Janet Logan Farrell

Published 11:02 am Wednesday, May 2, 2012

The heavens have opened and taken our sweet Janet Logan Farrell home. Janet battled cancer for the last six months and passed on May 1, 2012, in Vicksburg. She was 66.

She devoted herself to God, family and friends. She was a master at most anything she touched. A gardener and florist, she enjoyed arts and crafts, painting, fishing and breeding and training horses. She was an animal rights activist and mothered many animals back to health and shared her home with them.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Prather, Meadville, and Mr. Bill Logan, Greenville.
