I am so sorry for your loss. Janet was smart, funny, and so lively that I somehow thought she would always be around. I'll miss her.

Dear Janet's Family ~ I was SO deeply saddened to learn of Janet's passing...we were nursing classmates at Kankakee Community College and later worked together in the operating room after graduation. We were close friends and as life happens, we drifted apart in different circles. I have searched for Janet over the years, not knowing how to find her as I only knew her by her married name. My sincere deepest sympathies to all of you and I pray for comfort and strength for you at this difficult time. God bless ~ Shari (Jones) Ebert, Kankakee, IL

My deepest sympathy to Janet's family. We were classmates for 12 years (Limestone & Herscher). Unfortunately we lost contact over the years. It is comforting to see the many accomplishments, travel opportunities, and love of family that she experienced over the years. I hope that the memories of these milestones will be a comfort to you also.

Janet and I talked frequently about the fun that she had working at Joanne's. It was a fun and creative opportunity for her after many years in the technical business. Thank you and the Joanne's team there for all your support and joy in the last months of her life. We are heartbroken, but are helped along by your message.
