January 28, 1947 - January 11, 2022
Janet Hope Lenard (Maiden Name Peterson) Born to Paul and Marion Peterson in Chicago Illinois, January 28, 1947. Janet has resided in New Jersey with her own family since 1979. A believer in Jesus Christ, Janet attended Calvary Chapel OB and Columbus Baptist Church. She was full of love and giving. Her gift in life was that of hospitality and care. She loved to pour herself into her family and her grandkids even more. Babies and children were simply the joy of her heart. Janet loved teaching her grandkids about Jesus and how much He loves us! She lived out that love every single day of her life, not only with her family, but with so many other friends and children she was blessed to have around her. Janet was kind and compassionate and a best friend to her kids. She would be there for anyone at a moment's notice. To listen, to love, to walk alongside, to have a cup of coffee with, to make a meal for, to help when someone was sick, to pray. Janet also had a knack for making a house feel like home, welcoming and comfortable. She loved to find special things to decorate with, helping with little details you just couldn't finish on your own. She spent hours in the warmer months gardening and growing beautiful flowers to enjoy. And she loved the beach! She spent summers packed up for long days at the Jersey Shore with her kids, and kept packing up every summer for more long days with the grandchildren for many, many additional years. Music was at the core of her being. She loved to sing and worship and to dance! Singing and music was a constant in Janet's life, and it was contagious. Janet loved to go for breakfast, and would meet up for coffee any time you asked. It was the little things in life, the epitome of having girl time, and also the hardest working person anyone could know. If you had a job to get done, Janet made sure it was completed with you to perfection. Selflessness is an understatement for our precious Janet. Janet leaves her legacy through her three children, Wendy, Heather and Jeffrey and their families. She especially loved her 10 grandchildren - Olivia, Jacob, Billy, Jarod, Luke, Isabella, Raquel, Lilyanna, Faith, and Savannah. She leaves her brother Mark and her nieces and nephews - David, Cathi, Matthew, Eric, Kristi and their families as well. A Celebration of Life Visitation will be held at Columbus Baptist Church on Sunday, January 23rd, from 3pm - 6pm. Location: 24260 W Main St, Columbus, NJ 08022 Janet had a special place in her heart for babies. She loved and adored children.
