The family of Janette L. Benson has received the following condolences.
Janette was in my parents' wedding in 1945. She actually had worked for my folks as a housekeeper on the farm in Belvidere Twp. My mom passed in 1992, and I didn't remember ever meeting her. Well, I ran into her by chance at the Rochester airport a few years ago. I asked her if she was Janette Kohn, as she looked just like the lady in my parents' wedding photo. By George, it was her. She was surprised that I recognized her. She remembered about me, and we had a nice talk. Such a lovely lady. I told my sister of the meeting, and they corresponded for a while. I am saddened to hear of this loss, and I offer my prayers and best wishes to the family.
We are all blessed to have had this amazing lady in our lives
Heaven gets a wonderful person! We will miss you so much. It was such a pleasure to know and love you! Bigs hugs and kisses to all of our family for their loss. 😘
