Janet Leigh Berry, aged 57, passed away peacefully on September 25, 2021 at Watauga Medical Center in Boone, North Carolina. Janet was born on November 3, 1963 in Blowing Rock, NC to James and Judy Berry.
Janet was a lifelong resident of Watauga County. She attended Watauga High School and graduated from Wilkes Community College and Caldwell Community College. She worked at Blowing Rock hospital for several years and enjoyed taking care of the elderly patients.
Janet was a kind woman – holding fast to her beliefs, defending those she loved, and always seeking to help anyone that was in need, she would give away items she needed just to help someone else.
Janet was of the Baptist faith and strongly believed and rejoiced in getting to meet the Lord and be reunited with loved ones that had passed before her. She loved having family and friends around and made friends wherever she went.
Janet is survived by her daughter, Stacia Hatley, her son, Joseph Strickland, grandson, Randy Steven Hatley, her mother, Judy Berry, sisters Robin Triplett and husband Jim, Amy Yates and husband Jamey, brothers Douglas Berry and wife Billana and Jeffery Berry and wife Beth and her very loved dog, Daisy. In addition, she had many nieces, nephews, and her best friend Norma Kyte.
Janet was predeceased in death by her father, James Berry, infant sister, Anita Jean Berry and son, Steven Hatley.
A private, family graveside service will be held at the Middle Fork Baptist Church Cemetery.
