  1. Janet Coons was a Fulton treasure just because she was such a gentle, sweet soul, not to mention an extremely talented artist. I will always treasure the special tour she gave me of the gallery of her paintings located in her home. Am so sad she’s gone.

  2. So sorry for your loss. My wife Joyce and Janet go back many years–way back to Armstrong. I told Joyce , who has severe health problems, about Janets passing, and she was very lucid in her memories of her. We have two of Janets paintings in our Florida home. It will be difficult for you, but you have the strength to get through. Our thoughts and love to you. Don Johnson
