Janet R. Coughenour, of Warsaw, passed away on Sunday, January 15, 2023 at the age of 84. Born on August 17, 1938, Janet was the daughter of Gerald and Bessie (Barnes) Bowman.

She worked a number of different jobs during her professional career which included a career as a color formulation chemist at various powder coating companies, a cashier at a Warsaw Lassus Gas Station, and as an employee at Lowe’s. Janet enjoyed gambling at the casinos when she lived in Las Vegas, fishing off the pier at Barbee Lake, and watching the hummingbirds in her backyard.
