Obituary

Janet Staines, age 85 of Fenwick, passed away on Friday, June 26, 2020, at her home under the loving care of her family and hospice.

Janet was a proud and determined woman and when she had made a decision and her mind was set there was no going back, you only moved forward. Growing up Janet was very talented and gifted musically and while she was able to play multiple instruments by ear her absolute favorite was the accordion. She was a member of three different bands throughout her lifetime. Janet was also a fantastic baker; her dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls were melt-in-your-mouth good and her pies and crusts were out of this world. Having been born and raised in Detroit, Janet was also a diehard Tigers fan and may at times have been known to share her thoughts and opinions of the game with the players, managers, and umps through the TV and radio. She also loved to bowl, tend to her garden, and was a caregiver for many years to her daughter, DeAnna and her in-laws. Janet was a member of Shiloh Community Church.

Surviving Janet is her daughter, Dawn Saladin of Fenwick; grandchildren, Ellie (Ian) MacDonald of Fenwick; Roxanne (Peter) Faber of Greenville; Katie (Nick Provo) Saladin of Lighthouse Point, Florida; great grandchildren, Boden; Wyatt; Chase; Ormand; Roman; Lucien; Thelen; brother, Jerry (Lillian) Smelik of Lake St. Louis, Missouri; cousin, John Smelik of Redford; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Carlton & Pam Staines of Tennessee; her good friend, Linda Trout of Greenville; many nieces and nephews; as well as lots of great friends and neighbors.

Janet was preceded in death by her parents, Anthony & Julia (Hilsky) Smelik; husband, Ormand Staines and their daughter, DeAnna Staines.

Visitation and a funeral ceremony celebrating Janet’s life are being held on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at Shiloh Community Church. Visitation will be from 10-11 AM, with the funeral ceremony beginning at 11 AM, with Pastor Ken Harger officiating. Final interment will be at Sunset Memorial Gardens in Ionia.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, everyone attending the visitation and funeral will be required to wear a mask.

For those wanting to make a memorial donation in Janet’s memory the family suggests you direct them to Shiloh Community Church. Envelopes will be available at the church.

Bern and I would like to say that we're thinking of you all during this time. Such a hard loss for you all. I always liked Janet, and we had two things in common: our name and being accordion players. Love to you all.

Janet
I will miss your smile
I will miss how you liked to negotiate
I will miss your music
I will miss the cinnamon rolls
I will miss your fun loving jokes
I will miss you my friend
But this is not goodbye I will see you again in heaven
Until then, play your music, dance, and sing your praises!!
I thank Jesus for you! ❤

About a hundred years ago, or so it seems, Janet made some rolls for a penny supper sponsored by the band at Central Montcalm High school. They were the best rolls I had ever tasted. She gave me her recipe and I have shared it with my children. In my recipe book, it's entitled "Janet Staines' Rolls." I also have fond memories of her and Ormand when Deanna was a junior high student at Sheridan. They were great parents and always supportive of the Sheridan staff. I was a counselor there at the time. May God's peace be with you.
