Calvert & Metzler Memorial Home, Bloomington, is handling arrangements.
Janet was born on July 4, 1954, in Bloomington, to Frank and Betty Barnett Wilson. Celebrating her birthday along with the birthday of our nation was always a big deal to her and it was an event every year.
She married Roger Smith on March 23, 1985, in Funks Grove. He survives.
Also surviving are her children, Kristen Smith, LeRoy; Katelyn Smith, St. Louis, Mo.; JT Hollenstain, Bloomington; and Sarah Smith, LeRoy; and her siblings, Linda (Warren) Johnson, Salida, Colo.; Jim (Mary) Wilson, Benson; and Pat (Ed) Fox, Secor.
She was preceded in death by her parents and one nephew, Andrew Johnson.
For over 30 years, Janet worked for area doctors as a registered nurse, coding specialist and office manager. She loved what she did but her true passion was being a mother, a wife and friend to all.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Central Illinois Small Animal Rescue, Colfax.
