Janet Lyn Ballash (née Collins) went home to God peacefully on Thursday, June 25, 2020 surrounded by loved ones. Janet was born on November 30, 1958 in Euclid, OH to Orrin and Pearl (née Wortman) Collins. She spent most of her adult life as a stay at home mother who always put her family before herself. Janet had the biggest heart and was always there for the one’s she loved. Janet saw the potential in things others viewed as junk and was a scrapper at heart. She had a great love and appreciation for nature and especially loved the water. She enjoyed feeding and watching the birds as well as traveling and spending time with friends. Janet loved to spend time with her children and grandchildren. She was a hardworking, kind hearted, spunky, funny, loving woman. Janet loved her children and her grandchildren more than anything.

She is proceeded in death by her father, Orrin, her mother, Pearl, her brothers, Orrin III and Bart, and her sister, Pennie Hurley. Janet is survived by her daughter, Sacha (Gary) Cooper, her son, Mathew Ballash, her granddaughter, Alannah Cooper, her grandson, Carson Ballash, her brothers, Leslie, Robert and Rex Collins, and her sister, Cindy Sears.

Janet’s wishes were to be cremated and there will be a celebration of her life at later date to be announced.
