Janet Arlene Kauffman died at Landis Homes Monday, July 9, 2012.
She was born on July 20, 1921, in Gap, the daughter of Jesse and Elsie (Kauffman) Byler.
She graduated at the top of her class from Salisbury Township High School. On Sept. 28, 1940, she married Ammon S. Kauffman, who died in 2009.
Janet was a founding member of Neffsville Mennonite Church, where she was active in the leadership of the children’s educational program and the women’s sewing circle. She furthered her education with adult education classes at East Lampeter High School and courses at the Lancaster School of the Bible. For many of her working years she was a manager and clerk in the gift shops at Plain & Fancy Restaurant. Before that, she had been a secretary for Ralph Graham’s trucking business and Sam Fisher’s hay and straw business. At Landis Homes, where she lived for 17 years, she spent many hours volunteering in various ways.
Janet is survived by two children: Mary Ellen, wife of Willard Martin; and Richard, husband of Suzanne; one brother: Robert, husband of Ruth Byler; four grandchildren: Stefan Martin, Chris Kauffman Weaver, Jeremy Kauffman and Derek Martin; and six great-grandchildren.
