Janet E. Queen Ault
October 04, 1926 ‒ March 17, 2012
Janet Ault knew that love was much more than an affectionate feeling, but also a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good. The bright pink wishing well she kept in her flower gardens helped keep her mind positive – and her prayers active – for her family and friends.
On a prank, her wishing well was “stolen,” only to appear at the fire station. Everyone in Johnsville knew it belonged to Janet, and that it belonged back in her flower beds – promptly.
Janet now tends celestial flowers – in God’s garden – as she passed to her eternal reward Saturday morning March 17, 2012 from Woodside Village in Mt. Gilead. She was 85.
Born October 4, 1926 in Mt. Vernon, to Allen F. and Nina (Dudding) Queen, she was graduated from Johnsville High School and Dr. Brown’s School for Lab Technicians.
She worked at Aultman Hospital in Canton and Mansfield General Hospital. With 26 years of service, she retired in 1991 from Northmor Schools as a bus driver.
Janet will be remembered for her stunning flower gardens, love for her family, and her perseverance to finish every job “done right.”
She is survived by her daughter Linda Davis of Marion; her son Christopher (Teresa) Ault of Mansfield; grandchildren Heather Ault, Jennifer and Steve Spitler, Steven Davis, II, and Andrew & April Davis; great grandchildren Alexandra, Lane and Bridie Spitler, Ashton, Aaliyah and AnneMarie Davis; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 57 years William Henry Ault, Jr.; her twin brother Kenneth Queen; a brother Lyle Queen; half sisters Ruth Beck and Margaret Queen and a half brother Harold Queen.
Her family will receive friends on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 from 5-8 pm in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home, where her funeral service will be held Wednesday at 11 am. The Rev. Dr. Michael V. Stine will officiate. Burial will follow in Shauck Cemetery.
Memorial contributions to Clear Fork Alliance Church or Hospice of Morrow County may be made at the funeral home.
