Janet never met a stranger.  She was a loving friend to all those who knew and loved her. Janet was a loving wife for 38 years to Bobby, and a wonderful mother to her two sons Jonathan and Andrew, but she also wanted to be a mom for everyone she met. Janet was a Navy Veteran who served from 1980 to 1982. Over the years after her service she was a stay at home mom, and she felt that it was the most important job she had. During many of those years it was while she was a Navy Spouse and during that period she also volunteered her time to the Navy/Marine Corps Relief Society. She was also an Ombudsman/Key wife for several duty stations that her husband was assigned to. She also worked at several different companies. She did spend her last 10 years with Big Lots before she was diagnosed with cancer.  

She is preceded in death by her father.

She is survived by her husband, sons; Jonathon M. and Andrew Gaines.
