Janet Demary (nee: Tremblay)
My name is Janet Demary (nee: Tremblay). I was born and raised in Hawk Junction where I reside with my husband Del of 40 years and my dog Sasha. My mother’s family is from the Souliere clan. My grandmother, Margaret, was one of 7 sisters born to my great grandmother, Mary Souliere. I am so proud to be a member and a Councillor of Michipicoten First Nation.
I am 61 years old, a mother of two and a nana of two. I am very proud of my two children and their accomplishments. They have worked hard and put in long days to be successful in their careers. My daughter is a proud officer of the OPP. She has been with them for 18 years. My son works for Imperial Oil out in Alberta where he is a Heavy Equipment Operator and a Driving Instructor.
My husband Del is a mechanic who is now doing his dream job for Jones Power Sports in Wawa. He is also retired from the Army Reserves in Sault Ste Marie after serving 20 years. That was something he loved doing. I graduated from Sault College with a degree in Health Care. I also worked for Wesdome Eagle River Mines where I put in 10 years of cooking. Now, I am retired and enjoying life as a counsellor, grandmother, wife and mother.
