Janet is survived by her husband; Mike, her children; Jesse, Megan, and Brendan, and her siblings; Nancy, Jeff, and Jay. She is predeceased by her dad, Clete Wiest and her mom, Rose  Wiest.


Janet was born on May 28, 1961 in Long Beach, California to Clete and Rose Wiest.  In 1979, Janet gave birth to her eldest son, Jesse, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

They then moved to Colorado and then to Salt Lake City, Utah where she had her daughter Megan in 1998.


Hardworking and determined, she worked for a variety of major corporations including

PhoneMate, Whirlpool, and Bard Access Systems. After her diagnosis of Colon Cancer in 2014, Janet fought strongly and bravely to prolong her life as long as she could. However, after being connected with Compassion and Choices, a non-profit that aims to provide extended choices for those who are terminally ill, she advocated to government officials at the Utah State capitol in 2016 in an attempt to pass the End of Life Options Act. 


Janet was a loving mother, wife, and friend with a bright spirit that influenced everyone around her. Her love of other people and her ability to give to others was unparalleled on this planet. She was a spiritual person and loved talking to others about her ideas and enjoyed collecting crystals. She was a gifted artist, enjoyed painting, and loved spending time outside in nature. She was an animal lover and enjoyed her chickens, and her dogs; Quincy, Gracie, Indi, and Juneau. 


Janet celebrated her life at every turn and while her body has left this world, her bright spirit still remains. There will be 2 memorial services held.
