Janet L. Nicholson, 79, of Frederick, MD, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on June 12, 2019, at Frederick Memorial Hospital.

Born on June 11, 1940, in Roaring Springs, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of the late Horace and Mary Smith. Janet, forever 79, had a fondness for writing short stories and poems. She enjoyed singing and the occasional hand of rummy. Her greatest passion in life was the love and presence of her large and ever-growing family.

She was preceded in death by her late husband, John Sr.; brother, Robert Snyder; sister, Judy Rayburn; daughter, Lisa; sons, Tim and John Jr.; grandchildren, Charlie, Adam and Teia; and great-grandchild, Harmony. She is survived by brothers, Virgil and Donnie Smith; and sister, Wanda Back. She is also survived by her four children, Bonnie Chamberlain, Dana Lane and fiance Danny Burgess, Joseph and wife Tami, Tina and husband Robert O’Donnell; and a granddaughter, Heidi and husband Jonathan Walker. Her greatest pride was her 25 grandchildren, and 39 great-grandchildren. WOW!
