Janet married Walter S. Poff on September 12, 1953 in Roanoke VA. Janet, known lovingly as Memaw, enjoyed having fun. She enjoyed her life and her family. She liked going to Winstar where she enjoyed all it had to offer and had lots of fun. Janet also collected dolls and elephants, and her collections were only a few of the things that brought her joy. Janet and Walter were happily married for 67 years and they had two sons, Tim and Gary, and daughter, Becky. This union expanded into four generations, as she became known as Memaw to her family and to whoever else she could. Memaw liked taking care of others, most of who would become family to her. She loved her family immensely, and Memaw will be missed greatly by those who loved her. She will leave her family and friends with lasting memories, and a deep sense of knowing they were well loved.
