Janice Nicholson

January 11, 1935 - July 23, 2015

Peacefully at her farm in Hillier on Thursday, July 23rd, 2015. Jan Nicholson, at the age of 80. Predeceased by her beloved Sophie-Marianne Rau. Remembered fondly by her family and many friends in the places she loved; the County, Germany and Australia. Jan's life had many chapters. Her early life began in Melbourne Australia, her professional life commenced when she emigrated to London England. The next phase began as Jan took her education, experience and that spirit of hers to York University. She was appointed professor of Administrative Studies and Dean of Atkinson College. She pioneered programs and schools that today are significant parts of the York University curriculum . Jan, maybe by chance or maybe because of her adventuresome spirit in the later years, became a farmer when re-locating to Prince Edward County in 1974 . She became one with the land. A surprising human being. Funeral Service will be held at the Whattam Funeral Home, 33 Main Street, Picton, Ontario on Wednesday July 29th at 2:00 p.m. Interment to follow at Wellington Cemetery. If Desired, donations to the Loyalist Humane Society would be appreciated.
