With a heavy heart ♥️ I was so saddened by the passing of Janet. We grew up together at
Catholic School & High School. We even rode the bus home together sharing stories of school.
Every time we got to see each other we would laugh & tell stories of the good ole days.
She will be missed & never forgotten!!
Asking God to give you comfort at this sad time
with the Cherished Memories you all dear.
God Bless You All~~~~~~

Harvey and I were very lucky to meet Janet and Bill on the Rybak Tour of 2019. Janet was so very full of life and shared that with all of us. We enjoyed talking with Bill and Janet.
Prayers to the Darilek Family. 🙏🏻

We have such wonderful memories from travels to Europe with the Rybak tours. So much to laugh about and sharing stories about ranching and wonderful country living. Janet was special and we will always remember her. Hers was a life well lived. Continue her legacy. God is good.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Bill and rest of the Darilek family. Janet was my cousin. There were about 3-5 of us that were the oldest Jemelka cousins. Over the years, many more cousins came along. Our families visited often so we grew up together. I worked at Uncle Alphonse farm many summers, so got to know Joseph and Janet like brother and sister. In November this year, my sister Doris and I had the good fortune to visit with Janet and Joan for one afternoon. How grateful I am the visit occurred. She was as nice and friendly as always and we had a very good visit. Little did we know that in a month she would be gone. I feel so sad, and feel so sorry for the family. May she rest in peace.

Janet (momma Janet) was the only reason I was able to be a working mom !!! I knew my kids were loved and very well taken care . She was ALWAYS joyful and smiling every morning when I brought my brood to her , sometimes pretty dang early ... right Bill ?? Carried my son inside and laid him on there couch til he finally woke up . All my kids loved her and have wonderful memories from all of you .
I considered Janet and good friend and we continued to keep in touch and visit throughout the years ..... not never enough!!......... but my heart is so sad that your family is without her . I know without a doubt she is in a wonderful place because she was a God send to me and many . I will miss her
