She married the love of her life, Ingvar “Ole” G. Arneson on July 2, 1955 at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church. They were blessed with 64 years of wonderful memories together. Raising her six children was the highlight of her life. Janet was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was the organizer and planner of the family. Janet worked alongside Ole in their family businesses as his financial advisor. She was an active member at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church where she held many roles over the years, including Sunday School teacher, member of the choir, leader of the Elizabeth Circle, and Chairwoman of the Circles. Janet was a quiet, reserved person, but always had a kind word for everyone she met. Janet enjoyed flowers and was an expert gardener. She was an avid reader and enjoyed reading history novels and documentaries. Ice Cream brought her much joy. Janet was known for her scalloped potatoes and ham and her mouth-watering cookies. Janet and Ole could be found taking road trips in their Hudson. They found pleasure dancing with each other. Janet and Ole would travel to Texas in their 5th wheel. They went on many excursions together: Greece, Norway, the Caribbean, Alaska, Hawaii, and Hong Kong. They were members of their Sheepshead card club for 64 years. Janet is loved and will be deeply missed.
