Julie Jean Janesko
Julie J. Janesko, 71, passed away peacefully at home after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.
Julie was the daughter of Matthew and Catherine Holek and was the youngest of six children. She graduated from Bishop Ward High School in 1967, and had a rewarding career of 32 years at Trans World Airlines. Julie married her high school sweetheart, Robert (Bob), and had two children, Sarah and Lisa.
Julie enjoyed the simple things in life. She loved a good ball game, her favorite tv shows, and perfecting a signature meal. She was particularly fond of her flowers and the birds that often visited her feeders. Most importantly, she cared for those close to her, always willing to lend a helping hand, offer advice, and hunt for the best deal. Her fondest memory was being a grandmother to her adored grandsons.
Julie is survived by her husband and partner in life Robert Janesko, her daughters Lisa (Jeffrey) Wiedemann and Sarah (Anthony) Orel, and her beloved grandchildren Andrew and Benjamin Wiedemann.
Her family wishes to thank the clinicians that provided the utmost care for her, her siblings, family, close friends, and neighbors who brought her joy and comfort during this time. We thank you and are forever grateful.
There will be a celebration of life mass at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Shawnee, KS on Friday, November 20th at 10:00 AM. Private mausoleum entombment will occur at Mount Calvary Cemetery in Kansas City, KS.
In lieu of flowers or contributions, we ask that you hold on tight to your memories for comfort, remember to spend those extra moments with the ones that you love, and take time to enjoy life and all that it offers.
