Janet Marie Mitchell

August 4, 1941 — September 5, 2022

Rio Rancho


Janet Marie Mitchell was born to Yvonne and Armand Gladu on August 4th, 1941. She passed away peacefully on September 6th, 2022. Janet is preceded in death by her daughter Barbara Bower. She is survived by her husband, William G. Mitchell and children David (Leilani) Marchand, Deborah (James) Marchand, Mark (Cheryl) Mitchell, John (Susan)Marchand, Jane (Doug) Ford, and David (Amanda) Mitchell. She is also survived by grandchildren, Devin Bower, Joseph Marchand, Megan Jaw, Steven Walston, Allison Minteer, Anna Rapp, James Ford, Thomas Marchand, Rachel Marchand, Lydia Mitchell, John Mitchell and Luke Mitchell. The effects of spending time with her 13 great grandchildren were evident as Janet’s aging spirit became young again.  


As a young child, Janet would spend time behind her house in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, making mud pies among the spring flowers. These activities continued in her adult life as she loved to garden and grow her own vegetables. Janet was also an accomplished business woman owning several businesses which allowed a well-deserved retirement. Her biggest accomplishment was the success of her blended family with her one and only William. Together with their now seven children, they created rich memories and bonds that built a strong foundation of love and togetherness. She took that love to a higher level when she gifted each of her children with research about their family and ancestors; a true legacy of love. These efforts culminated into the writing of a manuscript which is one of her prized possessions.
