Memories Timeline


  1. Glenn and I are grateful for the love, care and sacrifice shown by Janet’s extensive family during her illness.

    Janet’s sweet, kind nature and genuine smile made an impact on all she came to meet. She loved her family and expressed it when they were together.

    Even when she was unable to communicate with words, her eyes would light up at her childrens visits.

    She was greatly loved and will be missed.

  2. We are so sorry that Jan has left us. To Mike and to Jan’s children: you have been so faithful in caring for her for these many years, she was blessed. She and Sarah are smiling upon you from Heaven.

  3. Dear Mike and Family,
    We are so sorry to hear about Jan’s passing. Jan was so blessed with love and with your care. May she Rest In Peace. And may the support of family and friends provide you comfort. You are in our prayers.
    Chuck and Kathy Simko Babich

  4. My beautiful sister, Janet, who always put others first in everything. Especially her family. She was loving and generous, a wonderful cook, and a magical baker. Thank you to everyone who cared for her, and showed your love for her. Pray for us, Janet.

  5. Mike and Family: Our memories of Jan are joyful, She was a wonderful and loving person. She loved her Lord and now is at rest is His arms.. Love in Christ,

  6. Family of Jan,
    So sorry to hear the loss of Jan. May you find comfort in each other and the Lord.
    Thoughts and prayers for you during this difficult time.

  7. I am saddened to hear of Janet’s death. I hope you all enjoy your memories of her in the days and years ahead.

  8. Mike and family,

    Although Doris and I never met Janet we could tell from the way Mike talked about and cared for her that she was deeply loved! Mike, please forgive me for not coming to the funeral but I’m having some problems with my MS so Doris is my proxy. Beside that, Doris speaks better Spanish than I do. After everything settles down give us a call and we’ll get together! We love ya!

  9. I didn’t know Janet personally but I am very sorry for the pain you, her family and friends, are experiencing. At these sad moments, I reflect on the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. There it says our God and Father and his son Jesus comfort us during trials, so that we can comfort others during any sort of trial. Certainly, the loss of a dear loved one is the most difficult trial. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.
