March 20, 1938 ~ November 25, 2007
Janet Lorraine (Evans) Hildreth, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, died suddenly, unexpectedly, and inexplicably on November 25 at her home in Torrance. Janet was born March 20th 1938 in Lynn MA, she is 69.
Janet is the only child to Carl and Esther (White) Evans of Saugus MA. She attended Saugus High School and UNH before marrying and moving to Torrance CA to raise her family. Her family was priority #1 and Janet was the foundation, the rock that the family was built on.
Janet is a loving wife, a devoted mother and grandmother, a very loyal friend, and a dedicated life-long caretaker to God's birds and the beasts. There was no sick or injured animal that she would not take in and care for. Janet fought her own medical health battles and is a 10-year cancer survivor.
Janet is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, Robert Wendell Hildreth; daughter Holly Sharon Hildreth; son Jeffrey Scott Hildreth; daughter Kerry Kristin Geron; son-in-law Kevin Lewis Geron; much loved grandchildren Kami Kristin and Kurt Jeffrey; uncle Harold White; uncle Russell Ennis; aunt Francis Anderson; cousin Mrs. Nancy Rollins; cousins Daniel & Elliott White and families.
Janet will be missed by so many she cared for, befriended, and touched. Our sense of loss is deep and widespread and will be everlasting.
