The first time I saw you, Janet, was at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show in 2000 or 2001, I forget which, exactly, but you and Joe were dressed in traditional buckskin and posing with the native plants exhibit that recreated a woodland scene from the time of the first European contact era.
Later, after joining Midwest SOARRING, I had the chance to work with you and Joe directly on a number of projects, mostly Powwow related. Your dedication and love for SOARRING and your ability to organize so effectively along with your humor and compassion will always stand out in my mind.
You've earned your rest in the arms of the angels and may precious memories comfort Joe and all who were lucky enough to know and love you.
(I just found this this evening or I would have stopped by the visitation. Can't bring myself to say goodbye, so will just say "until we meet again".)

Janet, you will be greatly missed by your friends at Riverside United Methodist Church. Thank you and Chief Joseph for your teachings about Native American culture. We were glad to see you at the PowWow looking so happy to be doing what you love (photo attached).

I’ve been out of the loop for a while and was stunned to hear of Janet’s passing. What a blessing to have married the love of her life. My sincerest sympathy to her friends and family, especially Joe. My heart hurts for you all.
