Janet Jean Garrett

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 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.

Miss Enright taught our daughters in Oakland Elementary School and she was the most caring wonderful person as well as teacher. I was saddened to hear of her passing she will always be a part of the Oakland teachers that we still talk about.

So very shocked and saddened to hear of Jan's passing. I taught across the hall and then "around the bend" from her for many, many years. She hosted many delightful get-togethers at her home in Prospect. Sympathies to her friends and family.

I had Jan as my fifth grade teacher. She was one of my favorites! I remember sitting in her classroom on 9/11 and I remember how wonderfully she handled a bunch of scared and confused little kids. She was a wonderful woman who will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.
