Jane Dorothy MacPherson



Jane Dorothy MacPherson passed away peacefully on April 5, 2014 with her mother and close friends at her side.

Jane was born in Calgary and grew up in Lethbridge, where she excelled at sports and academics. She continued her post secondary education at the University of Alberta, graduating with distinction from the Faculty of Law. After articling with the Court of Appeal of Alberta, she started and remained in private practise in Edmonton. Jane devoted her legal career to giving a voice to children and youth in crisis. She was a pioneer in the field of child intervention law. She was highly respected and renowned for her expertise, providing mentorship and leadership to many lawyers and organizations involved with children and youth.

Jane was humble, yet tenacious, loyal, gracious and generous, and had a zest for life. She was courageous and inspirational. Jane loved to travel and garden, was a ferocious reader, and had many close friends who enjoyed her spectacular culinary and hospitality skills.

Jane is predeceased by her father, Ray, and survived by her mother, Dorothy.

A Celebration of Jane’s Life will be held on Saturday, April 12, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. at the Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 10011 – 114 Street, Edmonton.

Jane will be sadly missed by all.

“Ta Ta For Now!”

In Loving Memory of
Jane Dorothy MacPherson
