I have such dear memories of Janet King.  She was one of the best people I knew at Oak Park HIgh.  I'm stricken to hear she has died.  There was just something about her that set her apart as being a notch more true to herself than any one else our age.

Janet was always smiling and always kind.  She showed genuine interest about what was going on in my life.  I have warm memories of Janet!

Janet was a sweetheart. Fun, funny and great to be around. She was always positive. I am sure she added great joy to the world with her life.  Tom Crowley

We were in the same home room.  What a nice, gentle caring person. Never said anything negative about anyone   

Her family should be proud of what she gave to others  

Another very sad passing of one of our classmates

 I feel so sad about both Janet and Phyllis. We were all such good friends.  I loved my girlfriends in HS.  This all brings back such wonderful memories of all the fun we had. My sympathy to both ur families
