passed away on January 26, 2011. Jan in her quiet loving way made the world a better place for her family, friends and neighbours. Jan was born in Ottawa and she lived in many different places in Canada before her parents made the Comox Valley their permanent home. Jan left Comox to work as a draftsperson in Edmonton, Vancouver and Victoria. In 1993, she moved to Qualicum Beach with her husband Doug Higgins and their two sons Benjamin and Daniel. She had a great love for quilting and spent many hours enjoying the friendship of fellow quilters. She showed her love for everyone she met through the beautiful quilts that she carefully made and shared. We pray that she is now in the loving embrace of her father Harvey Carnahan, her mother Kathleen and her sister Dale.
