For a time, they lived in Kalamazoo, finally settling in Plainwell raising Jeff's children, son Jeff Jr., daughter Amanda and loving grandson Kenny. Janey's pets were so very special to her - Zachery, Tanner and Lily. Life was a fun-filled adventure, sharing time with family, and friends were her joy. She also loved playing cards, visiting, camping, fishing, yard or beach parties, bonfires, hunting, golf cart rides, family reunions, trips back to Detroit for girlfriend weekends, and music of all kinds. Janey was always willing to offer guidance, loving care, kind words and help to all. Over the years, she worked in the finance world, in retail, banking, and production industries, also some local bartending.
