Janett was born June 20, 1944 in Paragould, Arkansas and moved to the Kansas City area as a girl.  She graduated from Lee’s Summit High School in 1962.  Primarily a homemaker, she had a passion for genealogy and history, sewing and quilting, refinishing primitive furniture, and family.  She adored and took great pride in her children and grandchildren.

Janett is survived by her husband, Delbert N. Miller, her daughter, Leah L. (and Richard) Swicegood, her son, Matthew S. (and Jennifer) Miller, and her two grandchildren, Hannah M. Miller and Ethan T. Miller.  She was preceded in death by her parents Meldrom E. and Gladys A. Rowland and her sister, Ginger D. Moon.

Deepest Sympathy to the Miller Family. Janett was one of the group leaders on my 2010 DAR Blue Bird trip to Washington DC. She was an outstanding DAR Leader and friend ~ she definitely will missed.

Farewell, my dear friend. I know you are having a blast with Pam! You were the best of friends and a source of guidance. You will be missed by many. My sincere condolences to Delbert, Leah, your son and all the family

My thoughts and prayers are with you Delbert, Leah and Matthew and your families! Just enjoyed a great messenger conversation with Janett earlier this month about family mysteries and genealogy! Will always cherish my “For Love of Granny” book that she put together for us too young to remember Granny Ethel the way she did!

Leah, I am so very sorry for your Mother. May the Lord wrap his loving arms around your family in this time of need.

I have been truly blessed to have known Janet . She took the time to know who you were and gladly shared of herself. In life theres only a few who we can call a friend. She was mine . I will miss our friendship.

Leah and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. She will always be know as a Warrior Angel. Her story is not over, she will guide others through this battle. May God give you comfort and peace. Love and hugs, Pam, Bill and Amanda Buffalow.

So sorry! I will miss laughing and showing off our grandchildren to each other!
May many precious memories sustain you.

I loved my dear cousin and her children
She was a great person and very talented. I will miss you!

So sorry to hear the news. Janett was a wonderful person and always had a smile on her face. She was a wonderful DAR member and presented excellent programs. She was always so much fun to be around.

To Janet’s family, I can only imagine how much you will miss this lady, as do so many friends she had and especially Prairie Chapter DAR. She touched us all, sad to know we won’t hear her or see her again.

Sincerely, Charlene Brown

I’m so sorry to hear about your family’s loss of your mother. With sympathy, I’ll keep you and your family in my thought and prayers.

I’m so sorry for your loss Leah, please let me know if I can do anything for you or your family. You are in my thoughts an prayers.

So sorry to hear of her passing. She was a wonderful lady and I enjoyed her DAR friendship.

Janett was truly full of life, joy, and love for her family, friends, DAR, and her many activities. May Jesus comfort you as you grieve her loss.

I will always cherish my contacts with Janett in Daughters of the American Revolution. She was so generous with her knowledge to everyone. A truly lovely lady who will be missed by many. Prayers for all who loved and will miss her.

You were not only my sweet, delightful cousin, you were my best friend. After not seeing each other for two years(I was a military wife) or longer, the REUNION was always wonderful. I didn”t get to say goodbye, I do trust your judgment. You will always be in my heart……….love you always and miss you still and always. Children of Janett, you are both so lucky, remember all the good times, we will think of you and yours often and know how blessed we were to have had her in our lives. Love and prayers to your dad and your families. Hugs, Judy

I’m sorry to have heard the news of Janett’s passing. I met her through DAR at my first State Conference in Columbia. She gave me the guts to get up onstage! Her laugh was fantastic- She will be missed. My deepest sympathy to the family.
