Obituary Condolences

Janet Beck Janet Beck passed away on March 27, 2013. Janet was daughter of the late Florence (Christensen) Clarke and Francis J. Clarke. Sister to the late Francis J. Clarke III, Margaret (Peggy) Maxwell and the late James Clarke. Aunt to James F. Clarke (Ruth), Erin Doherty (John), Kelly NormOyle (Damien); Maureen MacLeod (Gary), and Colleen Anne Clarke. Great aunt to Gabriel Muthart (Clarke), Margaret Elise; Sean, Kylie, Fion Doherty; Connor and Kasey NormOyle; Morira and Rorey Macleod. Janet lived a life where she loved others. She was diagnosed with cancer last May. Even though cancer took her life, it did not take her spirit. Jan worked for RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) where she spent her career helping others. Over the last year, she decided to spend her time with her family and faith. The harder her trials became the stronger she became to overcome them. No matter how bad the situation became she never lost her sense of humor or faith. Her biggest concern was her family and friends. That is the kind of person she was, always thinking of others. She prayed often and God answered a lot of her prayers. Prayer sustained her through her trails. She was a fighter and a servant. She would often give her time and support to fight for others. She fought to help senior citizens, she fought for the children of Allendale, and she fought for her family. There is nothing she enjoyed more than fighting for others. She often would spend hours researching to help someone with their legal battles. She will be missed. She is survived by her three sons and two granddaughters, Richard Starr, Sean Starr, Kristopher Beck, Mariah Starr, Madison Starr. The visitation will be at her Church Chain O Lakes Community Bible Church, (43 W. Grass Lake Road, Lake Villa, IL 60046) at 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. The funeral will be at 2 p.m. There will be a brunch after the service from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. God Bless.
