An Update Regarding COVID-19 

We would like to reassure our families that Bergeron’s will continue to remain open to serve our communities during this time of uncertainty. We are striving to keep our community, our families, and our staff safe. 

The government has taken measures to limit public gatherings to very small groups, and we are trying to ensure that the number of people entering the funeral home remains within those guidelines. We ask our families to please call before coming in, so we can provide you with information and options in regards to the funeral arrangement and safety for all.

Thank you,

From all of us at Bergeron Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd.

Jan was born November 27, 1947 in Glasglow, Scotland to Sam and Sarah Schofield. Jan was the youngest of five following her brothers, Sam, James, Billy and Ian.

Jan immigrated to Canada in 1968. Jan met the love of her life Gary Powell on July 7, 1971. Jan and Gary welcomed Chuck into their family August 28, 1975 in Mississauga ON. The family moved to Dawson Creek in 1979 and founded Pipeline Motors Ltd.

Jan was always a sunray of spirit and energy when I first met her while getting my jeep services decades ago and as a community care RN visiting her a few years ago. Her strength and goodwill will be remembered. My best to the family.

I’m so sorry to hear this news. I worked with Jan @ Norweld Supply a very long time ago. I still remember they had a Jeep and their goat loved to ride around with them. Deepest condolences to the family.
