    A wonderful lady who will always have a special place in my heart! Her smile and laugh were contagious. I have so many fun memories with Janet….Jazzercise in the late 80s, shopping at Target, her endless care packages in college, shopping at Target, that awesome white sting ray corvette, Byerly’s wild rice soup, surprise visits while working at Marshall’s, lunches downtown, shopping at Target, movies, generous gift giver, and so much more through wonderful Christmas cards with notes through 2012. You will be missed, Janet. Love, Ker Bear

    My godmother was the funniest, most outgoing and greatest person that I have been blessed to know. My Mom and Dad choose well to have Janet and Tom to be my godparents, and when I was chosen to be a godparent I tried my best to honor them by following in their footsteps. Janet, I’ll miss you.

  3. Patty and Mike Schoff says:

    So sorry to hear about Janet. She was always fabulous, fun, and caring. I remember her as full of life, quick to laugh, and someone who always saw something good in others. Heaven will be a better place for having Janet.
