With profound sadness we announce the passing of Janet Sue Coen (Andrews), our loving and devoted mother and friend to all whose lives she touched, on May 2, 2019. She left us while sleeping peacefully at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St.Louis. She was in her 67th year of life.
Janet will be fondly remembered by family and friends as an avid reader, a distinguished seamstress and quilter, author, world traveler, amateur archeologist, business manager, proud patriot and loving mother. She enjoyed traveling with her husband and family on her famous “Great Adventures”.
