Obituary for Janet E Slagle

Janet E. Slagle, age 76 of Warren for almost 50 years, passed away Thursday, March 14, 2019 at Beaumont Hospital in Troy. She was born October 15, 1942 in Detroit to John “Jack” and Emeline Delong.

Janet grew up in Berkley and married the love of her life, Richard, on January 31, 1959 at Our Lady of La Salette Catholic Church in Berkley. Together they raised their six children and created numerous memories. Janet enjoyed spending time with family and planning family gatherings. She enjoyed playing board games, cards, and BINGO with her kids. She was an excellent cook and baker, always happy to cook for family and friends. She enjoyed going to concerts and antiquing. She also loved taking long drives in the car.

After the passing of her husband, Janet developed a strong sense of independence. She obtained her driver’s license and bought a new house. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She loved her family and she will be missed dearly.

She is survived by her daughters, Margaret (Jack) Thompson, Mary Kathryn Doebler, Karen McGuffie, Patti (Bob) Gillespie, and Janet (Brad) VanBecelaere; daughter-in-law, Alta Slagle; siblings, Emeline Hildbold, Tim (Sally) Delong, and Pat (Bobbi) Delong; grandchildren, Chris (Missy) Thompson, Melissa Thompson, Kevin (Kate) McGuffie, Rick (Kaitlin) McGuffie, Tony Slagle, Bobby Gillespie, and Maria Slagle; and great grandchildren, Jaiden, Finnegan, and Charlotte. Greeting her in heaven are her husband of 50 years, Richard; parents, Jack and Emeline; son, Tony; and son-in-law, Danny Doebler.
