Janet S. Terry, 94, of Canton, PA, widow of Carl, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday morning, January 17, 2018.

Janet Stella Ward was born in West Burlington, PA March 2, 1923, one of five children of the late James Warren and Bertha Elizabeth (Herda) Ward.  After graduating from Troy High School, Janet worked as a grocery store clerk while waiting for her sweetheart’s return from WWII.  On Sept. 18, 1945, she married Carl Duane Terry in Canton.  They were blessed with nearly 65 devoted years of marriage and raised two daughters before his passing in 2010.  Janet attended the East Canton United Methodist Church and was a member of Canton’s V.F.W Auxiliary 714.

Caring for family and home was most important in Janet’s life.  She was usually busy with a project or interest and especially enjoyed being an avid gardener for many years, reading and cooking.

In addition to her husband Carl, she was predeceased by four siblings; Dorothy Allie Driesbaugh, Betty Carlson, Clifford and Paul “Dick” Ward; a son-in-law, Joseph R. Miller and several brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.

Janet was a very special Lady. I enjoyed helping her and Carl for awhile. The stories they told, was very heart warming of their LOVE and trips. So sorry they are both gone. I know you will miss them. Carl and Edna Lathrop really enjoyed the time they spent together. GOD be with all of your family.

We have been neighbors for 47 years with Janet and Carl. They were good folks. We will Janet as we've missed Carl the last few years. I recall Janet working as a cashier in Harry Lammy's Red and White store in Troy in the 1940's when my family resided there. George's Dad, Earl,sold them their home property.

Mary & Janet Lee,
I am sorry to hear of Aunt Janet's passing. Visiting your family (and our other aunts, uncles and cousins) was one of the greatest times in my youth. I have many great memories from our times in the mountains. May God's peace be with you.
