In memory of
JANIS K. SENGSTACK
JANIS K. SENGSTACK (Age 89) On June 11, 2016. Born in Orange, VA and longtime resident of McLean, VA. She was preceded in death by husband, Smokey Sengstack. Survivors include daughter, Melissa (Rick) Robol of Worthington OH; son, Book Sengstack of Warrenton VA; five grandchildren; and brother, Roderick Knighton of Orange, VA. Janis was a medical technologist at the Arthritis Center of Chevy Chase, MD. This Girl Scout leader welcomed all when others did not, saying "it takes black and white keys to play the piano." She lived independently (despite trouble walking, breathing, seeing and hearing), using geometry and guts to get from recliner to motorized wheelchair to Bible study, the gym and anywhere she needed. True grit. Never gave up. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to the Wesley Glen Piano Fund, Methodist ElderCare Services, 2229 Taylor Park Dr, Reynoldsburg OH 43068 so it plays another century. A 3 p.m. funeral on October 20, 2016 precedes her burial in Arlington National Cemetery.
