Janet moved to Chewelah Washington in 1972 and lived at Waitts Lake. Later she moved to Spokane. As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, she devoted her life to helping others and sharing her biblical hope for the future. Janet loved life, friends, gardening, swimming, and the ocean. All her loved ones remember her for playing songs by Englebert Humperdink, playing cards or dominoes, and trips camping or to the lake.

Her Memorial will be held Saturday, July 27, 2019, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses 2405 East 57th Ave Spokane, WA 99223 at 3 pm. With tremendous gratitude to Hospice of Spokane.
