Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I am so sorry to hear of your loss, just found out yesterday. Janet was such a good friend to my mom, I often said she was like a sibling. From the 4 corners to the potato farm I heard so many stories that bring a smile to my face. Janet loved you all very well and I hope this helps as you go thru this time of grieving. - Posted by: Debbie marginet, Germaine Van damme (Annie Marginet's daughter) on: Dec 08, 2017

  • I would like to extend my sympathies to Janet's family on behalf of the family of her Uncle Jack Fox, Sherri, Gregg and Carol. - Posted by: Sherri Fox Glazier (Cousin) on: Nov 30, 2017
