Janet Lee Neds, 77, of Kansas City, MO, died October 26, 2019. She was born in Great Bend, KS on May 15, 1942. She graduated from Elk City High School and continued her education at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, MO.
Janet and Edward Neds were married on August 25, 1968 in Lafontaine, KS and moved to Kansas City, MO shortly thereafter. They found a spiritual home at NorthsideChristian Church, in Gladstone, MO where they made lifelong friends, and in recent years, attended Clay County Christian Church in Liberty, MO.
Faith and family were important to Janet. She worked as a childcare provider both inside and outside of the home, working for the North Kansas City School District and Oak Hill Day School. She travelled to Southeast Kansas frequently to visit her family and displayed photos of family everywhere in her home so she could remain close to them.
She loved praise music. Janet learned to play hymns on the organ from her mother, sang in the church choir and only missed Sunday school when she was hospitalized. Though she struggled with illnesses throughout her life, she was always faithful. She loved God and this strength of faith made her a good servant of the Word.
Janet is survived by her devoted husband, Edward Neds, their two children Ronald Neds (Heather) and Michelle (Neds) Anderson; their grand-daughters Courtney, AnnaLee, Madison Neds and Kameryn, Jadyn Anderson; her sisters Arlene Stelting (Jim), Sharon Speer (Robert), Jodi Foster (Frank) and step siblings Roger Surber (Kris)and Margaret Wright (Ken).
