Janet Ruth Voshel, 73, of Shelby, passed away at her home on Thursday, May 16, 2019.
Janet was born on March 10, 1946 in Oak Hill, Ohio. She was the daughter of Winfield and Lillie (Hendershott) Brock.
Janet was very family oriented and truly cherished the times she spent with her children and grandchildren. She had a love for sports and watched golf as much as she could, especially Tiger Woods. She was an avid fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes, Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Cleveland Indians. She loved to bake, cook, and tend to her flowers. Janet was a true fighter having battled MS for 44 years, however, she never let it defeat her. She knew her strength came from God. Janet was very spiritual and prayed everyday. Recently, she had a very spiritual experience, she dreamed for weeks that she had been walking all night long. The next morning she would wake up very tired. A vision of what was to come for Janet when God called her home.
Janet leaves behind to cherish many fond memories, her children, Lisa (Troy) Jarrett of Ashland, Lori (Dan) Beasley of Ontario, and Eric (Christine) Voshel of Shelby; grandchildren, Bradley Cronenwett of Orlando, Florida, Megan (Corey Cox) Cronenwett of Columbus, Jessica (Trent) Brasseur of Mansfield, Zachary Beasley of Columbus, Logan Pena of Ontario, Kayden, Grayson, Lily and Leah Voshel all of Shelby; great-grandchildren, Kelsey, Bryson, Emma and Aubrey Brasseur; sisters, Frances Smith of Mansfield and Judy Burge of Florida; brothers, James (Julia) Brock and Bobby (Claudia) Brock both of Florida; nieces, Rita Brock and Paula Burge; and several other nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband in December 2008, Harley Voshel; and four brothers and two sisters.
