Sending sympathies to Janet's family.  All of us ladies in West Chester, who were members of the Chester County Legal Secretaries Association will miss Janet.  She was a strong member of our association and we all had lots of fun together. We reveled in her ghost stories and we had fun times at our weekend excursions for state-wide meetings.  She was a leader in our "legal" world.

We were so sad to hear of Janet's passing. I knew her from the Parkesburg Baptist Choir. Her voice was strong and beautiful. I will always remember her passion for serving her Lord. I also saw her occassionally at Tel Hai where my father-in-law, Wilmer R. Taylor Sr. resides. Whenever we saw her, she would smile and greet us and would be excited to see us. Her smile was always genuine. I wish I had known earlier about her passing so that we could have attended her funeral. Praying for peace for her family and friends.
