Mary Janetta was such a warm and endearing woman of faith. It was our good fortune to have known her personally for many years and through an even closer relationship in recent times with our mutual service on the Ward Township District No. 5 School board of directors. She will be missed!

As a 4-year old when my family and I moved to a farm in Ward Twp., we were blessed to have as our "next-door/next farm" neighbors the Jackson family. Mary Janetta and I became acquainted as we boarded the school bus to enter the 1st grade at Jefferson School where we remained classmates and close friends for 12 years, graduating together in 1953. Mary was truly a wonderful classmate and friend. I can't remember her being anything but kind, thoughtful, and caring to and for everyone. I will miss Mary not only because of her friendship to me and my family, but for her devotion to keeping track of all our classmates and friends, remembering them with cards, e-mails, and telephone calls and facilitating our reunions and get-togethers. She truly will be missed by so many. I'm sure God has a special place in Heaven for Mary. Thanks, dear friend, for all you did and for the Memories!
