Janet Dalrymple(1932 - 2014)

JANET NORENE DALRYMPLE Janet passed away peacefully on March 20, 2014 at her home. She was born to John D. Munsinger and Marjorie F. Crosby on Feb. 5, 1932 in Spaulding, Nebraska. Her father moved her to California at a very young age where he was re-married to Elsie and they settled near Los Molinos, Ca. where her father raised cattle and other crops. Janet attended Los Molinos High School and then CSU Chico where she earned her teaching credential. While at Chico State, she met and married Melvin "Bush" Dalrymple on April 28, 1951. They both became lifelong educators in Chico where they col-lectively influenced thou-sands of young lives. Janet taught four different grade levels at three different element-ary schools over her thirty-one year career. Her natural kindness, compassion and encoura-ging nature made her a highly desired teacher for hundreds of parents in the school district. After retiring from teaching, Janet was a tireless volunteer for The Discovery Shoppe of Chico for many years. She touched countless individuals in her journey through life and all of them were blessed to have known her. She loved traveling, gardening, volunteering, shopping and any kind of family activity. She was pre-ceded in death by her Father Jack, Stepmother Elsie and one brother Melvin (Mary). She is survived by her loving husband of nearly 63 years Bush, brother Harry, sons Mark (Cindy) and Rick, grandchildren Kyle (Amanda), Jennah (Steve) and great-grandchild Reese, along with numerous nieces and nephews. The family suggests in lieu of flowers donations be directed to the Enloe Hospice Care Program. There will be a Celebration of Life at the Chico Elks Lodge, 12:00 p.m.. on Friday, March 28, 2014 for all who knew and loved her. Please feel free to join her family and friends to honor and remember Janet for all she meant to each of us. To send condolences to the family go online to NewtonBracewell.com
