I worked with Janet at the US Army Limited War Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Ground and through those many years, Janet was a hard worker, a gracious lady, and a great friend. We stayed in touch through the years at our LWL reunions and on-going e-mails, and she will be sorely missed. I extend my condolences to Janet's family. She was a very special friend and will be missed by so many. Ruthie Shaw Thompson, San Angelo, Texas

When I arrived in Airville late summer of 1989, Janet was appointed to the commission to ordain me. The service took place at Light Street Presbyterian Church, Baltimore, in October. I always appreciated Janet’s tremendous support of the Airville Area churches when we came together for community worship, usually 10 times a year. Several months ago I visited Janet and her sister Betty. It was a wonderful time of sharing. My sincerest prayers of God’s comfort to her family and all who were close to her. Sincerely, Rev. Jim Shuler.
