Janet Elizabeth Centa passed away peacefully on July 20, 2020, at the age of 78. Beloved wife of Tony Centa. Loving mother of Robert Centa and Stephen Centa (Andrea Centa). Dear grandmother of Jack and Charlie Hilton-Centa and sister of Craig Peterkin. Predeceased by her parents Bob and Elizabeth Peterkin.

Janet made a meaningful contribution to her community in many ways. A kind and generous woman, she taught in various capacities in the York Region District School Board and spent countless hours volunteering in school breakfast programs and in the Richmond Hill United Church.

Thank you to all of the staff and doctors at MacKenzie Health and Brookside Court for their excellent care over the past four months.

Cremation has occurred and no celebration of Janet’s life is planned at this time due to the ongoing risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. In lieu of flowers, Janet’s family prefers donations in her memory to the Richmond Hill United Church or Parkinson Canada.

Tony, we were so saddened to hear of Janet’s passing. As you know we worked together at RHUC..99% of the time in the kitchen. I always considered her a friend and enjoyed her company.
Her last few years were a struggle I know and not just for her but for you and the family.
She is at rest and may all of your wonderful memories help you and the boys at this difficult time.
Keith and Janet

Dear Tony & family,
I learned about the passing of Janet, the love of your life, from Domenic. I am so sorry for your loss. May God bless her soul and give your family strength at this difficult time. May she rest in peace. May memories of her linger and comfort you and yours, as well as those she touched with her spirit. She will always have a place in your hearts and minds, and her legacy will be cherished by those she taught and helped in her community. When the time is right, hope to see you soon again Tony.
