June 28, 1933 – March 5, 2015
Jane Lucinda Lofgren (nee Intermela) passed away peacefully with family by her side in the evening of Thursday, March 5, 2015, at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops.
She was predeceased by her husband Raymond Courtenay Lofgren and is survived by her sons Raymond Lofgren (Karen), Eric Lofgren (Claire) and Shawn Lofgren. She was a proud Nanny to grandchildren Christopher (Breanna), Matthew, Jacob, Hunter, Matt (Lacey), and Bailey.
Janie was the youngest of her seven siblings, born in Prince Rupert on June 28, 1933 ,and was married to Raymond Lofgren on June 30, 1956. Their oldest son Raymond Lee was born on August 17, 1958, followed by Eric Martin on March 22, 1963.
Raymond and Jane moved to Chemainus on Vancouver Island in the spring of 1965, and their youngest son Shawn Clifford was born on August 20, 1971.
Raymond and Jane were on the rodeo circuit and opened one of the first tack shops on the Island. Her love for all animals was second to none, she had a kind and gentle spirit and all animals loved her. She particularly loved horses, dogs and cats.
Jane was an accomplished baker, and was known for her countless batches of goodies that were devoured by her family.
In 1989 Raymond and Jane moved to Little Fort and enjoyed many years on their acreage. She spoke often that these were some of the happiest years of their lives.
Jane moved to Barriere in 2000 after her husband Raymond passed away, and lived in Barriere and later at Louis Creek. Jane has many close friends within this area.
Jane was an accomplished knitter and crotchetier and in 2007 she knitted 999 pairs of slippers and donated them to the children’s hospital. She truly loved handy crafting.
There will be no formal service at her request but a small family gathering will take place in the near future where she will be laid to rest beside her husband Raymond in the peaceful cemetery in Little Fort.
