Obituary Condolences

Hyland, Janet Regina
Oct. 9, 2007

Rev. Janet Regina Hyland went home to be with the Lord to whom she devoted her life, seeking God and working for the Good. She was a veteran of the United States Air Force.
While living in Virginia she worked for the diocesan newspaper, The Catholic Virginian. While in Texas she worked with The Assembly of God's prison ministry, and upon coming to Florida she worked with Migrant Ministries through the Catholic Church and Sarasota-Manatee Farm Worker Support Committee. Her love for animals consumed her last 20 years, in which she was very active with the Sarasota in Defense of Animals, participating in adoption programs, peaceful public demonstrations, and fostering animals in her home. She had two books published, books that became the standard in the animal rights movement, "The Slaughter of Terrified Beasts" and "God's Covenant with Animals." She was profoundly respected by leaders in this movement.
She authored hundreds of articles and publications under the auspices of Humane Religion.
Janet will be remembered as a person of integrity, wit, charm, intelligence and a sense of style.
She is survived by her loving sister, Jean Burns of Sarasota.
Cremation with Dignity Entrusted thru Jennings Funeral Homes & Crematory, Sarasota.
