To the family of Janet, I have known Janet a long time and I am saddened to learn of her passing.

I was so saddened to hear of Janet’s passing. I worked with Janet for many years as a fellow rural mail carrier. We were all one big family. She was always eager to talk about her kids & grandkids. She loved her family very much. My sympathy & prayers for her family as you grieve the passing of your loved one.

I first met Janet when we were both in the ninth grade as we were on the same Vanoss bus route. She was always a kind, sweet and considerate young woman. I am so very sorry to hear of her passing.

Sweet Janet, you are missed. So glad for our shared memories. Baths in a wash tub, walking down the alley to buy a bag full of penny candy, cigars, great food, cherry trees, throwing rocks at a snake that knew how to cuss🥴, volleyball, bingo, horseshoes, riding to get ice cream with our good looking uncle, and lots of laughter! Praying for God’s comfort & strength for your family. Love, Susie & Darrel
