SAN ANGELO Janet Holland passed from this earthly life to her heavenly life on July 6, 2014. Janet was born Aug. 5, 1950, in San Angelo, Texas, to Angeline Michalik and Clifton Simcik, the first of five daughters. Janet grew up on a farm near Wall, Texas, and was very proud of her Czech heritage and rural upbringing. She married Greg Huling in August of 1971, and from this union, two sons were born. On Jan. 7, 1989, she married "My Rock" Bill Holland (The Father He Didn't Have To Be), in San Angelo. They celebrated 25 years of marriage. Janet attended Fairview Elementary, Edison Jr. High and San Angelo Central High School, graduating in May of 1968. She attended Angelo State University for two and a half years and then began studies in radiology technology. Following training in Wichita Falls, Lubbock and Parkland Hospital in Dallas, she passed the national registry and began working as a registered radiologic technologist in Waco and San Angelo. Janet also worked as Director of Volunteers at Angelo Community Hospital from 1986 to 2000. She loved being "MOM" to all the volunteers and cherished the many relationships she developed during those years. She then returned to her original profession and worked at West Texas Medical Associates as a radiologic technologist until her untimely death. Janet was involved in the community through Beta Sigma Phi, the Junior League of San Angelo, the Angelo Community Auxiliary Concho Valley Boy Scouts and Sierra Vista United Methodist Church. She is most proud of being Bill's wife, her family, which includes her three eagle scout sons, being "Nettie" to her precious grandchildren, being one of the five Simcik sisters, and being part of the CCC class at Sierra Vista United Methodist Church. Janet's hobby was her family. She loved spending time with her husband, Bill, at their family property on Spring Creek. "Nettie" especially loved when the children and grandchildren, other family and friends joined them there. She enjoyed traveling with Bill on many adventures, and loved seeing all the incredible beautiful places of this earth. She especially loved St. Bart's, the Czech Republic, Yellow Stone National Park, Alaska, Patagonia, Peru, and of course all of the diverse places in Texas. Janet was full of joy and anticipation on a flight to Alaska when the Lord called her home. Janet was widely known as a hugger, and people often told her that she gave the best hugs.
