother of Joey and Mark).
Jannice was an exceptional and devoted friend who will be very sadly missed by all who knew her. A dedicated caregiver through and through, her quiet humour and immense generosity have touched so many.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, August 12 at 11 AM at Occasions by the Bay, 980 Old Highway 2, Trenton ON, K8V 5P5.
Jan was a dedicated blood donor, and donated blood whenever she was able. Memorial contributions to Canadian Blood Services greatly appreciated, including blood donations if you’re eligible.
