Janet loved to bowl and started in a women’s league and couples league at Bel Aire and then Napa Bowl from 1970 to this last winter. Jerry and Jan could be found for years every Friday night laughing with friends and family with Jan, often the prankster and gambler, on who would have the best roll of the night. If you knew Jan, you also knew her common ask was, “hey, wanna join a bowling league?” In addition to bowling Jan loved to quilt and spent many hours sewing and participating in the Napa Valley Quilters.
As they both retired, Janet and Jerry traveled extensively throughout the US and Europe, but really enjoyed being home, more than travel if it involved spending time with their eight grandchildren, and more recently two great grandchildren.
Janet was a woman who successfully managed a career and family, and had a marvelous time doing it. She loved to cook for family and friends and enjoyed being social. She often was found as a leader and promoter of women in several non profit organizations throughout her life, but most of all she loved Jerry and in recent years had missed him terribly where she now joins him in peace doing what they loved together most, spending time with friends and family.
Janet is survived by her daughter, Lisa and husband Marvin Paul, of Napa, her son Matt Schiefferly and wife Shannon O’Shaughnessy of Napa, her grandchildren, Curtis Paul and his wife, Renee Reed and their sons Kayden and Braxton, Ryan Paul, Madison Paul, Jacqueline Paul, Natalie Schiefferly, Owen Schiefferly, Jack Ryan and Sean Ryan.
