Obituary of Dr. Janet Louise Hampton



Dr. Janet Louise (Jones) Hampton of Upper Kingsclear, NB, wife of Geoffrey Hampton passed away peacefully on Friday, March 20, 2020 at Frederick Hall-Shannex Fredericton, NB. Born on April 23, 1958 in Jewett’s Mills, NB, she was the daughter of Ardith (Burtt) Jones Lawrence and the late Durwood Jones. In addition to her husband, Janet is survived by her four children, Robin Hampton (Eric Menard), Beth McMullen (Ryan), Rowan Hampton (Jenny), Kirsty Whitlock (Brad); and her beloved grandchildren, Evelyn Hampton-Nicholson, Elsie McMullen, Gavin McMullen, Barrett McMullen and Theo Hampton; brother, Derek Jones (Sheila); sisters, Janell Alward (Troy) and Donna Alward (Gammon); many nieces and nephews. 


Jan fondly remembered her childhood growing up on the family apple orchard in Keswick Ridge. She left home to attend the University of Guelph where she met her soulmate Geoff while farrowing a pig. Janet loved her work as a Veterinarian; together with her husband they owned and operated the Islandview Veterinary Hospital. They were married 34 years, but she would tell you that forever would never be long enough. Her faith in God was a cornerstone in her life. She cherished her many years playing piano for her church family. Throughout the years, her love of animals led her to bring many pets home to be part of the family. Janet was a compassionate, gentle soul who always put others first-right until the very end of her battle with Alzheimers. Above all else, family, especially her children and grandchildren were her greatest joy in life and she never missed a moment to be with them for as long as she could. 


Janet will be missed, but never forgotten.
