  1. My sympathy to Janet’s family. My favorite memory of Janet, my cousin, is at our Grandparents Farm on JoJo Road, having a little picnic with her when I was about 6 years old and playing on the farm….now I’m in my 80’s. RIP Janet….

  2. Alan and family, so sorry for your loss. Last time I saw Jan was when I was taking care of Aunt Millie. We laugh and cried talking about the great memories of the neighborhood. I am sure she is with your dad and the neighbors enjoying a game of “bean bags”. She was like a mom as we’re all the moms of the neighborhood. She will be missed by so many of us. So many memories. Prayers for you and your family.

  3. Alan, Jean and family I am so sorry for your loss. Janet was such a sweet lady. I used to see her at your Dad’s grave so often. Hope you can take comfort they are together again.

  4. Alan and Jean,
    You have our deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom. Prayers for comfort and peace.

  5. Sorry for your loss. Janet was a friend of my parents (Marlene and Chuck Klaiber). Every time I seen her she always remembered me she was such a sweet lady. Prayers for comfort and peace.

  6. We’re so sorry for your loss. May you all be comforted by the good memories you have and by God’s grace. Love, the Stevens family

  7. Many fond memories to cherish.

  8. Love and prayers for comfort and peace,
    Love, Paul and Stacy
