After a sunny afternoon’s drive back home, Siubhan passed away last Wednesday, May 28, 2014, at the age of 89.
Siubhan was born in Louisiana before coming out west and starting a family in San Jose with husband Jack, where she enjoyed a life in state and national politics, and did local good in the business of family daycare.
She happily made South Lake Tahoe her home after Jack’s passing, 18 years ago, and quickly got busy volunteering where she blossomed to enjoy the kind people and friendships she found at South Lake, including her friends at Christmas Cheer, the Cancer League, the S.T.A.R.s, the American Legion, the Senior Center, the tireless staff at Barton and of course her incredibly generous neighbors. Many knew her as Joyce Janet, or simply Janet, her legal given name.
She is survived by her son Andrew, grandson Connor, and of course her 3 cats Baby, Kitty & Puff. She will miss you all.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, June 7th at 1:00 at the SLT Senior Center.
