Our deepest condolences to Janet's family and friends. We will miss her on our road, going by with Sebastien's head sticking out the truck window. She was truly someone who loved Nature and enjoyed being out in the forests, lakes, bogs and trails. The world needs more people like her. We hope she has found a soft cushion of moss to sleep on, under a giant pine tree.

Janet,
When Zakk & I came to the Bear River Health Clinic often through out the years you were always so very loving & kind with us. You shared your fun & beautiful memories with us & your outdoor adventures. (which we enjoyed, appreciated & loved so very much). Your love & appreciation for God's creation bonded us from day one. Our dream was to take you to White Sand Lake someday as I know that was your dream too! Even though we never made it, I will never go there again without thinking of you.
Janet you will always be loved & forever missed until we meet again ♡ .......

Our sincere condolences to Mike, Jason, and all of Janet's siblings:
Janet was a very strong woman and I admired how she used this strength to help so many others, never asking for a thing in return. Many mornings we walked to school together, laughing, kicking the dry leaves, just being kids. Such fond memories of a fantastic childhood in Bear River, growing up together, attending youth groups, dances at the Legion for the teenagers, and who can forget the many hours at the skating rink. As young people we were blessed to grow up with so many good friends, Janet being a wonderful friend to so many of us. May the family find comfort in sweet memories of their youngest sister and friend. Thank you Wendy for your love and devotion to Janet as you guided her through these last, very difficult months of her life. May God's presence surround all of you with love, comfort and peace. Our love and prayers Gloria and Leigh
