Janet had a profound influence on so many people she met. She was a mother to me and to so many of my friends. She took me to tournaments as a kid in Iowa and in Arizona. I spent my afternoons when we got out of school at the Hutchison’s house and she fed me like she was one of her own kids. She and her family would give you the shirt of their back to help out anyone. I am so sorry to hear of her passing, your family will be in my thoughts.

Met Jan 50 years ago Monday. We were in the hospital at the same time Troy and my son Scott were born. Lived only a block down from her and Donny and we became close friends. I could see her living room window from my bedroom window, and if the shade was down don't call as she didn't want company at that time. She did my hair for many years, our children played together, she taught me to crochet and we had many good times just visiting. Lost track of her when they moved to Arizona, but never forgot her. Then came along Facebook and we found each other again. She is going to be missed, but I will never forget her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family

There are so many fond memories of visiting Jan, Don and family when my brother and I were growing up. It was good my mom was such good friends with them . We always had fun playing over there. And Jan was always so kind to us🥰 She'll be missed and not soon forgotten. Bless you and your family. It's never easy losing the ones we love. 🥰❣️

Jan was a mom to me when I needed one. I told her several times how grateful I am for her taking me in. Even as I got older, she said she was there if i needed her and the door was always open. Thank you for sharing your mom with me and letting me a part of your family!

My deepest condolences, Troy. I know she left the world better than she found it.
