Janet was a vivacious woman with a sparkling personality. She could "cut a rug" like a pro and often engaged in practical jokes and shenanigans. She loved to laugh. Spending time with people, most importantly her family, was her priority in life. Though she will be terribly missed, we rejoice for her because we know she is with her God and also her "Buster", the son she lost 10 years ago. Her heart is again full.
Funeral Services will be held Wednesday July 27th 11 am at Strickland Funeral Home, Crystal River with visitation one hour prior (10:00 am to 11:00 am) Officiating will be Rev. Larry Foskey of Lakeland, Florida assisted by Rev. Roger Cash of Crystal River Church of God. Interment will follow at Fountains Memorial Park in Homosassa.
