MESA, Ariz. — On Thursday, April 24, 2008, at the age of 61, Janet Ketter passed away surrounded by her loving family.
Remaining to cherish Janet’s memory are her devoted husband of 42 years, Richard Ketter; her loving mother, Wilma Payne; two children, Gregory (Gina) Ketter and Lori (Bruce) Piper; and four grandchildren, Fabiola, Christopher, Scott and Blake.
She was preceded in death by her father, Ralph Payne.
Janet was born in Mount Vernon on Dec. 3, 1946. She met and married Richard there and, in 1980, relocated to Mesa, Ariz. In no time at all they were proud to call the Valley home. While Janet enjoyed her career at Post Newsweek cable, her true passion was always her family. Her children and grandchildren meant everything to her. Janet’s kind and giving spirit touched many lives and her memory will be forever in our hearts.
The family would like to thank the wonderful caregivers that helped enhance Janet’s quality of life, especially over the last year. The love and support they provided to us all is greatly appreciated.
A memorial service will be Friday, May 2, at 10 a.m. at Crossroads Nazarene Church in Chandler, Ariz.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Arthritis Foundation of the Tempe Homeless Outreach Program.
