A sweet and large heart; a loving smile; and a kind manner are how we remember our mom, sister, and friend. She was always there for us no matter what. We’ll miss her forever. Life ends, but Love never does!

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Janet Yarno, 79, born on September 25, 1935 and passed away on November 3, 2014. Saying goodbye to our beloved mother, sister, and friend is the hardest thing we’ve ever had to do. We will remember her loving manner and easy laughter forever.

Janet left behind 2 children, Richard (Rick) of Aurora, CO and Catherine (Kay) of Durango, CO, and her one much-adored grandson, Nicolas, also of Durango, CO. She is also survived by her brother (Dick) and two sisters (Jean and Betty), as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Janet fought a brave battle with cancer for several years, but it wore her down and she just couldn't beat the wicked illness. She died in her home in Aurora where she lived for 22 years, surrounded by her children and much-loved dog and cat.

Please join us for a Celebration of Life gathering with friends and family on Sunday, November 16 at 1PM at Mom’s home. We'll have a simple eulogy at 2:00 pm with an informal sharing of stories followed by some food and friendship. You are welcome to come any time after 1:00 pm and stay for as long as you like.   

Address: 19417 E Purdue Cir, Aurora, Colorado
What to bring: Your love and stories of Janet
Parking: On the streets nearby.  Somewhat limited, so consider carpooling.

I worked with Janet at Shalom Park for 13 years. She fussed over the residents in her care like a mother hen. She would not tolerate them coming to meals with stains on their clothing and would inspect behind their ears for cleanliness just like their mother. The residents and family members all loved her as did all the staff. She was a sweetheart, filled with compassion and kindness for all. In addition, she loved her pets like nobody's business. We all love you, Janet. The world has lost one of its precious pearls!

Janet, when I think of you, how many wonderful memories come to my mind. You were an awesome nurse and friend. You marked so many lives, not only your patients but those around you. I will miss you, I am so blessed to have known you!

I have known and worked along side of her for 22 years. She was a dedicated nurse, always feisty and caring towards me .She was more than a friend, like family to me. " The wind beneath my wings." We could and did tell each other anything. Except she did not tell me for several months that she was so ill .Believe me I told her that was not acceptable and we spent her last weeks together at her home.You were supposed to be around to take care of me! What a gift to have had you in my life.
