Janet K. Highfill


Janet K Highfill, affectionately known as Grandma J, went home to the Lord on November 3, 2022

A Catholic Mass and burial will take place in Anthony KS at a later date.

Janet was a loving mother to 4, a grandmother to 11, and a great grandmother to 1, with 2 more on the way.

It’s hard to sum up a life in a few sentences… Janet had an infectious laugh and a giving heart. She enjoyed canning and could be found stock piling her jellies under the bed to be given to grandchildren and visitors alike. On a sunny day you could find her in the yard gardening. She often bought more bulbs than could be planted. She had a soft heart for animals and loved her dog, Lulu.

She belonged to the third order of our Lady of Mount Carmel, and dedicated her life to prayer. She made beautiful rosaries that she gladly shared.

Later in life she was reunited with her high school classmate and crush., Robert “Bobby” Highfill. They married and enjoyed a life together until his death 17 months earlier.

Janet is survived by her 4 children, affectionately known as the 4m’s Monica Peppler (Travis) of Niceville, FL, Mike LaPlant (Barbara) of Lago Vista, TX, Mark LaPlant (Nancy) of Canyon Country, CA and Melissa LaPlant (Steve) of Grove City, PA. Sisters, Glenda Hale (Ron), Georgia Ricker (Phil) as well as her grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Janet is proceeded in death by her loving husband, Bob, her parents George and Thelma Durant and her brother Jack Durant.

We would like to thank Presbyterian Manor’s nurses and staff for their love and support to our mother.

Rindt-Erdman Funeral Home and Crematory is in charge of the arrangements. On line condolences may be made at www.rindt-erdman.com
