1954 ~ JANICE PONTO ~ 2023 The family of Janice Mary Ponto (nee Beck) are so sad to announce her passing on March 15th, 2023 at the age of 68 years. She leaves to honour her memory her husband, Gordon; and son, Stephen, who says she was the best person he ever knew! She also leaves her mom, Dolores; brothers, Keith (Regi) and Stephen; and sister, Nancy (Greg), mother-in-law, Helen (Sid); and sister in-law, Terry (Dwayne); as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members on her and Gordon’s sides. She was predeceased by her dad, Harvey Beck, and father-in-law, Norman Ponto. Janice was born on November 24th, 1954. She grew up in Redcliff and Medicine Hat, graduating from McCoy High School. Janice moved to Calgary and took her LPN training. She worked as an LPN at the Calgary General Hospital for many years. Janice and Gordon were married in 1983. They moved back to Medicine Hat and she worked at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital. In 1994, they welcomed their son, Stephen, into their family; he was always Janice’s pride and joy! They were able to spend many years of good health and enjoyed camping and travelling. Janice enjoyed watching reno and cooking shows to get ideas for her home and for family meals. Janice was a talented seamstress, knitter, and scrapbooker. She loved to shop and loved pets. She took up painting in her more recent years. We will miss our precious mom, wife, sister, and aunt. Rest in peace Janice. A private service for family may be held at a later date.
