JANINA FAIRES (published on August 11, 2009)

JANINA FAIRES (nee BICZAK) It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Janina on August 9, 2009 at The Convalescent Home of Winnipeg. She was born in Brody Duze, Poland on October 19, 1923. Janina was nine years old when she came to Canada with her mother and sister. Janina's mother was happy to join her husband and the girls were together again with their father. Having attended school in Winnipeg and Westwood (Kirkfield Park), Janina then chose to be a seamstress, at which she excelled, and was employed in the garment industry until her retirement. Janina will be deeply missed by daughter Cheryl (Barry) Nash, son Wayne (Karen) Faires, grandchildren Michael, Roxanne, Kristopher and Ashley Faires, sister Helen (Joe) Slomiany, nieces, Carole Gallagher, Helen Owen, Wanda Slomiany, nephews, John Kozlowski and Wally Slomiany and their families. She was predeceased by her father Leonard Biczak in 1979, mother Mary Biczak in 1988, infant nephew Lenny Slomiany in 1971, sister Mary Kozlowski in 1995 and brother-in-law Ludwik Kozlowski in 2009. Janina was a loving and elegant woman who was very proud of her family, her home and the life she made for herself. She enjoyed bowling, gardening, shopping, music and her many trips to Mexico, Hawaii, Barbados and the southern USA. She was a long-time member of St. James Lutheran Church and her faith was very important to her. She also belonged to the Assiniboine Optimist Club and enjoyed this fellowship. Janina was an independent, hard working woman who will be always remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, sister and aunty. The family would like to express their deepest appreciation for the care Mother received at The Convalescent Home. Funeral service will be Thursday, August 13, at 11:00 a.m. at St. James Lutheran Church, 871 Cavalier Drive, Winnipeg. In lieu of flowers a donation in Janina's memory can be made to the Convalescent Home of Winnipeg, 276 Hugo St. N., R3M 2N6. Chapel Lawn 885-9715
