Obituary

Janet Ruth Jasper Butcher was born January 11, 1936 at Van Lear, KY to the late Charles Hyde Jasper and the late Mary Evelyn Conley Jasper. Janet married Norman Lee "Sonny" Butcher on August 11, 1960 and to this union was born a daughter Teri Leigh. Janet was preceded in death by her husband, her son in law: Kevin Middleton; and her sisters: Martha Russell and Marie Witten. She is survived by her daughter, her grandson: Benjamin Chad Middleton, her granddaughter: Jillian Lee Middleton of Richmond, KY. Two sister in laws: Roberta Butcher of Van Lear and Betty Colvin of Camden, OH. Two nieces, two nephews, and a host of friends and relatives.

Janet began working at a young age at babysitting, grocery store, and during her junior and senior year of high school began attending Mayo Vocational School taking business math, typing, shorthand, and book keeping. While she attended Mayo Vocational School in 1953 and 1954, she was called at school on December 15, 1954 by First Federal Savings and Loan Association to come to work and remained there until June 24, 2011.

In the 1960's she was named Who's Who in the South and Southeast among professional women. She was also named a Kentucky Colonel in the 1950's and was a member of the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.

To my in-laws Janet says she was so proud to be apart of your family. To my many close friends so glad you was apart of my life. To my coworkers who considered me as a mommy to them, I thank you for being my friend. Also to a special co-worker: Becky Fyffe who has been like a second daughter to me and has always been there when I needed her.

To my family take care of each other and I loved you. To my daughter remember I loved you dearly. To my grandchildren stay in church and live a good christian life. You was the light of my life.

She was a christian and a member of the Highland Church of Christ. Janet says she wants to thank her church family for all their kindness and love.

"God is good all the time and all the time God is good"
