Janet Louise Pitts 82, of Pitts Road, Jamestown, went peacefully to her eternal reward at 9:50pm on Saturday, November 2, 2019 in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by her family.

Shortly after her marriage she brought her younger siblings into her home and cared for them. Janet and James moved to Jamestown, PA where they purchased a small farm and raised six children. 

Janet worked at Andover Industries for 15 years, helping to support her family and making many friends in the process. She was very creative and throughout the years she enjoyed painting ceramics, needlepoint and crocheting.  She loved the outdoors and had many good times camping with her siblings and children. Janet was an avid reader and really enjoyed a spirited debate. She was known for her green thumb and through the years grew lush gardens and breathtaking roses. Her happiest moments were spent surrounded by her children and grandchildren. Family and friends always looked forward to her baked goods, especially at Christmas time,.

Treasured memories of Janet will be carried by her siblings; Chuck Starkey and his wife Ebby, James Starkey and his wife Vickie, Sue Chizmer, her children Judy Pitts wife of James, Darlene Sutton, Elenore Thurber and her husband Roger, Chuck Pitts and his wife Cathy, Robert Pitts and his wife Lorraine and Michael Pitts and his wife Sara. 11 Grandchildren and 8 Great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild.
