    Janet, Your hospitality and leadership made my childhood more joyful. I thank you always for your patience with young second graders and onward for teaching us to be successful women. I’ve seen a lot of good and bad and you were on the side of good always. I’m blessed to have you as my Camp Fire leader and as Sue’s Mom. You and Kentner showed me a happy home which was lacking in my childhood. I know you’ve joined Kentner in Heaven. God Bless and thank you! Sheila Bilyeu Rausch

    Sending much love and prayers to all the family as you are saying goodbye to your mom and grandmother. It is always so hard to say goodbye. She will always be remembered by us for her kindness and generosity. And her love of wiener dogs. I’m sure she’s already enjoying heaven with Kent and Hilde.

    So sad to see Janet go. She was such a kind, wonderful person. She was always a pleasure to work for. I spent Saturday nights with her for many years, up until the time she became ill. She was a blessing to be around. I’m sorry she became sick and I was unable to say goodbye. I loved Janet and will miss her very much. I’m sure she went immediately into heaven as she was one of the nicest people I have ever met. My prayer’s are with her family at this time of healing. Know that Mary the mother of God is always there for comfort.
