She attended Ashland Brethren in Christ Church and thoroughly enjoyed Paster Keith Tyson's sermons and his visits with her while she resided at Brethren Care.
Janet worked in the office at Faultless following graduation. After the birth of her cherished daughter. she became a full-time homemaker. She loved her family and her Lord. She read through the entire Bible many times and enjoyed bowling and embroidery. Janet was a kind, gentle, and loving soul who never missed an opportunity to send a card for any occasion and let someone know how special they were to her. While her family will miss her terribly, their belief in God's promise to see her again one day will comfort and sustain them.
