Janet Shepherd

September 19, 1955 — May 10, 2020

Janet L Shepherd, 64, passed away at the Kobacker House hospice in Columbus on Sunday May 10th, 2020 after a 6 month battle with gallbladder cancer. She was an avid baker and teacher, and made friends wherever she went.

Born in Wheeling, WV in 1955 to Harold and Frances (nee Barton) Shepherd, Janet spent the first 16 years of her life in Belmont county before heading to Santa Fe, Argentina for study abroad-- and this was the beginning of her lifelong love of travelling. Always eager to explore and experience new things, Janet spent parts of her life in Argentina, Florida, Georgia, West Virginia, and Ohio (Akron, Bethesda, and Columbus).

Janet often said her best adventure was raising her three children, Matthew (35), Carmen (30), and Micah (28), and was immensely proud of them. She was preceded in death by her parents, and survived by her children, brothers David (Tamara) and James (Becky) Shepherd, and nieces and nephews Nichole, Jaime, Alexus, David, and Clayton, and countless friends. She will be intensely missed. A memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, condolences can be made in the form of donations to cancer research, the Kobacker House hospice in Columbus, OH, or your local school system.
