Jane Wardlaw

The Ottawa Lions mourn the loss of long time club volunteer Jane Wardlaw who passed away Saturday at the age of 85. Jane, along with her husband of 61 years, Bob, were instrumental in the running of the club during its initial 15 years of existence as the East Ottawa Lions.

Reflecting on Jane, long time Ottawa official Barclay Frost added, “So sorry to hear of Jane’s passing. Both my wife, Janet and I have spent many a day working at track meets with both Jane and Bob. She was a great lady and we will always have fond memories of her doing the scoring and recording so effectively before the days of computers. She was a pioneer.”

Family and friends are invited to Beechwood, Funeral, Cemetery and Cremation Services, 280 Beechwood Avenue (East of Vanier Parkway), Friday, April 24, 2015 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 11 a.m. in the Sacred Space of Beechwood.
