Janet Ruth Gerecz

The Lord’s heavenly Kingdom gained a precious angel on February 16, 2020, when Janet Ruth Francis Gerecz was called home, following a decline in her health. She passed away peacefully at the home of her dearest friend, who was like a daughter to her, Angela Crawford and her husband William Crawford, Sr.

Born in Marion, VA on June 30, 1945, to the late Walter E. Francis and Lute Catron Francis. Janet was preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband, Lieutenant Louis C. Gerecz, Jr., whom she loved dearly and her brother, Joseph E Francis.

Left to cherish her memory are her dearest friends, Angela (William) Crawford, Faith Crawford, Jasmine Crawford, William Crawford, Jr., Mark Roberts, Betty Greene; cousins, Anne Catron and Robert Francis; one niece and two nephews.

The Crawford family wishes to thank all the medical Staff members who cared for Mrs. Gerecz, especially her nurse, Sara Lee and her aide’s Latonya and Flossie. Baker-Foster Funeral Home is serving the family. Condolences may be registered at RWBakerFH.com.

Jan and I have shared many laughs together. She has transitioned from this earthly abode and I am looking forward to seeing her again in our heavenly home where we will laugh and sing praises to our Lord and Saviour!
