She was born Oct. 10, 1943, in Washington, D.C., to James R. and Bernice M. (Hunt) Hall. Janet was 5 years old when her father passed. After James’ passing, her mother, Bernice, met her future husband, Early Woody Shinn, at Bernice’s Place, Cottage Ville, West Virginia. That is how Janet ended up in northwest Ohio.

She also is survived by two brothers, Keith Shinn and Carl (Helen) Shinn, both of McCutchenville and three sisters, JoAnn (Dan) Moll of Upper Sandusky, Donna (Randy) McKee of Hardy, Virginia, and Hope (Mike) Bogart of Upper Sandusky.

Janet graduated from Sycamore High School with the class of 1961. She was a homemaker and a member of Crawford United Methodist Church.
