Obituary for Janet Fay Rosson

Janet Fay Rosson, of Rolla, passed away Sunday, August 5, 2018 at the age of 77.
She was born in St. Clair, MO on November 10, 1940 to the late Floyd Landwehr and Alean (Cowan) Landwehr. Janet was married to Ray Rosson, who preceded her in death.
Janet graduated from St. Clair High School and then attended The University of Columbia where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Education. She taught the 4th and then 2nd grade for many years before receiving her Masters in Counseling from Southeast Missouri State in Cape Girardeau, MO. She then became the Elementary Counselor at the St. Clair Elementary School.
Coming from a musical family, she played the piano for church, sang in the choir, and sang solos wherever she attended. Janet was faithful to both Sunday School and Church until her health prohibited her from going.
After teaching, Janet and Ray moved to St. Louis where Janet had a job with a travel agency. She and Ray were able to travel throughout the United States as well as abroad.
Janet had a love for dogs. She and her late husband, Ray, had many dogs. In the last few years while living in St. Louis, Janet became a “foster mom” for dogs who had no home. She rescued many different kinds.
Her winning smile and dry sense of humor gained her many close friends. She didn’t know a stranger and was kind and helpful to family and friends. We will miss her greatly.
In addition to her parents and husband, Janet was preceded in death by one nephew, Sam Tummons, and one brother-in-law, Bob Schuler.
She will be greatly missed by her surviving family which includes two sisters, Maxine Schuler of Swayzee, IN and Jane Tummons and husband Mike, of Rolla; three brothers, Jerry Landwehr and wife Shirley, of Japan, MO, DeWayne Landwehr and wife Gail of Anderson, IN, and David Landwehr and wife Chris of Nixa, MO; numerous nieces and nephews; other extended family members and dear friends.
A memorial service celebrating the life of Janet Rosson will be held at 11 am Saturday, August 25, 2018 at the Rolla Church of the Nazarene, 1901 East Tenth Street. The family will receive friends prior to the service beginning at 10 am.
Memorial contributions are suggested to the Rolla Animal Shelter.
