Janet Lynn Teel, 71, Pattonsburg, MO passed away Sunday, February 18, 2024, at a Stanberry, MO nursing home.

She was born on October 5, 1952, in Bethany, MO the fourth and youngest child of Donald Marion and Gwynetha (Howard) Teel. She was the only child born in a hospital out of all her siblings. She grew up on the family farm where she would call home for 68 years. She was baptized in the Pattonsburg Baptist Church on September 28, 1975. She graduated from Pattonsburg High School on May 13, 1970 and continued to live with her mother and helped on the family farm after losing her father in 1973. As a young adult she worked at the local cap factory before starting her career in healthcare. Janet worked as a CNA and CMT for 20 years in Albany and Bethany, MO. She loved her nieces and nephews if they were behaving; there were lots of them to keep her busy.

In her spare time, she loved reading romance novels and watching soap operas with her mother. One of her favorite albums was Eddie Rabbit and she truly enjoyed taking care of the cats and kittens on the farm.
