Janet was a member of the Portage Alliance Church. Janet lovingly devoted her time to family and provided a welcoming love to them all. She greatly enjoyed cooking, and the family will fondly remember gathering for the large meals at Christmas, Thanksgiving, and 4th of July. Although she enjoyed all the gatherings, you could see the sparkle in her eyes when she said, “Christmas is my favorite time of the year”. Janet also enjoyed music and dancing and had many Saturday morning dance sessions with her daughters while cleaning the house.

Per Janet’s request all services will be private.

The Poorman Family would like to thank Dr. Mark Ratchford and Dr. Samir Hadeed and their staffs, Molly McGuire, CRNP and Aseracare Hospice for all the love and care that they had given to Janet.
