We are saddened to announce the passing of our mom, Janet Doran, who passed peacefully on Friday, January 29, 2021 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital in Sydney.

Born on November 12, 1925 in Sydney, Janet was the daughter of the late George and Mae (Beach) Wambolt. She was a lifelong resident of Grand Lake Road.

Janet was loved by all who knew her. She was fondly known as Momma Mouse with a heart of gold and a gentle soul. She loved going to bingo and going for a drive, stopping along the way for a sundae. Her teapot was always on and she never wanted you to leave the house hungry.

Janet is survived by her sons, Charles, George (Jane), Ray (Catherine) and Richard; daughters, Ida (Robert), Erna, Shirley (Jack) Laffin, Margaret Fitzgerald, Charlotte (Keith) Pyne and Charlene Pope; 15 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; brother, Gordon (Monica) Wambolt; sister, Velzora Campbell; sister-in-law, Annabelle Wambolt; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, Janet was predeceased by her husband, William; daughter, Eileen Nicholson; son, William; sons-in-law, Patrick Fitzgerald and Frederick Pope; great-grandson, Vincent Nugent; as well as seven brothers and five sisters.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the funeral for the late Janet Doran will be held at a later date with interment to take place Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.

Donations in memory of Janet may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.

So sorry to hear Aunt Janet has passed away, we still remember the last time we saw her at the reunion in 2016. She gave Mabel one of her red roses that she got at the supper and it lasted all the way home and they let us keep it at the Border.

I was deeply saddened to hear of my Aunt Janet’s passing. My deepest condolences to all my cousins and their families. Aunt Janet was special and so kind hearted it is hard to imagine. She was especially good to me growing up and always had a piece of homemade bread and tea at the ready. I will miss her dearly. God bless you all and rest in peace Aunt Janet.
