Janet C. VanAntwerp
February 10, 1944 ‒ May 03, 2016
Formerly of Sunbury, Ohio
Janet VanAntwerp, age 72 of Delaware, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday morning May 3, 2016, as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
She was born on February 10, 1944 in Yale, Michigan to the late Edward and Doris Marthen. After graduating from the Yale High School in 1962, she married her fifth grade sweetheart Robert VanAntwerp. Having grown up across the field from each other, together they went on to share 52 years raising a family and sharing in the wonders of life. Sadly Bob passed away on November 21, 2015.
In addition to being a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother, Janet first worked as keeper of the record book for the US Trotting Association. She went on to work as a clerical secretary for Attorney Joe Schilder, in the customer service department with NCR, and finally as a manual proof reader for Emerson.
Nearing the mark as a 3,000 hour volunteer, she enjoyed volunteering at Source Point in Delaware, helping wherever was needed, especially delivering Meals on Wheels. Described as a sweet woman and always with a smile on her face, Janet’s greatest enjoyment was her grandchildren and their sports from basketball, volleyball, motor cross and lacrosse. Janet also loved camping for the winter at Myrtle Beach or in Florida with Robert.
She enjoyed line dancing, NASCAR, working jig saw puzzles, playing Sudoku, and crafts of all types. One never with idle hands, she was described as a feisty red head, who with a wink was never wrong. Accepting of all, she was always there with her loving and nurturing ways.
Left to cherish her memory is her daughter LeAnne Hauger of Delaware; son Scott (Sheryl) VanAntwerp of Delaware; grandchildren William Baker, Jesse Hauger (Janae), Shana VanAntwerp and Shannon VanAntwerp (Kevin Boyster); many other family members and friends.
In addition to her parents and husband she was also preceded in death by her brother Edward Marthen.
