My favorite memories of Janet were her on the farm she had. She loved horses and riding. My sons first ride on a horse was at Janet’s. She also loved Halloween and dancing. I will remember her from the happiness and energy of our youth growing up. She was a good friend and amazing woman. Rest in peace Janet.
Janet was one of the most courageous & caring people I’ve ever met! She was so much fun to be with throughout the many years I’ve known her in spite of her struggles with health issues during these last years. Her family was most important to her, & she always had their welfare at heart. Even in the face of death, she put them first. Good times at Firefighters’ outings when she was young & healthy & later the retirement parties which she attended &.enjoyed even as she experienced many challenges. My heart goes out to all of Janet’s family. I pray the wonderful memories of good family times will keep them close to Janet’s spirit. May God bless you all & comfort you. May your faith, family, & friends give you the strength you need in the days ahead. Love you so very much!!
Janet had admirable tenacity and strength. She battled diabetes – an insidious disease – head on. So many fond memories at the farm, the trail ride in Kenosha, sharing stories w/a fellow horsewoman, the haunted houses and all of the family activities. Over the years, many prayers were sent up and many candles lit for Janet; now, she is healthy and whole in Heaven. My heart goes out to Janet’s family, friends, and all who loved her.
