Janet H. Britt, of New Whiteland, age 81, passed away Wednesday, November 17, 2021.
She was a graduate of Manuel High School in Indianapolis. She was a proud and devoted member of the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Franklin. Janet had many things she was passionate about, such as the church, but perhaps nothing more so than her devoted, 45-year history of being one of the most respected and highly regarded babysitters for countless families in the Johnson County community. Hundreds of children have childhoods filled with beautiful memories of Janet and they meant even more to her. Prior to babysitting, she worked at the phone company. Janet’s talents were many, and beyond babysitting she was a beloved wife to her husband of 40 years, Gene Britt, who preceded her in death in 2003.
She was a present and nurturing mother to her four children, Eric (Valerie Horsman), Vincent (Ann), Andrea, and Brian (Rhonda), a beloved grandmother to six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, and a loving sister to five siblings. Jeff and Patty are her surviving siblings; she was preceded in death by her sisters, Kay and Linda, and her brother, Barry. Her parents, Horace and Hazel, both preceded Janet in death. She also loved and was loved by a chosen sister, Carolyn Sebastian.
