Janet, was the brightest most elegant lady. She will be missed. -Mark & Alpha Remaley 

Dear Janet, We will always treasure the memories of our times cruising the great lakes together, and playing Canasta to all hours at the Marina. You and Bob watched our kids grow up with us, we shared some of the best times of our lives. Rest in peace. -Mark, Libby, Ben, and Katie.

I will always remember a kind soft spoken loving person who married my Uncle Bob and we lived in Cleveland Ohio. Without fail every year she sent my children cmas ornaments and us a Heavenly Ham. In these later years they both endured physical and health decline. She never stopped trying to stay active and she loved reading. When my father relocated my family to Arlington Heights IL - we stopped to say goodbye and she made the best grilled cheese sandwiches I ever had. Loved our more recent long talks with her sharing her deepest thoughts. Miss you but know your heavenly reunion will be joyful. XXOO -Sandi Scheuerman Runge 

I so enjoyed when she was able to join our book group reviews. She did background research and had very meaningful thoughts to share. May the memories help you through this difficult time. -Kathy Lundstrom

Dear Janet. We will miss you so much. Frank and I have such wonderful memories shared with you and Bob.. We did so much together. Our boating on Lake Michigan started it all. We had some amazing and fun weekends and trips up north.. We enjoyed our time in Mexico(our resort restaurant waiters still ask about you). Our trips to Europe were wonderful and sometimes challenging. We also enjoyed our Canasta games, you were the best. So happy we had the chance to see you last August. We love you!  -Nancy Morgan 

Janet was such a thoughtful, kind neighbor. We will miss Jane's gentle manner. So glad I was able to visit with her recently. Wonderful memories. -Pam & Bill Schiller

Janet was my first real boss and mentor. I learned so much from her while at Herman Smith, Coopers and Lybrand, and PwC - 15 years! She was a lovely, warm, caring person in both her personal and professional lives. I will always remember her fondly. -John (and Tina) Strauss

I attended book club with Janet. I remember her as quiet, soft-spoken and kind, but when she did speak she always had interesting perspectives and observations. She seemed to always have a smile on her face. Book club will miss you Janet. -Susan Rodeck
