Janet worked at Advance Auto in New Bremen for many years and then worked for Crown until her retirement. Janet was active in Faith Alliance Church in New Bremen and New Bremen Senior Citizens until her health no longer allowed her to participate in those activities. Janet also enjoyed sewing, playing cards, bowling, polka dancing, attending local concerts, watching the Reds on television and taking bus trips to Cincinnati to watch them play live. She was also very active with the board of elections in Auglaize County as a poll worker for many years. Janet is survived by her brother, David Lybarger of Ft. Wayne, Indiana; her children, LuAnne Shelby (James Gaskill) of Columbus, Ohio, Ned Koenig (fiancé Lee Price) and Lynn Koenig, all of New Bremen; and three grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
