January 1, 1937 - August 24, 2013
On Saturday, August 24, 2013, Janet M. Bindseil passed away following an extended and brave battle with breast cancer. She accepted God's will with courage, grace and dignity. She was a resident of Holly Springs, NC for 17 years after living most of her life in her hometown of Erie, PA. Janet joins her mother and father, Margaret and Charles Farrell, in heaven. She leaves behind her loving husband of 50 years, Larry: her children and their spouses: Jim (Johanna), Debbie (Chris) Boulware, Dave (Suzanne), Greg, and Teresa (Chris) Ulmer: and her sweet grandchildren: Sara, Lucas, Alec, Meghan, Zachary, Nathan, Gabby, Lucy and Ruby. She is also survived by her siblings: Tim (Clare) Farrell, Mary (Georges) Garinther, Treva (John) Laskowski, and Karen (Jack) Selleny: and her loving in-laws: Edwin (Dolores) Bindseil: and sister, Marie Celeste Bindseil.
Janet was a person of great faith which guided her daily life. She was a devoted wife and caring mother, who enjoyed raising her kids, teaching and supporting them in all their pursuits. As an active member of St. Bernadette Church in Fuquay for 15 years, she served as a Eucharistic minister and an officer in the women's society. She established, coordinated and volunteered in the "Office Angels" ministry. Giving her time and talents, Janet was always willing to lend a helping hand.
Janet was fortunate to experience different cultures with Larry on their travels to many interesting places around the world. She was also a wonderful cook, who shared her baking skills with her granddaughters. Her specialties will be missed almost as much as her smile, her laugh and her hugs. What Janet loved most of all was spending time with her beloved family and her wonderful friends. Whether playing golf, bridge, bunco, card/board games or attending frequent neighborhood FFFC outings, she was happy because she was with people she cared for deeply.
We wish to thank the medical and radiation doctors, nurses and technicians at CCNC in Cary for their compassionate care during her long illness.
Please join her family to honor and celebrate her life at a Memorial service at St. Bernadette Church at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 3, 2013, followed by a luncheon reception in the church hall.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the "Pretty in Pink Foundation", 2501 Blue Ridge Rd, suite 250, Raleigh, NC, 27607, or to St. Bernadette Church, 1005 Wilbon Road, Fuquay-Varina, NC, 27526.
