Janet dearly loved her family. She had a special bond with her sisters that continued through the years. She was born on March 23, 1944, to Al and Hazel (Hull) Schumann and raised on a farm in Chariton (near Derby).
Janet married her childhood sweetheart, Garry Throckmorton, on May 24, 1959. To this union, the couple was blessed with two sons, Mike and Mark. She was also blessed with two special girls, Breana and Hope.
As Garry would contest, Janet was a beautiful lady, both in body and spirit. She had such compassion for others, showing a deep unconditional love for her family and friends. She was a loyal, honorable, and thoughtful person. It was a blessing to know Janet.
Janet worked in the medical field for 40 years, retiring in 2004. She did enjoy golfing in her free time. She and Garry were members at Humeston Golf Course for many years.
Janet will be dearly missed by her husband of 63 years, Garry; son, Mike (Laurie) Throckmorton; grandson, Ian Throckmorton; siblings: Joyce (Fred) Throckmorton, Bud Schumann, and Judy (Lyle) Dorsey; sisters-in-law: Carmen, Carolyn, Joyce, and Sharon Sheets; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her son, Mark; parents, Al and Hazel; an infant sister, Jewell; three brothers: Don, Hubert, and Gary, and then there were three.
