She was predeceased by her son Jamie Clifton, father Reg Kesler, brother Mark Kesler, two unborn great grandchildren, father-in-law G.R. Clifton, sister-in-law Kathy Wolfer and by her first husband John Brauer.
Janet was born in Brooks on September 28, 1947 to Reg and Beth Kesler. She was a very active child growing up. Janet could be found helping her mom with household duties or outside assisting her dad with rodeo events. She was always the strong organized one, ensuring everything was done in a timely manner. Janet always said “you’d better be a half hour early and don’t be late”! A trait some have followed fatefully.
Janet was world travelled. She often commented on how lucky she was as not many had the opportunity to travel to the destinations she had.
Janet had many struggles in her life including the loss of her first husband in 1977 which left her a widow with three young children. Fortunately for Janet, she met the love of her life Dale and they were married in 1979 and they were later blessed with their son Jamie in 1980.
Janet was active in sports, cattle and family. Her cooking was always the best. Dale, her children and grandchildren were the most important treasures in her life. They meant everything to her. She will be dearly missed.
Janet’s last weeks were a struggle to say the least but through the love and support of her husband Dale and the rest of her family and friends, she fought until the bitter end. She faced her illness head on and never faultered in her journey of teaching our family how to be strong and how to love no matter what.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Janet’s name may be made directly to the Canadian Liver Foundation, National Office, 801, 3100 Steeles Avenue East, Markham, Ontario L3R 8T3 (www.liver.ca).

and spend time with her, playing marbles, having tea parties, crafting,
and playing cards. Family was most important to her. Joyce continued to
live on the farm until four years after Morris passed away. She then
moved to her little house in Bow Island, and then to Pleasant View
Lodge. Joyce was always a happy, positive person, always had a smile for
you, and always had a good sense of humor. She has touched the hearts of
many, and will be missed by all.
