I loved Janis very much and always enjoyed being with her. We always saw each other at the video poker machines and had fun playing them. She was very lucky at video poker and I always told her I wanted her to teach me how to play it. It dosen't seem the same without Janis and I will miss her very much and think of her often.

So sorry to hear of Janis's passing. We knew her only briefly as a neighbor on Yawkey Lake. We always enjoyed her summer visit and the pontoon ride she looked forward to. Our sympathy goes out to her family, may you find comfort in your memories, knowing how special she indeed was.

Bruce and Vonnie were saddened upon the news of the passing of our long-time neighbor. We shall remember Jan as a very pleasant person and good conversationalist. So glad she had a wonderful trip to Oregon before this trip into eternity to again enjoy her daughter and granddaughter.

Janis Vera Nemeth, 83, died suddenly at her home in Bullhead City, Arizona on December 13, 2012.
Janis was born to Arthur Harpley Mayes and Vera Hertha Ottilie Annie Bretall in Oak Park, Illinois on April 22, 1929. She graduated from Oak Park's Proviso High School in the spring of 1947, and married Louis Anthony Nemeth on September 14, 1947. Louis and Janis moved around some when he was in the army, and they settled in Barrington, Illinois where they raised their children, David Arthur and Melissa Ann. After Louis' passing in 1977, and the big snowstorm the winter of 1978, Janis moved to El Cajon, California in 1979. She moved fulltime to Bullhead City, Arizona in 1993, where she enjoyed knitting, sewing, bird watching, and traveling. As a trivia buff, she also enjoyed watching Jeopardy and playing board games, which kept her mind sharp.
Janis was predeceased by her parents; husband; and brothers Warren Bretall, John Arthur (Jack), and Thomas Kingston Mayes. She is survived by her son David Arthur (Lori) Nemeth; daughter Melissa Ann (Tony) Piscitello; grandchildren Jarik Thomas and Ariel Lyn Nemeth, and Antonina Louisa Piscitello; nieces Diedre Mayes Koik and Marta Yolanda Hatter; nephews Warren Shawn Mayes, Edward Charles Meuller III, and Warren Kingston and John Christopher Mayes; and many great nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at Grace Community Church, Gresham, Oregon on Saturday, December 29, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Grandma Jan will be sorely missed.
