Lenore (“Lenny”) Janzen, age 82 years, passed away peacefully on August 7, 2022 at her residence in Silver Creek, BC.  Lenore was born on February 9, 1940 in Calgary, AB and was the oldest of 5 children.  She later moved with her family to New Westminster, BC where she graduated from Lester B. Pearson school. Lenore met her husband Hank, an RCMP officer, and moved numerous times within BC and Saskatchewan. Lenore selflessly supported her husband throughout his demanding RCMP career. They later retired in Silver Creek near Salmon Arm, BC in October 2014. 

During their postings Lenore gave piano and voice lessons to young people which she enjoyed very much. She had a passion for music and had earned a music degree from the Banff School of Fine Arts. Lenore is survived by her loving husband of 59 years, Heinz (“Hank”) Janzen, her 3 children and greatest blessings, Krista, Randy (Lisa) and Karin (Chris),5 grandchildren, Katelyn, Avery, Evan, Chelsea and Shaylea, and 3 great granddaughters, Blake, Bennett and Fallon. Lenore is predeceased by her great grandson Gordon Heinz, who we know she is holding on tightly to in the heavens above.

A celebration of life for Lenore will be held on August 27, 2022 in Silver Creek.
