Janice Carole "Jan" Hughes – 62, Valley. It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our kind hearted friend on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro. Born in Truro, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Audrey (Rector) Hughes.

Jan had an easy going charm about her, along with a contagious laugh that will be dearly missed by her cat, Leroy, her friends, her family and employers, co-workers and customers of her 30 plus years of working at Northern Pulp in Debert and Truro Horsemen’s Club in Bible Hill. Besides working, Jan enjoyed karaoke, live performances and concerts, puzzles, darts, baseball and hockey, especially Montreal Canadiens.

She was always there with a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen; many hugs and tears of joy and sorrow were shared with this dear lady who we all considered a very dear friend. Being an only child, Jan cherished the friendships with her girlfriends, the sisters that she never had. We are forever grateful to have held a special place in her life and us in hers. She will always have a special place in our hearts.

Jan and Leroy shared a special bond; she rescued him when he was left abandoned and they were inseparable. Along with aunts, uncles and cousins, Jan had a wide circle of friends who will dearly miss her.

Celebration of Jan’s life will be held from 2-5 p.m., Sunday, November 6, 2022, at Truro Horsemen’s Club, 288 Main Street, Bible Hill. Interment will be held at a later date in Bible Hill Cemetery, Warren Drive, Bible Hill. If so desired, donations in Jan’s memory to Colchester SPCA or charity of choice are welcomed.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall – Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro. Private messages of condolence may be sent by viewing Jan’s obituary on-line and selecting "Send A Condolence" at: www.mattatallvarnerfh.com
