In loving memory of Janet (Jan) Cecily Sawyer who sadly passed away after her brave battle with cancer on 18th November 2015.
Jan was the beloved wife of Roger, loving mother to Laura and Karen, loving mother in law to Ben and much loved Nanna to Mollie, Emily, Harry and Charlie.
Born in London, Jan touched many lives and this continued when she moved with the family to Dilhorne in Staffordshire in 1987. Here she became the sub postmistress, and she and Roger reopened the village shop. Janet offered all a warm welcome and an ever glowing smile. She was an active member of the community, in particular through her involvement with Dilhorne Recreation Centre and its activities such as carnivals, functions and line dancing!
In 2001 the family relocated to Walkhampton in Devon where alongside Roger they became licensees in the village pub. Janet continued to offer a warm welcome and enjoyed the company of all who lived near and visited the pub. Their next move was to Ashwater where Janet continued to touch the lives of all who knew her, being part of the playgroup, village shop and surrounding community including the community steel band. Janet will be sadly missed by so very many.
Funeral to be held at St Peter Ad Vincula, Ashwater parish church on 30th November 2015 at 2pm. Donations to North Devon Hospice and St Peter Ad Vincula tower fund project in lieu of flowers.
Jan was a shining light to all who met her and will be greatly missed by so many.
