Janet Butchart

Janet Butchart

Janet Nora Helene Butchart, of Hanover, passed away peacefully at Hanover and District Hospital on Monday, March 6, 2023. She was 74.

Born in Walkerton on March 31, 1948 to the late Noah and Sadie (nee Herbst) Brusso. Janet was in retail for most of her working career. Many people will remember her at Pharma Plus, Rexall, Zellers, Mac's and Hanover Auto Wreckers. Before starting her family she worked in the law office of Glen Crawford. She was always quick to pull out the camera for any event or occasion to capture those special moments, so much so that being behind the camera made it difficult to get a photo of herself enjoying these times. She rarely forgot a birthday or other special occasion, marking the event with a specially selected greeting card.

Survived by daughter Victoria (Craig) Miller of Mineville, Nova Scotia, sons Andy Butchart (Alysa Beirnes) of Hanover, and Matthew Butchart (Darlee Gerrard) of York.  Loved grandmother of Dustin and Elouise. Remembered fondly by her siblings Katherine Weber of St. Thomas, Barb (Paul) Foerster of Ayton, Richard Brusso, Kenneth (Linda) Brusso both of Normanby Township and Mary Schlorff of RR4 Hanover as well as her nieces, nephews and their families. Predeceased by her parents, brother Robert (Theresa) Brusso and her brother in law Neil Schlorff.

Family and friends are invited to St. Peter's Lutheran Church - Neustadt for a Memorial Celebration of Life Service on Saturday, March 11, 2023 at 11:00 am.  Pastor Fred Ludolph officiating. A reception will follow at the Neustadt Community Centre. Cremation has taken place with a family inurnment in St. Peter's Lutheran Cemetery, Neustadt, at a later date. 

Memorial donations to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation or to GBHS - Oncology Dept. would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy. Arrangements entrusted to the care of Mighton Funeral Home, Hanover.  

Public Condolences

I will miss my e-mail correspondence with Janet over the past few years. She never seemed to forget my birthday and I loved getting her cards. She was my favourite person to work the night shift with at Rexall. She was kind, funny, and compassionate.. I will miss her. Many will miss her.
