Janet Lynn Gambrell (Porter) passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family at home on Lake of Bays in Muskoka, on Thursday January 14th, 2021.
Daughter of the late Jack and Anna Porter. Beloved wife of Bill Gambrell. Cherished mother of David (Linda) and Sarah (Zak). Adored Nana of Ryan, Alex, Anna, Jake, Knowl and Hugh. Treasured big sister to Bruce and David Porter.
Janet was more then a mentor and a role model. She was a trailblazer. Janet was a tenacious advocate for educators, administrators and newcomers to Canada. The footprint she has left is extraordinary.
Janet loved her family more than anything. She was happiest at the cottage, on the golf course or traveling the world.
Her infectious smile will be missed by all.
In lieu of flowers, any donations made to the Palliative Team through the Huntsville Hospital Foundation would be greatly appreciated. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/janetgambrell
