She was born on October 5, 1952, in Bethany, MO, the youngest of four children to Donald Marion and Gwynetha (Howard) Teel. Janet was the only one among her siblings born in a hospital. She spent 68 years on the family farm, which she always considered home. On September 28, 1975, she was baptized at the Pattonsburg Baptist Church. After graduating from Pattonsburg High School on May 13, 1970, she continued to live with her mother and worked on the family farm, especially after her father’s passing in 1973. Before starting her career in healthcare, she worked at a local cap factory. Janet dedicated 20 years to working as a CNA and CMT in Albany and Bethany, MO. She had a special place in her heart for her nieces and nephews, as long as they were well-behaved.

In her leisure time, Janet enjoyed reading romance novels and watching soap operas with her mother. She loved Eddie Rabbit’s music and took great joy in caring for the cats and kittens on the farm.
