KIENTZ, Janet L.

Janet Lea Kientz passed away Friday, November 25, 2022, in Kalamazoo, MI. She was born November 2, 1959, in Kalamazoo, MI a daughter of the late Dalton and Lois (Scott) Kientz. Janet graduated from Cadillac High School in 1977 and then went on to earn her bachelor’s in criminal justice from WMU.

Janet worked for Community Living Options for over 25 years. She loved her work and was a very compassionate person when taking care of those she was helping. Her passion for beauty was exercised in her gardening and working with cut stained glass for window hangings and beautiful jewelry. Janet enjoyed travelling with her sister and friends. She loved driving out to South Haven just to sit on the pier, people watch, sight see, and of course, stop for an ice cream cone.

Janet is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Lucie and Marty Moon. Janet is also survived by a cousin whom she called “my other sister”, Marie Wertz; brothers, Harry (Judy) Kientz and Gene (Judy) Kientz; and nieces and nephews, Jennifer Clark, Jamie (Steven) Moon, Joe (Nicole) Moon, Rick Clark, Steven (Linda) Kientz, Gary (Karen) Kientz, and Tom Kientz.
