  • Janet was a kind & thoughtful person. She noticed at a classmate luncheon that I was very sad that day. I had earlier admired her beautiful, new red watch. She offered me her new watch to make me smile & wouldn’t take no for an answer. I have cherished the watch ever since & will never forget her loving kindness. Wishing Myrna & Janet’s family peace & that you meet her in heaven someday. Love, a Johnnie classmate,

  • Janet was a dear friend of mine for our senior year in high school. I am sorry to hear of her passing and send my condolences to the family. I was always jealous of her perfect hair!

  • Janet was not only loving, kind and caring but was also much fun. She always knew how to make you smile and her physical appearance was nothing short of meticulous. Janet wore many pretty and cute outfits, her hair forever lovely. I will ALWAYS associate flip flops with her for the rest of my life. Janet was a hard worker and wasn’t afraid to offer help, giving nothing less than 150+%. She was quick to help someone in need regardless of the expense to her own self. I will surely miss her but know she is now an angel among the angels. I loved her so dearly. Janet, you were a point of light on earth, and will continue to shine down on all of us who were blessed to be your friend. Rest In Peace my dearest friend, loved you much.

  • Hello everyone. I am so saddened to hear about Janet. She was always a good friend and I could catch up on all the news whenever I went to “Beauty Box” We were in CCL together in the early years. It has been some time since I talked to her. Did not
    know she was ill. She was a fun person and very caring to her ladies. I will miss her a lot. May you find comfort in knowing so many were touched by her spirit and generous nature. Bette Roberts

  • Sorry to hear about your mom. She was a lady with a lot of spunk.She never took any crap off of us. She was so much fun.

  • Mryna and Lori ,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Janet was like a mom to me. Our families were very close when we were growing up.
    When I saw her in April was heart warming for me. Janet was an amazing woman.
    God Bless you

  • Please accept my sincere condolences. May you find real comfort in the wonderful hope of the resurrection. God always keeps His promises. John 5:28-29, Psalms 37:9-11, Titus 1:2, Rec. 21:4

  • I can’t put into words how much I am going to miss Janet! Lori and Myrna I am so sorry for your loss. Janet was my second Mom, she did my hair when I was younger and she is the one that inspired me to become a beautician. She gave me 2 angels after my accident that I carry with me every day! Now Mom Janet you are the Brightest Guardian Angel in the Sky!!! Love 💘 you Always!

  • Lori and Myrna,
    Was so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. I believe the last time I saw her was at my mom’s funeral. I will let Cathy know Lori. I just saw her Saturday. She lives in Indy now.
    I always enjoyed talking to your mom, she was a funny one and crazy at times! I’m sure she will be missed.
