June 16, 1955 – November 29, 2014

Intelligence, integrity, generosity, love of life, strength, courage, vitality, compassion, energy and faith.  Dilemma?  She will figure out a solution and make it happen.  Need help crossing a bridge?  She will walk beside you and get you across safely.   Crisis?  She will calm you, and then resolve it.  She will keep in contact to make sure all is good.  Heartache?  She will be your shoulder, cry with you, and walk beside you until she knows you are okay.   Need to vent?  She will never judge or criticize.  She will listen, but is always honest with any knowledge she could share.   You may think we are describing Mother Theresa …  Close, but no, her name is Janet and she is our sister, our friend, an aunt, a Godmother, and the most beautiful person… both inside and out.  She fought her disease, with bravery and the most amazing courage you will ever see.  In our eyes she is a survivor.  Janet’s earthly journey is over, but her well deserved everlasting life has begun.  The highest honor achievable.  She has touched the life of every person she met.  She loved life and lived it to the fullest.  Janet thrived and radiated when she was able to help others.  It was always about someone else – who she could help, guide, encourage.  Never about herself.  Janet had many loves in her life, friends, family, traveling, experiencing new foods and places.  Her intelligence took her far in life, her love for people took her farther and her faith took her home.  Janet, from all your family and friends … you will be greatly missed and forever loved.  Thank you for being a part of our lives.

  7. Janet worked at the Torrance, CA terminal for a few years and made tremendous contributions in the fields of Health, Safety and Environmental improvement. She was an important part of the management team and always did more than her share. She had a great sense of humor and was friends with everyone at work. She went on 2 of our company fishing trips to Catalina Island and won the jackpot for biggest fish one year. She was so much fun on those trips. May you rest peacefully in Gods Arms Janet Olsen.

  8. I knew Janet only for a short time, however, she made me feel like a lifelong friend. Her journey on earth is over, her eternal life free of pain and suffering has just begun. I hope you are dancing with the angels in a Heaven. God Bless.

  9. Janet,
    You were a very nice, great friend. It was a pleasure working with you, even for long hours.
    I will miss you. In fact all of us will miss you badly.
    Good bye my friend. You ran the good race.
    We will meet again in heaven.

  10. Dear Janet was a very special friend of mine. She lived in Luling only a short time but it seems I have known her forever. I received a Thanksgiving card from her the Saturday before she died telling me her cancer had reared its head again and she was preparing to go to Hospice. I immediately called her and we had a good phone visit. You would never know she was on her ‘death bed’. She tried to cheer me up! My heart is broken and a good friend is gone. I don’t know of anyone who had so many friends, went so many places, enjoyed life so much as Janet. She surely left a good legacy. We had some good times together that I will cherish forever and will miss her in all ways. I love you much, Janet. God speed !!
