Janet''s love lives on in her family, friends & many students which she helped to inspire & guide over the years. Janet especially loved her role as Bah, and always beamed when she talked about her children and grandchildren. Each time I walk the beaches of Sanibel Island, drive through an Amish countryside, plant Spring flowers, watch a Cubs game, sip a cup of coffee, or hear a Beach Boys song; I will always remember this very special person who truly enriched the world around her, and my life. Take care my forever best friend, for I believe we will meet again. My deepest sympathy to all members of Janet's great family.

Oh the memories I have of Janet over the first 16 years of her life! Our mothers shared the same hospital room when Janet and I were born 18 hours apart, we lived a block away from each other as we grew up and we played together before "play dates" were the thing. When we started school we stuck together as we started Kindergarten and through the years at Riverview, then on to North Side and on to Elkhart High School. We shared dreams and hopes for big families, which we both achieved. We lost touch as we each got married and started our "adult life" but found each other again in 1971 and while the friendship stayed we both kept moving in different directions. We would see each other when a life changing event happened and when Facebook entered the picture we were able to keep in touch a little better. She loved Texas and even though I am in Fort Worth we were never able to get a schedule set where we could meet up when she was spending the summers in Texas with her grandchildren. I will always regret that we never got that to happen. We use to chuckle that our lives were so similar - we both had 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls and we both ended up loving Texas and we both have grandchildren who are our whole world. Even though we didn't get to see or talk to each other much this last year I am going to miss knowing that she isn't "there" when I think about her - she was my "oldest" friend (by that 18 hours) and I will never forget the birthday parties our moms gave, the dancing we did in her sun room at her house, she had the neatest record player, it payed a stack of records, something I didn't have growing up and the dreams we both had. Fly High dear friend, I will still think of you and I am sure we will still have those deep conversations - we didn't see eye to eye on some things of life even though you are a head of me in this stage of your life like you were all our earthly lives. I know we will meet up again and maybe we can sit and talk and laugh again about all those important things- I always thought it was so neat you got to live on a street with MY last name on it, that your dad always gave us all those punch holes to scatter all over the house and that your big sister lived in the house my dad grew up in, again on a street with my last name. Loved you as a best friend growing up and love you as a friend now - you will ALWAYS be my "oldest friend in the world". To all of her children - you had a terrific, loving mother and to Mike, you two were one of the longest loving couples I know and to Carol, your Aunt will always look out for you. RIP Janet, your fight is over and your battle is won, you have your wings.

so very sad to read about Mrs Murphy. She was a wonderful woman and great asset to Marquette Montessori. My children miss her greatly.
