Janet Gail Williamson, 67, passed away on July 5, 2019, at her home on San Juan Island surrounded by dear friends, her sister Darleen and her loving animals Moose and Frankie. She did her best to live life to the fullest while fighting breast cancer for five years.
Janet was blessed with dedicated friends in Colorado, Washington, Mexico, New Zealand and elsewhere who supported her during her illness. She lived in Evergreen for more than 30 years. In the final years of her life, she moved to San Juan Island, Wash., to be close to her sister, Darleen Nixon.
Janet had a long and rewarding career as a teacher. Early in her career, she worked with deaf students in Colorado Springs and Littleton. She loved working with kids in middle school and taught at John Wesley Powell Middle School for many years. Former students contacted Janet throughout her life and in her final months. She loved hearing about their lives, and the accomplishments of the young people she had nurtured and educated.
Friends and family remember Janet for her tender heart, sense of humor and wonderful generosity. She made everyone she met feel special.
She is survived by her sister, Darleen Nixon of San Juan Island, Wash., and her adopted grandson, Jack Berendes of Evergreen as well as many close friends.
