Janet F. Steele, 85, of Akron, passed peacefully surrounded by her family and loved ones on April 18, 2019. She was born on April 4, 1934 to the late William and Minnie Bell Klepper. She was born and raised in Lakemore, Ohio. Janet had a very strong work ethic. She retired from Edwin Shaw Hospital after many years of nursing. After retirement, she worked at Sears and Village Laundry until she was 80 years old. Janet loved spending time outside. She enjoyed gardening, feeding the birds, watching her squirrels, and her dogs, Sadie and Andy. She was an avid bowler for many years, and loved going to Amish country and thrift store shopping with her sister. Above all, Janet cherished spending time with her family, especially her eight grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.

Janet was preceded in death by her great-grandson, Dillon Gohl; son-in-law, Alan Lowery; and many brothers and sisters.

She will be deeply missed by her daughters, Darlene Lowery, Cindy Shumski, and Fay (Matt) Gohl; sister, Gladys Nicolard; grandchildren, Sarah (David) and family, Ashley (Zach), Jessica and family, Kristy and family, Matthew II and family, Aaron (Linda) and family, Amanda (Efrain) and family, and Joshua (Ashley) and family; special niece, Pam Nicolard; and special friends, Gogo, Ron, Carol, Ray and Shirley; and other family members and friends.

There will be an open house Celebration of Janet's Life on Saturday April 20, 2019 from 1:00pm until 8:30pm held at Janet's residence.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation in Janet's name to either an animal organization of your choice, or the Williams Syndrome Association at www.williams-syndrome.org in honor of her grandson, Jonah.
