Janetta L. Weikle

December 03, 1965 ‒ March 01, 2017

Lucas, Ohio

Janetta L. Weikle passed away Wednesday, March 1, 2017 in Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center surrounded by her family after a 19 year battle with Cancer. She was 51.

She was born December 3, 1965 to parents Emery & Jill (Wilson) Fryman in Marion, Ohio. Janetta later graduated from Lexington High School with the class of 1984, and went on to work for the Internal Revenue Service. She later became a paralegal for Donaldson Law offices in Mansfield before ending employment due to her courageous battle fighting cancer.

As a child growing up Janetta was heavily involved in 4-H showing Arabian horses. Later in life she truly enjoyed being in and near the water, whether it was near the ocean in Florida walking the beaches of Anna Maria Island, boating and skiing at Pleasant Hill Lake or spending time in the clear waters of Tygart Lake in West Virginia. Janetta also loved to fish. But above all she cherished spending time with her kids and grandkids.

Janetta was a strong woman, mother, and friend to all and was always there to help and had such big heart for anyone who came into her life. Saying Janetta was a fighter was an understatement because throughout her 19 long years of never giving up she would always say “I will never stop fighting because I have too much to live for” and she did just that.

She is survived by her children Kolby (Beth) Weikle and Kelsey (Arlie Ward) Weikle; and her grandchildren Grace, Addison, Bailey, and Grayson.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son Kolton Weikle.

Although no public service will be held in Janetta’s memory, her family hopes that you will hold her in your heart as you remember her in your own special way.
