Janet Jean  Garrett


Janet Jean Garrett of Orchard Drive, Prospect, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019, at her home. She was 74 years young.
Janet was born in Sharon on Jan. 30, 1944, to the late Weldon Sewell Garrett and Frances Bell Garrett.
She graduated from Wilmington High School in 1962, and Slippery Rock University.
She was a member of Neshannock Presbyterian Church of New Wilmington.
She taught in the Butler Area School District for many years.
Janet lived life to the fullest and embraced the philosophy that every meal should start with dessert. She told her family to be sure that her obituary stated that she hated to dust and vacuum, but she loved making fudge and mowing the grass.
Survivors include her two older sisters, Marian Garrett Nelson (G. James) of Grove City and Margaret Garrett Lutz (Larry) of Volant; her longtime best friend, Ron Mustello and the Mustello family; and her nieces, nephews and their children, who all treasured her.
She was preceded in death by two brothers, Robert William Garrett and Lyle Bell Garrett.
Visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Smith Funeral Home, 310 W. Neshannock Ave., New Wilmington.
A funeral service will be 2 p.m. Saturday at the funeral home with the Rev. William H. Stone Jr., pastor of Neshannock Presbyterian Church, officiating.
Memorial contributions may be made to the donor's favorite charity.
The family encourages you to honor January as her birthday month by eating a lot of cake.
