Janet loved watching the Bengals, doing her crossword puzzles, and playing the dictionary game her and her family created. She was a strong woman of faith and read her KJV Bible every day. If anyone had a question on a scripture, Janet would know the answer. She also took great pleasure in participating in her art classes that were provided by Cedar Village. Most of all, Janet loved getting to spend time with her family, and sitting, talking, and sharing stories with her great-grandson Colby. Her sense of humor, love and contagious smile will be deeply missed by many.
