Not sure what to say?

Janet, her siblings and I attended the same one-room grade school back in the 40's. I'd lost track of her until her husband's obit appeared a few months ago and I was able to contact Janet via letter thereafter. My regret is that I did not pursue personal contact with her as we shared memories in writing. We had so much fun as "country kids" which will always be near and dear to me.

Don & Jan both were true servants to God & others. I remember when Jan was head of the catering committee at church preparing food for many dinners and weddings. She worked tirelessly preparing the food and Don was always up to his elbows in dishwater. These two are surely missed and fondly remembered.

So sorry to hear the news.
25 years ago, Jan and Don took me under their wing on the friendship their eldest son had developed with me. They assisted a young man from Ireland in so many ways, the list is too long to name.

Jan would always have an open door for me, always checked on me, like I was one of her own.

Thought and Prayers are with all. Jan had a true servant's heart and loved her family deeply. She will be missed by all!

The legacy Jan and Don have left is seen in the lives of not only her family but the hundreds of children all over the world. The Nettles Island Church family in Florida would say she is irreplaceable! She will be recognized and remembered this coming Sunday! God's blessings on those precious family members who have been blessed beyond measure because of Jan's life.

Jan was a special friend to many at Cornerstone. She was faithful and was a very active, involved member. She had the gift of encouragement and loved to send cards to our church family. She will be greatly missed, but we know that right now she is with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!!! To God be the glory!
