Colin & Jan Ramsay
Married to my best mate, Jan was one time colleague, some time flat mate, long time chum for almost 50 years, through good and not so good times. Loving wife, devoted mother, hard worker, loyal friend, lavish hostess, charming guest, tireless worker for her charities, her smile and personality lit up any room. It’s a pleasure and a privilege to have known Jan. She will be sorely missed.
A wonderful funny and sociable person, who adored her son Toby.
We met in 1967 at Moorfields Eye Hospital starting our nursing training. Our last lunch together was pre pandemic and sadly no more opportunities.
Rest in Peace Jan.
Such a sad loss.
To my lovely ex boss and supervisor, I can still see you stamping your feet with laughter, I’m sorry you went too soon x
Janet, as I called her would be the first to work each morning; bright and bubbly.
As I’d come into our room where I sat near the door she’d turn round with her spectacles perched on her nose: “Hello Mark!” – then she’d do a ‘Janet laugh’ and whip off her spectacles and give me an update about the shenanigans happening on duty that morning..
Always a bundle of energy and good humour she had a skilful way of getting on with all the team and if needed, telling the Consultants what needed to be done to help a young person.
When I needed to take time off work she was kind and compassionate towards me and I’ll never never forget this. I thank Janet; for simply having met her at an important part of my life..
Rest in peace Janet x

This is an indescribable loss. To me, Jan was simply the most beautiful and amazing woman in the world, and I feel so blessed to have been her friend.
Warm, caring, dynamic, funny, stylish….I could go on…..
But one thing I do know is that, in all aspects of her life, she genuinely made the world a better place for everyone she met. She always saw the best in people and wanted the best for them, and that is why she is so loved. We will all miss her so very much x
We met at Moorfields eye hospital in 1967 she gave me a lesson in administrating a suppository !!! and shortly after left nursing.
We have spent the last 55 years laughing and enjoying our families. Had many holidays in Australia, UK, Prague and Singapore. Our parents were Welsh and we had a great hiraeth for rugby.
All the Williams clan will miss her intelligence, fun and wonderful hospitality.
Sorry we can not be with you.
Jenny, Charles and family
Thank you for all you’ve done for the children of Sri Lanka! Your warmth, care and infectious laughter will always linger on. Thank you for choosing to spend time here with us when you could have been anywhere… We will always miss you but are grateful for the lovely memories you’ve left in our hearts!

Went out of her way to see faith
She went out of her way to share Love
She went out her way to understand Empathy
She went out of her way to laugh at failure
She shared her laughter …. Which was always wonderful and contagious.
she went out of her way to bring many to happiness and we want to celebrate her life.
Rest well our dear friend until we meet again.

It is so lovely to read the wonderful tributes to Jan, all of those warm observations resonating with me too. I first met Jan with a paint brush in her hand when I turned up for a job interview at St Peter’s in 1992. She had taken it upon herself to spruce up the tired CAMHS clinic. Little did we realise how much more tired those rooms would become over the coming years. Jan was always full of life and laughter, a joy to have as a colleague and friend. Back in the day when co-working was a thing, we teamed up a lot, especially to see what we called our Friday afternoon girls, the most challenging kids who were so full of character. Jan always cared so much for those around her – colleagues, family, friends and the families she worked with, and they all cared just as much for her.
Jan has been taken from us all too early, but what love, learning and memories she has left us with. I will miss her dearly.
Difficult to find the words to express how much I’m going to miss you Jan.
Two trips to Sri Lanka with CAL,sharing so many experiences.
You were always so supportive and encouraging! So much laughter! You had so much energy and a passion for Child Action Lanka.
Bucket loads of integrity!A huge light has gone out in our lives.
Rest in peace dear Jan xx
What can I say an amazing, generous, rebellious and loving person who I had the pleasure of working alongside.
Such a force of nature whose passion and care for the children and young people and her colleagues always shone through.
My thoughts are with those she has left behind, family and friends and colleagues.
Janet you will be missed.
