Coady, Janet Elizabeth—

Passed away peacefully with her children by her side at her home in Guelph on Wednesday, June 2, 2021. Janet Coady, age 67 years, was the beloved mother of Todd Coady (Stacey), and Melissa Tonge (Clinton), and cherished grandmother of Isabella, Reece, Coen, Finn, and Emmett. Janet was the dear sister of Carol Ann, Mary Lou, David and Mark, and loving partner of Jean-Pierre Schoch.

Janet will be missed by her friends and colleagues at the Guelph Public Library where she worked for 30 years. Next to her family, and pride for her work at the Library, gardening (her third love) filled her soul. Janet spent years transforming the outside environment of her homes, from bare lawns into wild botanical oases.

As many know, Janet fought a long and courageous battle with her health for many years. Her family would like to thank her colleagues and friends that kept her in their prayers, and to Dr. Shafir, as well as all of the other incredible and devoted team of nurses and caregivers that supported her over the years, especially during these unprecedented times.

Private cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Janet’s life to be held at a later date. As an expression of sympathy, consider planting a flower in your garden in her memory, or donations to the Canadian Cancer Society
would be appreciated by the family. Donation cards are available at the Gilbert MacIntyre & Son Funeral Home, Dublin Chapel, 252 Dublin St. N., Guelph 519-822-4731 or online at

The family will take great comfort, and pride, that her memory will live on in every plant that she touched, and in the beautiful gardens and spaces that she created. Please help them in remembering her by taking a moment and embracing the beauty and smell of a flower in bloom.

Melissa and Family,
My heart is with you all during this time. Although many years have past my memories of your mom and all the time I spent at the townhouse, library, and wherever else our journeys took us will always be close to my heart. Your mother was a wonderful, strong, beautiful, accepting and might I mention cool Woman. Thinking of you, take care of each other.
Love Lindsay Pinson (Patterson)

It was a joy and a privilege to work alongside Janet for many years. I can only hope her strong work ethic of offering “How can I help”, “Tell me what you need me to do” and “I can take your desk shift” will rub off on me. Her one phrase that will be forever etched in my mind is when she would say “You’re the best!” It was her special way of letting you know she appreciated you. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family. Diana Borg
