PRICE, Janet Orene
June 6, 1955 – February 7, 2014
Gary Wilkinson of Mississauga is saddened to announce the unexpected death of his wife, Orene, on February 7, 2014 after 31 years together. Orene was employed for 35 dedicated years with the Ministry of Revenue. She and Gary shared many passions through Mimico Cruising Club, A4C’s Antique Car Club, collecting antiques and over 200 hats. Orene was a perfectionist in volunteer positions and while cooking in her professional kitchen. Orene’s warm smile and deep care for friends and family, including her furry friends, will be missed by many. Dearly loved and survived by her mother, Miriam Price, Port Perry, ON, her sisters, Laurel Price (John Nugent), Brooklin, ON, Paula Price, Winfield, BC, and “favourite” nephew, Aidan Nugent. Predeceased by her father D. John Price and fondly remembered by his wife, Sherry Price, Vernon, BC. Caring sister-in-law to David (Dorothy) Wilkinson, Jane (Bill) Ball, James (Maureen) Wilkinson. Also remembered by Gary’s children, Jeffery (Lisa) Wilkinson, Brampton, ON, Jennifer Wilkinson (Adam Mander), Australia and grandson, Joshua Wilkinson.
Special thanks to Peel Regional Police, Fire and Paramedics for their effort on Orene’s last day. Sincere gratitude for the professional care from her team of diabetic specialists in Toronto and Mississauga. A Celebration of Life for Orene is planned for Sunday, April 13, 2014 at Mimico Cruising Club, Etobicoke, ON, 12-3 pm. Donations in her memory can be made to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (www.jdrf.ca).
