Janet C. Stone passed away peacefully on her 93rd birthday at her p l a c e o f residence in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Janet was born June 1 0 , 1920, in New Rochelle, N.Y., and grew up in the house at 9 Jackson St., the source of many wonderful tales of those times which she loved to recount.

She was married 63 years to Thomas M. “Bud” Stone, with whom she has now been reunited.

While residing in Hudson, Ohio, Janet worked in the administration office at Western Reserve Academy, retiring from her position as secretary to the headmaster in 1985.

Upon retirement, Janet and Bud moved to North Carolina, where they had many good friends and were active in the Tryon Congregational Church.

Her sharp but disarming wit will be missed. Janet was the longest-lived of her siblings, Ruth Skinner of Danville, Vt., Rev. John Coleman of Bethesda, Md. and Carol Buchanan of Westport, N.Y.

She is survived by her sons, Philip of Pleasanton, Calif., Donald of Garland, Texas; daughter, Virginia Corsini (John) of Cincinnati, Ohio; and son, Thomas of Flagstaff, Ariz.; six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013, at the Congregational Church in Tryon, N.C. Donations may be made in her honor to: Heartland Hospice, 3800 Red Bank Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45227, 513-831-5800.
