Why order flowers through us?

Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.

The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Obituary for Jacob Janzen

It is with great sorrow that the Janzen family wishes to announce the passing of Jacob Janzen on Sunday, November 20th, 2011. He will be sadly missed by his sons: Christian Janzen (Mary Goodenough) of Toronto and Anchor Janzen (Darlene Berube) of Kapuskasing; his grandchildren: Wesley, Emily and Jacob, of whom he was all greatly proud of. He also leaves in mourning, his siblings: William “Bill” Janzen; Elizabeth “Betty” Radunsky, George Janzen (Alice) and Anna Peters (Henry) and many loving nieces and nephews.

Known to his many friends and relatives as “Jake”, he was born in Steinbach, Russia. At only two weeks old his family fled to Canada where he grew up in Reesor, Ontario just east of Mattice. In his younger years he worked in Southern Ontario on some of his uncles’ farms before volunteering for World War II and proudly serving his country. On his return, he worked over 40 years for Spruce Falls Power and Paper Company in Kapuskasing as a devoted employee before retiring in 1987. After working another few years for M.J. Labelle Co. Ltd. he decided to retire the hard hat for good.

Never one to really boast, he had a sharp memory for all his years of work and could recall details that would have you believe you were right there reliving it with him at that moment. He was also quietly proud of his Legion Service and his yearly “trooping of the colours” for his lost comrades; something he talked much less of.

Jacob Janzen will be resting at the Guenette Funeral Home on Thursday from 2:00 to 4:00 and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The funeral service will be held on Friday, November 25 at 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home Chapel with Reverend Jen Dresser officiating. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Royal Canadian Legion or the Ontario Heart and Stroke Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
