Janet Robinson Obituary, Death – At the age of 74, Janet Karen Robinson passed away on Tuesday, November 29, 2022, at the Genesis Morrison House located in Zanesville, Ohio. In Zanesville, Ohio, on June 9, 1948, Kenneth G. (Mutt) and Doris “Jean” Spencer Robinson welcomed their first child. She was raised in Morgan County as a farmer’s daughter and had a deep love for all kinds of animals, but her horses held a special place in her heart. She was a member of the M-M High School Class of 1966 when she graduated. She got her first job at a young age in a coffee shop and later moved on to a job in the manufacturing industry in Malta.
Her primary responsibility in life was the upbringing of her four children as well as any younger siblings or friends that her offspring brought home after school or on the weekends. She worked very hard her entire life, first as a cook in a variety of restaurants and other establishments, and then later as a caregiver for elderly people. She was known for her incredible culinary skills. She donated her time to the Community Action organization and was a member of the Board of Directors for several years.
She never met a stranger in her life and was always happy to strike up a conversation with whoever she ran into at the supermarket. She continued to participate in extracurricular sports like softball well into her 40s despite reaching that age. She had an incredible talent for gardening and could grow almost anything. Over the course of the past year, she has fought the lung cancer she was diagnosed with with tremendous bravery and determination. Her love for God and her devotion to Bible studies were two of her greatest passions.
She is survived by her sister, Mary Beth Robinson (Michael Gibeaut), of McConnelsville; her brother, Donald Robinson; her children, (Tad) Lawrence Eugene Archer, Jr., (Shelly Gardner) of Nashport, OH, Telah Taylor (Scott), of Marietta, Tisha Archer of Heath, Tori (Jim) Shuster of McConnelsville; and her stepson, Kevin Archer (Sara), of Olmstead. Her grandchildren, Hannah Cotton of Florida, Hallie Fier (Scott) of Lancaster, Devan Benjamin (Alexis) of Marietta, Cade Plotts, Corbin Plotts, and Collin Morrow of Heath, Tanner Campbell of Columbus, James Wyatt Shuster, Jackson Shuster, and Cole Shuster of McConnelsville, were the sources of her greatest happiness in life. Her grandchildren, in her mind, were angels from heaven, and they brought her an indescribable amount of happiness. When she was with them, she felt the most joy and contentment in her life. She had a soft spot in her heart for all of her grandpups.
Her parents, a brother named Kenneth George Jr., and the biological father of her children, Larry George, all passed away before she did (Lawrence Eugene Archer, Sr.). The Morrison House and Genesis Hospice provided excellent end-of-life care, and the family would like to express their gratitude to both facilities. On Friday, December 2, visitation will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Miller-Huck Funeral Home, which is located at 62 S. 7th Street in McConnelsville, Ohio. The funeral services will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, December 3, and the family will begin receiving guests at 10 a.m. in the morning. In lieu of sending flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Genesis Hospice, the McConnelsville Methodist Church Lunch Outreach, or any other charity of your choosing.
