sweet Lady

I worked with Janet at the Lutheran Home for a few years , She was such a sweet  lady I loved her smile and how much she cared about her job and the people she worked with. She had away about herself that even if I was having a bad day in the kitchen she could turn it around with a kind word or a sweet smile. May she be in peace and my prayers are with her family at this sad time .

From Florida with Love

My heart is breaking for the Moyer family in losing their wonderful, loving Matriarch. I met my cousin Janet before I remembered since after high school she lived with us in Florida before she came home and met and married Cacti. Of course then I got to be the flower girl! Our family would come to Topton for Christmas and some summers and while playing with the neighbor Peggy I was in and out of their house. Too many years and life went by without any visits but I am so grateful that I could be part of Janet and the Moyer family these past many years. She cared and did so much for her children and grandchildren and loved them all. I was glad I got her to come and stay with Terry and me for a few days after Bock and Sams wedding and that we were there to help celebrate her last birthday!! I will miss those porch visits and our fight over not taking our pictures...Will miss you Janet....Love Priscilla and Terry..

Mom and Grandma

I met Janet through my daughter Tracy and son-in-law Dean - I knew her to be a wonderful Mom and Grandmother - she had a great sense of humor and there was no end to her love of family.  

With my daughter being so far away it was great comfort to know that Janet took her in as one of her own - the wonderful memories she made with family will be a lasting treasure.  A lifetime of love - she will be missed
