So many sweet memories of Janet attending school together, sharing about our families and keeping watch over each other on Facebook. Many of us use social media to pray and care for others. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers. I pray God's peace comforts you. Janet is with her beloved Lord and beloved Randy. I will miss her đź’”

I will sure miss my friend Janet. We met through Randy and immediately hit it off. Some of the things I will fondly remember about Janet is when she and Randy came to PA to visit us. They came prepared to make us an authentic Cajun meal of gumbo. Janet also wanted to make us a “smashed potato salad” that she said they always ate with their gumbo. She and I made a trip to the grocery store to pick up the correct ingredients. It was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. To this very day I often make the smashed potato salad and think of my Duhon friends every time that I prepare it. Janet, her daughter and grandson did a “road trip” a couple of years ago and once again we got to visit with her and meet Michelle and Shawn. We kept them busy during their stay and we all had a fun time.
Janet and I often spoke on the phone and I will always remember our very last conversation just days before her surgery. She told me that she no longer could go on feeling the way that she felt and was ready to face the impending risky surgery and it’s possible complications. She said she would place her trust in the Lord. Over the years that I’ve known her I learned that she had great faith. She also told me of her plans once she had recovered from her surgery. It is looking forward and having plans that keep us going…even though we know that our plans and God’s plans for us might not be the same. Unfortunately we learned that God did indeed have other plans. It is hard to believe that she is gone. It is hard to believe that I will no longer hear her voice again. But Janet will always live on in my memory and heart…as she will live on in her daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren and great grandchild. My heart is broken for her family…and they will have our continued prayers for strength during these difficult days ahead. God Bless You All!
Love,
Miss Mary (as Janet always called me) and Ron

So many wonderful memories with a beautiful devoted, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Her talents are too numerous to mention. She had a beautiful smile and never a harsh word passed her lips. Memories: Her recipe for soup that her coworkers will never forget. Her phone call stating, "Hello God, It's Me, Margaret" left me laughing for hours. My most precious memory will be our last conversation on Tuesday, the day before her surgery. She was at peace and accepted whatever God had in store for her. We shared "I love you" at the end of our conversation and she promised to visit Ohio in the summer.
Thank you, Janet, for all the memories. You will never be forgotten.

Janet was the first person I met when I started at CPSB. She trained me to be the best clerk that I could be. Along the way, she became a dear friend. I will never forget the countless lunches that we shared. I consider myself blessed to have had this lovely lady as a part of my life.
