Janet was a member of the North Shore Business Association and Avenue of the Flags, and was a former member of the ULHS booster club. She was a long-time member of TOPS.
Janet loved spending time with her family and friends, and could put together a party under the walnut tree at her Witter Springs ranch in a matter of hours. She looked forward to her “sisters’ weekends” with her sisters and her late aunt, Diane Smith. She enjoyed gardening. She grew vegetables and flowers to enter in the Lake County Fair, and enjoyed comparing ribbons and prize money with her sisters and granddaughter, Morgan. She enjoyed spending time at the casino with her husband. Video slots were her favorite.
Janet is predeceased by her parents, Mary Janet and Fenton Rinder. She is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Byron; her daughters, Pam and Suzie; grandchildren, Morgan, Jacob, Cody and Brooklyn; great grandson, Michael; sisters, Franny, Arlene, Julie and Barbara Jean; and brother Billy.
Janet will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
No formal funeral services are planned at this time. Her family plans to hold a memorial/celebration of life at a later date.
