I am so very sorry for the loss of your mom. She was such a wonderful neighbor to us- loving and accepting our daughter when we adopted her. She was always there with a smile and willingness to do anything she could to help you. We will remember her always for her love she showed to us. Be proud she was your mom and that she loved the Lord. May God comfort the family as you go through this difficult time. Praying for you all!

My sincere condolences to Janet's family. I worked with her at Big Wheel and would talk to her often at K-Mart. She had a very caring and kind heart. I enjoyed her laugh and when she smiled.

My sincere sympathy to the family in this time of sorrow. May Janet rest in peace. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May God be with you. Love, Uncle Mike

Janet was such a sweetheart, a generous and thoughtful person. We were friends with her at Altercare. Wanted to go see her I'd the quarantine was ever lifted.

My grandma was an amazing person I will deeply miss her sending prayers to my family at this time I love you

Janet and I became close phone friends during the last 2 years. Several times Mary and had also visited her in Wadsworth. Our phone conversations included sharing our Christian faith, laughing over many issues, getting to know each other's families and their histories......talking about Neal Drive in Wooster where she lived for many years, across the street from my sister Mary. Janet was a bright loving observant woman. I feel honored and blessed that I got to know her as well as I did and am confidant she is with the Lord now, enjoying the comforts of His presence. My love and mercies to the family as you adjust to life without Janet.

I am sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. I remember getting to know your mom back in the late 70's. It was always a pleasure speaking with her.

As we lay my Mom to rest today, I reflect back on how wonderful, my Mom was, and the sacrifices she made for her children, and all the wonderful impacts, she made on people's lives. I can not thank all of her friends, neighbors, and family enough, for all the help, love and support, they have given to my Mom, and helping hands, of her being A single Mother, raising, three children. Even after her children were all grown up, and all their own, everyone, was always still there for her, all the way till the end. You all are so awesome. All our Love to all of you, and again Thank You. She is with her family and friends in Heaven now. And ya doing her loving dance. Even though we will miss Her, here on earth, one day we will all be together again. Love you all, And I Love you Mom And will miss you. Your Loving Son Denny
