Janet was a devoted homemaker who always gave of her time and her heart. She lived by example and imparted valuable life lessons to her children. She was selfless in the care giving of her son, Matt. She adored her grandchildren and spoiled them with her humor, wisdom and love. In her leisure time, Janet enjoyed reading, working crossword puzzles and watching Cardinals games. Janet will be greatly missed but has left an eternal imprint on our hearts.
