In memory of
JANET FARHA
Janet Joy Farha October 27, 1936 - February 9, 2020 LEE'S SUMMIT, MO 83, went to be with the Lord on February 9, 2020. She was born October 27, 1936, in Wichita , KS to LaBebe and Negla Farha. Janet grew up in Wichita, and since she did not have sib-lings, she was ex-tremely close to her many cousins. She had a particularly strong bond with her cousin, Norman Farha, who was like a brother to her. After graduating from North High School, she attended Stephens College in Columbia, MO. She then came home to Wichita State University where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and was a member of Delta Gamma Sorority. Janet married Floyd Farha, Jr. on August 24, 1958 at St. George Orthodox Christian Church. Early in their marriage, they lived in Dayton, OH then Lawrence, KS. In 1965, Floyd and Janet moved to Bartlesville, OK where they loved and raised their four daughters. These girls were her heart and soul. Janet was very active in their lives, volunteering as home-room mom and Girl Scout Leader. The family regularly attended St. Luke's Episcopal Church where Janet served in the Altar Guild. She was actively involved with the Bona Dea Club, the Childhood Development Club, and the Delta Gamma alumnae. Not until her girls were in high school did she begin accompanying Floyd on his business trips around the world. In 1986, Janet and Floyd moved to Oklahoma City and Janet became a volunteer at Mercy Hospital. Janet welcomed 12 grand-children into the world and could be counted on to change diapers and rock fussy babies whenever the opportunity arose. Sittie's home was always filled with love, family and plenty of Lebanese food. Janet is preceded in death by Floyd, her husband of almost 60 years, and her parents. She is survived by her four daughters: Marlys (Steve) Bratton, Jennifer (Patrick) Landon, Andrea Miller, Jill (Matthew) Mountain. She is also survived by 12 grandchildren: Reid and Kyle Bratton, Melanie (Nathan) Casteel, Elizabeth (Ryan) Decker, David, Rachel, and Nicholas Landon, Kelsey Miller, and Ashley, Drew, Nate, and Josh Mountain. The family would like to give special thanks to the many home care aides who helped care for Janet in both OKC and Lee's Summit, MO. Donations can be made to: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Pl., Memphis, TN 38105 or St. Paul's Episcopal Church at 127 NW 7th St., Oklahoma City, OK 73102 or Mercy Hospital, Volunteer Services, 4300 W.
