"Good things come in small packages."
Janet Lucille Brawley, 81, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday afternoon, June 1, 2021.
She was born on December 20th, 1939 and graduated from Kent Roosevelt High School with the class of 1957.
Despite being a petite woman, Janet was a giant of a matriarch. She married her high school sweetheart and enjoyed caring for her large family and 140 acre farm. In 1976, she and her husband Jim opened a restaurant in Salem, Ohio. They are credited with the restaurant's popularity and success for many years, until they both retired in 2002.
Janet will be forever remembered as a selfless, generous, and loving wife, mother, and grandmother who always put her family first. Her husband describes her as "The love of my life." She enjoyed flowers and gardening and had a sweet spot in her heart for cats.
Janet is survived by her husband of over 63 years, James "Jim" Brawley, of Salem; daughters, Lou Ann and Bob McCracken of Salem, Melinda and William Penfold of Salem, Jamie Brawley of Newton Falls, Cynthia and Jamie Brawley of Canton, and grandchildren Miah Brawley, Maddie Penfold, and Lily Brawley.
Graveside services will be held at Standing Rock Cemetery in Kent, Ohio on Friday, June 11th at 1:00 P.M.
Janet Brawley you will forever be a giant in our hearts. We love you!
