Janelle ShorttawardAdditional LanguagesEnglish

Janelle ShorttI’m a friendly, caring, high-energy individual with a terrific sense of humour; one of my favorite things is meeting new people. Married to my husband and long-time partner for many years; we have a son and two beautiful granddaughters. I retired in 2014 from the Ministry of the Attorney General where I was a Court Reporter. Living just outside of Owen Sound on the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay with our only baby still left at home, Sassy, an 80-pound Doberman who thinks she is a lapdog. In my spare time, I sing bass with a woman’s barbershop chorus for 20 years and am also part of a quartet with the same group. Music has always been a large part of my life and it isn’t unusual to hear me singing away. I have a passion for sewing, gardening, stained glass creations, decorating and most of all being Grandma. I would love to have the opportunity to officiate at your non-denominational or spiritual wedding ceremony and know I can help make your day a truly exceptional and memorable experience.
