Janet 'Jan' Sue Bertram

May 5, 1938 - Jan. 6, 2014

Janet “Jan” Sue Bertram, 75, passed away and went to be with the Lord Monday, Jan. 6, 2014, in Kokomo. Janet was born May 5, 1938, in New Castle, to Roy and Margaret (Fielding) Garvin.

Here, she met many friends who were dear to her heart. She enjoyed time spent with them, whether it was taking road trips, walking the great outdoors, gathering for weekly luncheons or attending concerts in the park.

Most importantly, Janet was a beloved wife, mother and grandmother who was devoted to her family. She was especially fond of attending sporting, school and church activities in which her daughters and granddaughters participated. She also made many personal sacrifices for her loved ones throughout her life. She was truly an inspiration to her family and will be greatly missed.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Knox; her sister, Mary Raines; and her brother-in-law, Bruce Raines.
