Janet Michelle Smith, 64, passed away on May 17, 2022. She was born on February 19, 1958, to Charles and Barbara Kirtley in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Janet was a pure joy to be around. She enjoyed crocheting and fishing; she was so talented and passionate about her hobbies that she even began her own program classes. Her family was her world; she was the glue of the family. When Janet spoke, everyone listened; she was so wise, caring, and compassionate. She will be missed greatly.

Janet was preceded in death by her parents Charles and Barbara Kirtley; daughter Megan Smith; brother Michael Kirtley, John Carlton, Gary Carlton; sisters Mary Jane Kirtley, Anne Kirtley, and Elizabeth Kirtley.

Janet is survived by her children Danyelle (Mike) Schmits and Darryl Smith (Jessica); grandchildren Matthew Smith (Rose), Dalton Schmits, Timothy Schmits, Heaven Casteel, Aiden Casteel, Viktor Casteel, Savannah Casteel; great-grandsons Zacharyah Smith, Liam Smith; sisters Gloria Kirtley (David), Karin Wargel (Mark); brother Timothy Kirtley; nieces and nephews Cathy Goad (Anthony), Brandi Cooper (Anthony), Richard Kirtley (Karla), Heather Wargel, and Mark; grand-nieces and grand-nephews Madison Ricketts, Scott Ricketts Jr., Leland Ricketts, Jayce Goad, Makiya Cooper, Malilah Cooper; and many friends.

Visitation will be from 12pm until the time of service at 1pm on Friday, May 20, 2022, at Sunset Funeral Home with a burial to directly follow at Sunset Memorial Park.
