Evelyn "Janette" (Brisbin) Amator

Janette entered heaven on April 25, 2013 at the age of 81. She was born on January 21, 1932 in Tolleson, Arizona to Jeff "Buster" Hardin and Gladys Spain Hardin. She attended Tolleson Elementary School and Buckeye High School where she lettered in tennis and cheerleading and was voted Most Popular Girl her senior year. She moved to San Diego, California in 1949, at age 18. In 1954, she married Homer Gene Brisbin and they raised two sons in Lakewood, California. When both boys graduated from high school, the family moved back to Arizona. Janette loved the game of baseball and if she was unable to be at the ballpark, she was happy to watch it on TV. Janette is survived by her sons; Steve Brisbin (Patrice) of Lakewood, California and Tracy Brisbin (Cindi) of Peoria, Arizona; her brother, Jeff "Bud" Hardin of Wickenburg, Arizona, grandchildren, great grandchildren and many cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends. We will miss her love and support. For more information, please visit www.greenwoodmemorylawn.com
