We are so very sorry to hear of Janet’s passing. She was a very thoughtful and caring lady. She had a great sense of humor and enjoyed life. Janet was the President of our Milton Baptist Ladies Auxiliary for many years and we missed her when she wasn’t there. Janet made date squares for my husband Paul many times. They were the best. Our thoughts are with her family.

of. Rest in Peace Janet. Glad to call her my friend

Miss Cameron was my first teacher when I moved to Liverpool. In the middle of the year she became Mrs Dagley. My mom taught across the hall and they were great friends. Wonderful teacher and friend. She always had a smile and time for a talk. RIP my friend.
Janet was my Grade 4 teacher , When she moved to Milton in later years I got to know her as a friend .She was a great community volunteer in the Milton Hall and Baptist Church We all will miss her .Sincerely Peggy Hatt
So sorry for the family’s loss of such a kind, wonderful lady. I had her as a Grade 4 teacher and also bowled with her for many years, and I believe she was treasurer for our league for a good many of those years. She always had a smile. Before she moved away, would always see her at the Transcotia Restaurant with Marg Fisher enjoying their meal. Rest easy Janet
Janet was such a lovely lady and I am so glad I got to know her through Gorham Chapter I.O.D.E. Liverpool. Sincerely Diane Munro.

To Janet’s family.
As a child, Janet was my teacher. Years later, as an adult, we moved to Milton where I came in contact with Janet again through the Milton Baptist Church. We worked together on the executive of different groups becoming good friends. Our friendship grew over the years and I considered Janet a dear, close friend. We certainly miss her at the church & in the community where she will be remembered forever. . I think of her every time I drive by her old house on highway 8.
Please accept my deepest condolences.
We were so sorry to hear about Janet’s passing.You are in our thoughts and prayers.
From a fellow teacher,
Ann and Derhyk Wolfe
I am so sorry to hear that Janet has passed away. I will always remember Janet for her kind heart, her hugs of encouragement, and her young-at-heart personality. She was an inspiration to me and I will miss her very much.
However, knowing that Janet is now with the Lord who she served for so many years comforts me, as I know that we will meet again, when the time comes for the Lord to call me Home. I can just picture Janet’s warm smile and open arms when she sees me coming!
May Janet’s family take comfort in the fact that although Janet is no longer with you physically, her spirit is very much alive and she is rejoicing with all of her friends and family members who have gone on before her, and watching over you with love.
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Was sorry to read about Janet’s passing. She was an old friend of my mothers. They went to teachers college together and I was named after her. (My middle name) My mothers name was Shirley (Dearmond) Kennedy.
My Mum passed away almost 8years ago and I often wondered about Janet. I wish I had known that she was in Cederstone as I live not that far from there. My condolences to her family.
To the family of Janet Dagley,
Mrs. Dagley was my Grade 4 teacher many years ago. She was very strict, which was often the norm in those days, but we certainly finished the year proficient in the curriculum. As an adult, she always stopped to chat whenever our paths crossed . She had such a sharp mind and seemed to never forget her former students.
May she rest in peace and may her family and friends find comfort in the memories .
