She was predeceased by 2 brothers, Laverne Benner and Ralph Benner (Renee'). She is survived by several cousins, nieces and nephews. When Janet was young her family relocated to Newtown Pa. to the Taylor chicken farm. She helped gathering eggs and did other chores around the farm. Janet attended school in the Council Rock district and sang in the school choir and went on to graduate in 1959. She enjoyed working on the planning committee for her class reunion with longtime friends. Her first job was working for the Agway feed store ( formerly known as the Newtown Co-op ). While working at Agway she met and later married Robert H. Leedom in June of 1961.
Janet and Bob co-owned and operated Leedom's Welding and Fabricating Inc., they also started Leedom's fireplace shop. Janet went on running the Newtown location for many years while keeping books for the family business.
Janet loved the many camping trips with her family and friends. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, she was so proud of them and their accomplishments. She rarely missed watching the Phillies play and even attended some games in person. Making the holidays special for her family was always "very" important to her! Mom was an amazing homemaker, she taught her children many lifelong skills! We'll never forget our trips to the beach and mountains and family Canasta games.
She fought a long courageous battle with Multiple Myeloma. There will be a private Interment.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
