Janet M. Peve, 73, of Blue Springs, MO passed away April 11th after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.
She was born June 22, 1941 to Merton and Grace Hardy in Independence, MO. Janet was a member of the RLDS church. She was a graduate of Van Horn High School (class of ‘59), and married her high school sweetheart, Billy Lee Peve on September 22, 1962. Janet held various clerical and bookkeeping positions with Spencer Chemical & KW Dart before becoming a stay at home mom for her children, Brian and Michelle. When Billy was called to heaven in January 1983, Janet continued to focus solely on raising her kids. In addition to her children, the greatest joy of her life was being blessed with five grandchildren. She loved attending their school and sporting events.
Janet’s interests included reading, clipping recipes, working in her yard and shopping. She was a proud survivor of breast cancer, a person of inspiration, strength, character and selflessness.
Janet was preceded in death by her husband and parents. She is survived by her children Brian Peve (Jeanne) and Michelle Rush (Tim) of Lee’s Summit, MO; brother Charles Hardy of Coldwater, MI; sister Carol Gillmor of Blue Springs, MO; grandchildren Tucker, McKenzie, Jacob, Brett and Natalie.
