Janette Marie Ronnow February 4, 1946 - October 11, 2013

Janette Marie Ronnow, resident of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, passed away on October 11, 2013. She was born in Denver, Colorado, on February 4, 1946 and was raised by her loving parents William Samuel and Teresa Lucinda Evans, along with her brother Gary Cheney.
Jan is survived by her son James Karbo and wife Dianna, son Rick Karbo and wife Teresa, daughter Tracy Schoenbeck and husband Joseph, daughter Mary Martin and husband Jim. She is also survived by four grandchildren, Kathryn Janette Karbo, Kyle James Karbo, Cassidy Janette Martin, and Megan Nicole Martin.
Jan attended Amphitheater High School in Tucson, Arizona and graduated in 1963. She spent most of her life in Arizona, Nevada and Oklahoma. Throughout her life, she worked hard, volunteered often and furthered her education, all while raising children at a young age.
Jan will always be remembered as an amazing mother, a wonderful grandmother and a friend to all. She was such a loving, generous, kind hearted soul who touched so many lives on a daily basis. She felt joy in helping others and impacted many by lending an ear, offering a kind word, a smile or a warm embrace. She would never forget your birthday, make meals to share with friends, and volunteer to clean your house if she thought it would ease your burden or bring you joy. She was gifted with the ability to find the right words when you needed to hear them the most.
Over the years Jan discovered her passion for genealogy and spent many diligent hours researching and uncovering her ancestral heritage. Family was always a priority in her life and through her passion she has passed down a legacy for us all to remember.
Jan found great pleasure in her many hobbies. She loved animals, grew beautiful gardens, crocheted blankets for family and friends, enjoyed listening to music and going to concerts, and was an avid reader.
A funeral service celebrating her life will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2013 at 11:00 AM at Buchanan Funeral Service, 8712 N Council Rd, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73132.
Jan's spirit will always be with us, just as surely as God is holding her in His loving embrace.
