Janet Mohrfeld Brown

March 3, 1955 ~ July 17, 2014 (age 59)


Janet (Mohrfeld) Brown passed away on July 17, 2014 after fighting a long 7-year battle with ovarian cancer. Janet was born in Chicago on March 3, 1955, and was the daughter of Donald and Florence Mohrfeld. She is predeceased by her mother and sisters-in-law Kitty and Jane Mohrfeld.

Janet leaves behind Eric - her devoted and dedicated husband of 28 years, Ted - her close and loving son, and her beloved dog Lucy. She is survived by father Donald, brothers Kenny, David and Richard Mohrfeld and sister Gail (Thomas) Taylor. Also surviving are nieces Alicia (Jimmy) Duss, Abigail Taylor, Valerie (Josh) Grant, Nicole (Regis) Rumpf and nephew Thomas Taylor.

She was an avid reader and loved going to flea markets and yard sales (especially when she found a great bargain). She loved Monster Sudoku, crocheting and all kinds of crafts. Janet was a long time member of a Precept Bible Study which she enjoyed immensely.

She is saddened to leave her sister Gail, cousin Sheryl, and close friends Liz, Shari, Estelle and Margaret. She sends a shout-out to her Teal Sisters Judy, Cathie, Marcie, Tina, Darlene and special friend Tiffany to 'Never give up!"" She will greatly miss the loving, supportive women in her Bible Study who never left her side throughout her entire ordeal. Janet leaves a big hug to all the ""Waterboyz"" who have been so incredibly supportive of her husband. She also wants to thank her husband's managers/co-workers and friends for their understanding and compassion towards us during this ordeal. The family also wants to remember their wonderful neighbors.

Janet and her family want to especially thank Dr. Kanan Hudhud, our oncologist and friend, for not only prolonging her life with his outstanding care but for also filling her journey with both hope and humor. The family also wants to acknowledge the wonderful staff at the Mt. Airy Cancer Center for taking such good care of her these many years.

A private Christian Interment and graveside service will be conducted at Resthaven Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, food, etc. the family is requesting donations be made to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) at Ladies, please visit this site to learn the symptoms of ovarian cancer which were all typical in Janet's case -most ovarian cancer is often diagnosed at a very late stage due to a severe lack of awareness
