My sympathy to Janine’s family. So sorry to hear this news. Janine was my first friend when my family moved to Hutchinson in 5th grade. She lived kitty-corner from me and we spent almost every day together playing. She would organize “camps” for the neighborhood kids in the summer. Lots of sleep-overs and trips to the corner store for candy. She was a wonderful friend. Sending prayers for all her family.
I am so sorry for your loss…May you hold her memories tight and cherish each and everyone and pass them down to keep the wonderful fond memories going….May you find peace and serenity….May God bless you and hold your family in his embracing arms…

I was saddened & blessed, to have known Janine, for a short period of time. She served & waited on me @ the 10th street Hy-vee. We had our age & being Minnesota natives in common. I was born 5-31-1959, in Minneapolis & had a cousin, who had lived in Hutchinson, for many years. She will be greatly missed, by my Coffee Buddies & Me!
