Janet Lee Kirchhof, 69, of Howell passed away on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 at her home surrounded by her family after a courageous battle with cancer. Janet was a homemaker and a loving wife, mother, sister and grandmother. She was a communicant of St. Martha’s RC Church in Point Pleasant. She was a licensed amateur radio operator with a call sign of KA2VTN. Janet was an avid Gardner who enjoyed planting flowers. She enjoyed long walks on the boardwalk and searching for sea glass on the beach and evening rides on our Harley by the beach. Anyone that knows Janet knew that her pride was in her home and her family and her beloved dog Snoopie. She was a selfless caring woman who always had a smile on her face and always ready to lend a hand to anyone in need.

Born in Hackensack, she lived in Paramus before moving to the Ramtown section of Howell 25 years ago.
