JANET WILLIAMS BARE Janet Williams Bare passed away October 27, 2012, in Chromo, CO, in the home she loved, surrounded by her beloved husband, children and pets. Janet was 61, and demonstrated remarkable courage, dignity and grace while battling pancreatic cancer for over three years. She was an inspiration to family and friends. When asked about her upcoming death, Janet responded, "I can't say I'm afraid of anything. I feel I am on a journey and can't wait to see what happens next." Janet was born August 8, 1951 in Concord, MA, to Paul and Barbara Williams. She graduated from the University of Massachusetts, volunteered in Côte d'Ivoire through Peace Corps, and in 1980, traveled west with future husband Carey Bare and settled in Santa Fe. They were married on May 29, 1982. Janet lived in Santa Fe and Los Alamos with Carey and their children, Lucas and Hallie, before moving to Chromo, CO in 2009. Janet was loved by many for her generosity, humor, thoughtfulness, wisdom, honesty, selflessness and loyalty. She is survived by her husband, Carey Bare; son, Carey Lucas Bare; and daughter, Hallie Mahowald; mother, Barbara Williams; sister, Judith Williams; brothers: Paul and Glenn Williams; and many nieces and nephews. Janet's family invites friends to celebrate her life at the Gerald Peters Gallery in Santa Fe on November 11 from 2-5 p.m. In lieu of flowers, Janet requested donations be made to the Janet Bare Spring Creek Restoration Fund through the Chama Peak Land Alliance, PO Box 6190, Bozeman, MT 59771.
