It is with great sadness that the family of Ike Janzen announces his passing. He will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by his wife Vera, children Ian, Danielle (Clayton) and Jeremy (Kaitlyn), grandchildren Layla, Isabelle, Madilyn, Clayton Jr and Hayden.
Ike was predeceased by his parents Aron and Anna as well as siblings Anne, Mary, Tina, Helen, Aron, Dave and Jake. He is survived by John, Abe, Freda, Herb and Agnes.
Ike was born in Coaldale Alberta but grew up on a farm near Glenwood where he learned to work. At age 17 he applied that work ethic to a job on the rigs where he worked his way up to Oil Company Representative. Ike left the oil patch in 1987 and with a partner purchased bankrupt Quality Car Wash in Edmonton. After several years he continued on his own and built up a thriving business. He retired in 2009 at age 68.
The family extends their gratitude to the staff in Emergency and Units 17 & 15 at Sturgeon Hospital for the kind, patient care Ike received.
Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 PM, June 15, 2023, at Heartland Alliance Church, 53105 – Highway 21, Sherwood Park.
