    Roger and family, We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Janey. We played together as youngsters when she and Ann came to their cousins Patti and Mike Gillies in West Branch as we were neighbors of Patti and Mike. We saw them many times and grew quite a bond.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you…. Linda Stephens

    To the Winslow family – Janey is one person I sure will miss. Over the years had plenty of hearty conversations about us as individuals and those within the families: Winter, Ketcham ( my mother, Doris Wiinter Ketcham) had stayed in contact over the years with her and both sides of the family. Janey, her mother, father and cousins all valuable links to the history of the family. My best to all the family. And, I especially will miss those conversations.

    Roger and girls,I’m so sorry to hear about Janey.We were more than cousins.We grew up together and she and Ann were like sisters to me.Our mothers were best friends and I spent as much time at their house as I did mine.We kept in touch through Facebook and occasional get togethers in West Branch. I will miss her.She was born two weeks after me and has been in my life ever since.
    May you find comfort in family and friends.

    I knew Janey most of her life. She was a dear person and I appreciate her kindness to my sister in a time of need. It was more than generous of her and her family. Love!
