Janette Lee Peterson Hawley was born to Doris and Milton Peterson on May 10, 1953 in Renton. She passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 4, 2019 at the age of 66. Thankfully, she was surrounded by loving family members in her home of 21 years in Ravensdale. She was raised most of her life in Seattle and graduated from Enumclaw High School. She was a giving and loving sister to 14 brothers and sisters. Janette was woman of God who used her Christian calling to teach children’s fellowship. She blessed everyone with her unbreakable faith that will stay with them always. The lyrics to “Love Child”, one of her favorite songs by Stevie Kay, will live on in her family forever. Janette was a loving mother to four children Rene, Annie, Joshua, and Matthew as well as a devoted wife to her husband of 25 years Sean. She would tell you her proudest accomplishment was being a grandma to Jacob Houston age14 and Madison Adaline Morrow age 10.
