  1. Janet and I attended the Toby United Methodist Church. For ten years I lived within a few miles from where Janet was born and raised. She always enjoyed talking with me about “the hill” and who lived there. If she had been able I believe she would have moved back there in a heart beat. I pray the Lord allows here to visit “the hill.” Rest in Peace.

  2. I loved visiting Aunt Janet growing up when she lived in Kersey. She reminded me so much of my Dad. She loved going up on the hill and having her camper there. May she have an endless supply of time now on that hill. You’re going to be so missed. Love you Aunt Janet!

  3. I remember as a teenager going to Aunt Janet’s house with my gramma and making homemade fresh pasta noodles. During covid, she stayed with me for a little while. She absolutely loved animals and my cats were no exception. We would play classic country song quiz and do her word search books. She sure liked her sweets. May you get an endless supply now.

  4. Melody, my sincere condolences on the passing of your mom. Keeping you all in thoughts and prayers

  5. Melody, so sorry for your loss
