Ilona Janoschek: 23 Year-Long Donor to Mission Services of London Celebrates 98th Birthday

Ilona Janoschek, September 8, 2023

Mission Services of London went to visit Ilona Janoschek to wish her a happy 98th birthday, and to thank her for the donations made by her and her late husband, Klaus Janoschek, to Mission Services of London for over 23 years.

Immigrating to Canada in 1955, Ilona said that her passion for Mission Services of London lies within her own memories of being hungry and in need of help from generous strangers.

Ilona and Klaus donated their clothing to Mission Store whenever they could. Ilona, often handmaking their clothing at the time, said Klaus felt strongly about passing on his gently-used items to those who needed it most.

Even when there was no clothing to donate, Ilona recalls herself and Klaus remembering Mission Services of London by sending monthly monetary donations.

Mission Services of London is honoured to have had the support from Ilona and Klaus since 2001, and to have celebrated with Ilona in welcoming her 98th year.

Mission Services of London is grateful for the generosity and support of all it’s donors. Thank you.
