My sincere sympathy to all of Janet's family. Janet was my classmate (SWHS 1953) and a long time friend. I remember now and then going home with her after school on Countyline Street to have some "girly talk." The neat thing about their home, you went up the side stairs to the living area, for there was a car dealership below, this was a long time ago! Fond memories! May she rest in peace,

Thank you Kris for taking care of Betty!

My condolences to her family. I worked for Janet at the Fostoria Hallmark store. She was a wonderful manager and friend. We had lots of laughs and fun together, both at work and in our leisure. She always greeted you with a smile. I'm so sad to hear of her passing. Peace and strength to her family.
Carol and John Pope
