Janet Marie (Walker) Walker

October 22, 1943 — June 23, 2017

Janet Marie Walker, age 73 of L’Anse, MI passed away on Friday, June 23, 2017 at Bayside Village in L’Anse.

She was born October 22, 1943 in Detroit, MI daughter to Roy and Mary (Morin) Walker.
At the age of 2, Janet suffered an accident that left her severely mentally and physically disabled.

Despite her handicap, Janet retained a positive outlook, an infectious sense of humor and an iron will. Ice cream, puppies, stuffed animals (especially chipmunks) and visits from her brother always generated a huge smile.

For the past 20 years Janet lived at Aurora House in L’Anse and the staff took care of Janet as though she was family. In a sense, I suppose she was. We greatly appreciate their kindness and love for Janet.

Janet is survived by her brother Bill (Ruthanne), nephews Chris, and Benjamin (Jessica) and niece Erin (Pete).

The family will have private traditional burial ceremony for her. The Jacobson Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
