It is with great sadness that the family of Janys McGinnis (born Anderson) announce her passing on June 19th, 2021. Janys was born October 13th, 1964, daughter to Betty and Ed Anderson.
She attended school at MBCI in The Pas, Manitoba and completed her Registered Nursing Diploma at Grace General Hospital, Winnipeg, Manitoba. After working in Winnipeg and The Pas Hospitals, she relocated to Saskatoon where she had been working at both City Hospital and Royal University Hospital. Her caring and compassionate personality lent well to her chosen career.
Janys took great pride in raising her children and loved the time she spent with her granddaughters. She was extremely organized in every aspect of her life and found every opportunity to host family dinners and celebrations.
Janys began riding horses at the age of 5, developing a passion for horseback riding and barrel racing which continued throughout her life. Many awards were won including beautiful buckles which were proudly displayed in her home. Janys’ artistic flair led to many hobbies including scrapbooking, gardening and handicrafts. She loved camping and thrived on travelling with family and friends.
Janys will be deeply missed by her husband Ron; her son Rylan(Dani); daughter Kaitlyn(Stephen); parents Betty and Ed; sisters Sheri(Joe), Diane(Dave) and brother Daryl(Connie); nieces Taylor, Alyssa(Connor), Madison, Emily and Brooke and nephews Jacob(Ula) and Liam; and granddaughters Atiana and Oceanna.
A celebration of Janys’ life will be held at 10:30am on Monday June 28th, 2021 at Saint Philip Neri Catholic Church, Saskatoon.

I attended nursing school with Janys, and she’s one of our “Gracie girls.” She will be so missed. We started reconnecting as a group a few years back, and it’s been such a wonderful thing to be back in touch and to be back together. When we met in Niagara Falls we teased Janys about her huge suitcase. Only to find out that she’d brought along all her scrapbooking materials to make each of us these gorgeous mementos of our time together before we parted. How beautifully and typically Janys! I’ll treasure that little book and think of her every time I open it. My deepest condolences to the family.
So sorry to hear of Janys’ passing. My condolences to all of Janys’ loved ones. I was just Facebook chatting with her in April. I am so sorry I didn’t realize she was so ill or I would have started on her drawing sooner. I will pick one of the pictures she provided and complete the drawing as she wished.
Ron, Rylan, Katie and Janys family, my deepest sympathy to you all. I worked with Janys for many years at City Hospital where we became friends. I have so many wonderful memories of Janys and her Zest for life. She was a Lovely Friend and will be so missed.
So sorry to hear that Janys passed away. I went to school either in The Pas and remember her for her great personality and kindness. Passing heartfelt condolences from my family to yours. 😓
She was such a good friend to me when I was growing up in The Pas. With kindness and grace she never judged people and was just supportive. Just like her parents.
I grew up with Janys in The Pas. She was full of energy. I send condolences from across the pond to her family and friends. I can only hope that she continues to walk in your lives in your conversations, dreams, love and laughter.
Betty, Eddie & Family,
I’m so very sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May you find comfort in the treasured memories of your time together.

My deepest sympathies to Janys ‘s family . We worked together at City Hospital & shared quite a few laughs on our breaks & while working . Janys was so proud of her children. You are all in my thoughts and prayers . One of my fondest memories was when she showed me a photo of her kayaking when a whale breached right beside her kayak . I asked her to do a close up of her face & the look was 1000 times priceless . OMG we laughed so hard at that picture . Many priceless memories !!!! I’m so very sorry for your loss.
So very sorry to hear that Janys passed away. My sincere condolences to all of Janys’ loved ones. I will always cherish my childhood memories of Janys as we jumped our horses over hay bales and rode along the dike. Janys, I will miss your laugh and zest for life.

Mr. and Mrs. Anderson, Ron, and families,
I am so sorry for your loss. I am just heartbroken at losing such a wonderful friend that I’ve had since childhood. Janys was such a great friend throughout the years and I am so happy that we were able to have a girl’s weekend together and will cherish the laughs and fun we had. Wish I could be there in person today – I’ll be attending the livestream. Sending you all hugs and prayers from my family to yours.
Love, prayers and strength to all who loved Janys.
