Obituary of Jan M. Harrison - Harborenko
HARRISON - HARBORENKO, Jeanette (Jan) Marguerite – Philanthropist, Animal lover, Aunt & Friend. It is with great sadness we announce the death of our dear Jan after a lengthy struggle with cancer at home surrounded by people she loved. Jan was born on November 6, 1932 in Toronto and grew up in west end. As a child she spent every summer at her grandparent’s farm in Collingwood forming wonderful memories that she shared often with us. As an adult she spent some time in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a medic, which was a very happy time for Jan. She then went on to have several careers before becoming a very successful financial planner owning her own practice with IPC Investment Corporation. Jan sang beautifully and was in several choirs when she was younger. Jan was involved in several charities including Covenant House, Toronto Humane Society and Animal Alliance of Canada. Each charity had a special meaning for Jan. Predeceased by her husband of 30 years, John Harborenko. Jan will be fondly missed by her niece Catherine Cadorin, best friend Polly Tan, and close friend Connie Arruda. She will be sadly missed by her two girls Meesha and Misty. Jan enjoyed her classical music which was a constant in her house. We would to thank Dr. Kim, Dr. Cole and Dr. Gray as well as the staff at Milton District Hospital along with the staff at Acclaim Health for the comfort, care and attention they provided Jan in the last weeks of her life. As expressions of sympathy donations to Covenant House, Toronto Humane Society, or the Animal Alliance of Canada would be much appreciated. Cremation has taken place. Memorial to take place at a later date by invitation only. Condolences can be left online at J. Scott Early Funeral Home Inc.
