Janet R. Hohenbrink

Today our family lost a very special person. She was a mother, grandmother, wife, and great friend. She was part tom-boy from growing up with three brothers and part lady because of her mother’s influence on her life. She loved campfire and hot dog roasts, the sound of birds singing and frogs croaking. She enjoyed Mother Nature and scenic pictures, as well as traveling. When we think of her passing, we remember her gentle nature, great sense of humor, and a person to turn to in troubling times.
Janet R. Hohenbrink age 72, of Leipsic, died Tuesday morning at St. Rita’s Mercy Health in Lima.
