Jan E. Pritiko, 58, wife, mother and daughter, and dear friend to all. Jan peacefully passed away surrounded by her family on April 23, 2019, in London Ontario. Jan was born in Strathroy Ontario and grew up in London. She was an extremely talented graphic designer, owning her own business after graduating from Conestoga College, but her true passions were her family and friends. Jan sought to instill the simple joys in life, the happiness of her two sons and husband John. She always knew the power of warmth, compassion and a loving smile. These traits were recognized in Jan by all those who grew to know and love her. Hold her close to your heart and spirit as we will always do.
Jan is lovingly remembered by her husband John Pritiko, sons Mathew John, his wife Anne-Marie, and Jameson Spencer and Jacqui Palef. Dear daughter of Donald and Sheila McNeill and sister of John and Sheri McNeill and James McNeill. Loving aunt to Jason and Reid. Predeceased by her grandmother Dorothy McTavish.
Visitation on Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 pm at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St at Richmond. Respecting Jan’s wishes, a private family service will take place. Cremation has taken place. Interment St. John’s Cemetery, Arva, at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.

When we met 40 yrs ago when I was in Grade 9 at A.B. Lucas S.S. your warmth and compassion made an impression on me then and it still does today. You have always been able to make everyone you meet feel “special” and that is how you made me feel. You always gave of yourself without ever asking anything in return...I only wish I could have given you more. It is a privilege to have been able to have you call me a friend. God Bless you Jan....your friend Barbara
