Janet graduated from Moline High School in 1965 and enjoyed participating in the planning of many reunions. She loved being a part of Questers in Cedar Falls and being a part of The Little Red School House. She had a small gift store in the early 80's called The Gift Barn and enjoyed being a business owner for many years. Playing with flowers was her lifelong passion and she created so many beautiful arrangements and designed hundreds of weddings over the 25+ years she was a floral designer. She married Bernie Larsen on June 18, 1994, in Cedar Falls. He died April 5, 2018.
She had two daughters, Whitney (Ryan) Witt of Grand Island, Nebraska, and Meredith (Archie) Elkins of Foley, Alabama.

She had two brothers, Donald (Claudette) Swensson of Moline, and Ronald (deceased) (Karen) Swensson; several nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
