Janeen was born in Kalispell, Montana to Faye and Leeroy Marsh and spent her childhood years in the picturesque Flathead Valley.

During these years, Janeen worked a variety of jobs in the Claresholm area before giving birth to her daughter Megan in 1989. In 1990 the family relocated to Lethbridge before moving again to Edmonton in 1992. While in Lethbridge Janeen and Douglas welcomed their second child, Brandele.
In 2007, Janeen and her family moved to a farm near Pense, SK where she enjoyed spending time with her family, trying out new recipes, and caring for a menagerie of animals. Over the next thirteen years Janeen initially worked for the City of Regina before becoming a vital employee in the Faculty of Business Administration Office at the University of Regina. While at the University, Janeen continued her education completing a Certificate in Local Government Authority.
Janeen will always be remembered for her kind nature, incredible work ethic, and giving spirit. She was someone who managed to bring a little magic into the world and always had time for her family and friends; working tirelessly to ensure her family and pets were cared for. She will also be remembered as the ‘animal-whisperer,’ who took in any and all animals in need. Janeen offered her charges the same selfless, loving care that was the cornerstone of her character.
