She was a wonderful woman, wife, and mother. Also she was a devoted Christian. Now she can go home with George.

I used to bowl with George and Janet and Rosey on the CMA church league every Friday night. I also work at Conzattis. I would see Janet a couple times a week. I have been missing her lately. She was truly one of the nicest people I have ever met. She was a blessing to me!

I was so sorry to hear of Janet's passing. Many memories of her and George. I would always give her a big hug at church and tell her that I loved her perfume, which was called Happy, which she was not. She really missed George and was lonely with out him. She is not alone now, she is with her Lord and her beloved George. I will miss her very much. I am very sorry that i will not be able to attend her funeral as I will be out of town. Cindy Slack.
