PEORIA HEIGHTS - Janet Margaret Kimberlin, 77, of Peoria Heights passed away peacefully at 3:47 a.m. Sunday, August 10, 2014, at OSF St. Francis Medical Center surrounded by her family. Janet was born on April 7, 1937, in her family home on Belmont Place in Peoria Heights to Guy H. and Margaret (Pohlmeier) Hazard. She married Vernon E. Kimberlin on June 23, 1956, in Peoria Heights. He survives along with two children, Victoria (William) Gaynor and Joan (Edward) Sawyer both of Peoria; six grandchildren, Sarah, Grace and Anna Gaynor all of Chicago, and Laine, Joseph, and Samuel Thies and their father, Jeffrey, all of Peoria. She was preceded in death by two brothers and two sisters. Janet worked as a bookkeeper for Heights Bank for many years. She was a member of St. Thomas Catholic Church. Janet loved to knit, crochet, garden, and mow the lawn. She touched the lives of many friends and neighbors, and we ask all of you who knew her to celebrate her life with a 3 o'clock fine wine time! The family would like to thank the staff at OSF Medical ICU for the loving care given to Janet during her illness. A funeral Mass will be 10:30 a.m. Thursday, August 14, 2014, at her church, with Msgr. William A. Watson and Fr. Thomas Taylor officiating.
