Today, July 25th, 2020, at 7:26 AM, our Immediate Passed President Jan Siegel passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Her husband, Courtney Doldron Assistant Governor Rotary District 7070, was with her at the moment of her passing. Our Rotary Club of Willowdale is heartbroken for this loss of an exceptional human being!
Jan, age 71, was a warm, loving and kind hearted person, always ready to help by showing true action and literally serving the community above herself until the very end. Our club members extend our deepest condolences to her husband Fellow Rotarian Courtney Doldron, their children, grand children and family: Ashley and Kevin Todoroff with their children Harper and Pyton, Tiffany and Justin McMillan, Whitney and Martin Dowers with their children Aaron and Jacob. Jan was a devoted mother and grandmother. She was the loving step-mother of Melissa, dear sister and sister-in-law of Pam and Guy, devoted step-grandmother of Azhar, loving aunt of Brendan and Pam, and Morgan and Trudy.
We love you Jan! We will miss you tremendously. It was a privilege to know you and serve the community with you. Rest in Peace. 
Our President Stephen Phillips presents the following letter in honour of Jan Siegel at this heartbroken moment in our club:

It was with untold sadness that I learned from Courtney of Past President Jan’s death. Jan passed away at 7.26 am this morning, 25th July 2020.

Jan was one of the bravest and most capable persons that I have had the privilege to know and count amongst my friends. She had an outstanding mind. She was brave in every sense and in every action that she took. She was a brilliant President of the Rotary Club of Willowdale. Jan and Courtney together, as a fantastically capable team brought an untold energy to our Club and set the achievement bar so high that future Presidents will live in their shadow for many years to come.

Jan brought up three wonderful and capable girls and was able to briefly enjoy the adoration of her grandchildren, all of whom will miss her tremendously for the rest of their lives.

I am truly thankful that I was privileged to share Jan as a part of my life and my love and best wishes go to Courtney and all the family in the hope that they can now start to rebuild their lives.

I am sure that Jan would not want us to mourn, so it is now incumbent on all of us to step up and give to the Rotary Club of Willowdale, in every sense, as Jan would have expected us to do.

I mourn Jan and will miss her terribly.
