Janet Ann (Cline) Albitz

January 6, 2022

After traveling to over 40 countries, taking more than a dozen cruises, and visiting all 50 states, Janet Albitz made her final journey Thursday morning, January 6, 2022 when she went to meet our heavenly father.

Janet was known as a lover of animals, flowers, people, and especially her family.  Janet never knew a stranger and many people remember her for her smile and taking time to not only talk to but listen to everyone.  Janet was born to the late LF “Pete” and Maxine Cline of Frankfort on November 3, 1943.  She graduated from Frankfort High School and Purdue University with a degree in English and a minor in French.  She later went on to get her Masters in English at Indiana University of Kokomo.  She wed William L. Albitz of Jefferson, Ind. on August 8, 1965.  She served as a substitute teacher in the area for many years, mainly in the Clinton Prairie School system before retiring to spend more time with her husband and caring for their children and eventually grandchildren.  She was known for painting Christmas displays on her parents’ window.  As a part time job, she delivered for CVS.  She was seen not only traveling around the world but attending many school activities and sporting events where she rarely missed any for 2 generations no matter where and how far she and Bill had to travel.

    My favorite memories of Janet are of giving me perms and her grandchildren wanting her to help them pass levels on video games! Of course, the best one is her nickname! She will be missed by all who knew her.

    I was sorry to read of Janet’s passing. Her mom, Maxine, and my mom worked together at Mallory’s. One summer Janet watched my brother and me while Mom was working. We had a fun time that summer. It was always a pleasure to run into Janet and share updates in our lives. Thinking of her has brought back pleasant memories from long ago. I hope everyone in the family has his/her own special memories to bring a smile as well as comfort and peace.
