Notes for Janet Lynn Tjarks:
      It was as though my memory was frozen in time.
      On December 3, 1999 my wife Joyce and I attended the funeral of my cousin Janet Tjarks Huffman.      
      Janet was the daughter of Donald and Ellen Tjarks.
      Services for Janet were held at the Grace Lutheran church in Champaign, Illinois. Officiating was The Most Reverend Roger Digges.
      Janet died of cancer. She was fifty years old. Yet in my mind I could still vividly recall the beautiful slender dark haired little girl who used to stop by our house on Gulf Stream Ave., in Bartonville, on her way home from school.
      Janet was a lovely little girl and thatís how I knew and remember her.
      Janetís death was not unexpected for she had suffered from her illness for a long time.
      But when death came it was still very hard to accept and it saddened all of us a great deal.
      As Reverend Digges spoke of Janet, the mother of two children and the grandmother of three little ones, a picture immerged of Janet Lynn Huffman, that makes her passing even more difficult to accept. It is very clear that a woman of this magnitude will sorely be missed.
      Janet was described by her Pastor as a woman of wisdom who guided people to good decisions that were reached during difficult times.
      Pastor Digges spoke of Janetís strong faith in God and he told us of the courage and strength that she had in dealing with her illness.           
      It was clear to all of us that Janetís love of her family had given her the strength to extend her life with her children and her grandchildren.
      Janet Lynn Tjarks Huffman was, without question, a respected, loving, courageous, and wise woman, who we will all miss.
