Obituary for Janet Lee Truax

Janet Lee Truax, 80, a resident of St. Paul's and formerly of 275 East Ave., Greenville, passed away peacefully, Friday night, August 2, 2019 at UPMC Hamot in Erie, with her daughters by her side.

She was born in Greenville, on November 6, 1938 to the late Paul and Martha (Christy) Sowash.

Janet worked many years as a nursing aide, which prompted her to open her own uniform shop in Greenville, "Jan's Uniform Shop", which specialized in petite sizes. Later, she enjoyed running her business, "J&D Antiques", alongside her late husband, David. After retirement, they continued to work side by side as sextons at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Greenville. She took great pride in her service to the church, but her greatest pleasure in life was her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

She was married to David P. Truax on December 20, 1986 and he preceded her in death on July 26, 2002.

Janet is survived by: two daughters, Jodie Lawman and her husband, Jeffery, of Bradenton, FL, and Paula Banco and her husband, Joseph, of Mercer; two step sons, Erik Truax and his wife, Cathy, of Buford, GA, and David Truax, II of Buford, GA; eight grandchildren, Brittaney Yandell, Colin and Kaylee Banco, Jared and Tyler Costello, Seth, Avery, and Sierra Truax; three great grandchildren, Bryson Asbury, Vinnie Caroniti, and Leah Banco.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by: a son, Neil Edward Burt-Eckstrom; a daughter, Sherry Lynn (Burt) Costello;, and two brothers, Peter L. Sowash, and Paul H. Sowash, III.
