I worked with Jan at PeaceHealth back in the 90s and remember when she was diagnosed. I also remember her taking the doug fir seedlings to plant. I think of her when I see them sprouting up.

Janet and I were friends through out high school. She provided me with lots of great memories. I often think about her and wondered how she was doing. I feel sad that we didn't keep in touch. Condolences to you and your family.

My condolences to Tom Sr. and the Short family. I (Gayla Ohlhauser) graduated with Janet at Evergreen High School in 1970. We lost track of each other when I moved to California in 1971. Janet was one of my first friends at Evergreen High School (I transferred there my Senior year). Janet was always happy, friendly and always had good things to say about everyone. She will be missed.
