Janet passed away peacefully at the age of 86. She was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland.

She married Harold on July 3, 1954 in Baltimore. They moved to Austin and then Dallas, Texas before settling in Albuquerque. Janet and Harold adopted four children.

Janet was a proud homemaker. She was a dedicated mom, transporting her kids to school and many other activities. She enjoyed puzzles, crocheting, sewing, quilting, traveling and playing Scrabble with Harold. She especially enjoyed relaxing during trips to Kona, Hawaii. She was a long-time member of Los Altos Christian Church.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Harold, her parents, Robert and Evelyn Dorsch, and her sister, Marilyn Keehner/Werner.

She is survived by her children, James Southward, Karen Dunkin, Sharon Goshorn and Paul Southward; her grandchildren, Alexander and Derek Southward, Daniel and Lynzie Camera, Amanda Stuart and Kelli Desmond, and Caitlyn, Megan and Lillian Southward; and her great-grandchildren, Madison and Lennon Camera, Logan Fowkes, Ryan and Andrew Stuart and Connor and Owen Desmond. She was loved tremendously and will be missed by her family and friends.

Her family would like to thank Amber Kleiman and the staff at Northridge and Footprints for providing excellent care, comfort, and companionship during her declining health.

A celebration of her life will be held on Monday, January 16 at 1:00 at Los Altos Christian Church 11900 Haines NE, Albuquerque, NM. She asked that bright, celebratory colors be worn at her service. In lieu of flowers, Janet would appreciate donations to Los Altos Christian Church.
