Janet Marie Howard Shantz Obituary
JANET MARIE HOWARD SHANTZ, born October 2, 1940, slipped away on April 30, 2014 at the Village Healthcare Center in Hemet. Both Janet and her parents, Paul and Laura Howard were born in Hemet. Janet met her husband, Jim Shantz through his uncle, the Reverend Roy Schippling a former pastor of the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, Hemet. After their wedding, on June 28, 1969 at the Trinity Lutheran Church, Hemet, the couple moved to Kitchener, Ontario for almost 30 years, before returning to Hemet. Jim passed away in 2008. After attending Hemet schools, Janet finished her education at Devereux School near Santa Barbara. Janet worked at the Howard Rose Company. She was proud of her Hemet heritage and of her grandfather, Charles W. Howard, founder of the Howard Rose Company. In Canada, Janet was involved with family, friends and Jim's co-workers. On her return to Hemet Janet wrote creative stories and painted landscapes and flowers with her mother Laura. She was also active in her church's Christmas Craft group. Janet's favorite holiday was Christmas. Janet is survived by two sisters; Christine Fuller of Homeland and Kathleen Stearns of Springfield, Oregon, and by her brother, Paul Witbeck Howard of Reno, Nevada. She has four nieces and two nephews, two grand nieces and four grand nephews. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Devereux Foundation, P.O. Box 638, Villanova PA, 19085 (www.devereux.org.) A memorial service will be held Friday, June 20, at 10:30 am at Trinity Lutheran Church, Hemet.
