Janine had a passion for animals, particularly cats. She loved listening to music and attended concerts with friends and family, including her sons throughout her life.

She was known for her generosity, laughing until in tears and her kind and trusting nature.

She is survived by her greatly – loved sons Chavis (Cassie Rust) and Brandon (fiancé Jordan Halvorson), granddaughter Ella, brother Curt, sister JoAnn, sister-in-law Mary, several cousins, nieces and nephews and her cherished cats Denali and Snickers.
