Obituary for Janette Marie Alt

Peoria – Janette “Jan” Marie Alt, 78, passed away peacefully at home with family at her side on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.

Jan was born on December 26, 1942 in Youngstown, Ohio to John M Jaros and Mary J (Macabobby) Jaros. She married Larry E Alt on February 22, 1969 in Struthers, Ohio.
Surviving are her husband of 52 years, Larry; her mother, Mary; sons John (Jennie) Alt of Springfield, and Jason (Diana) Alt of Bellevue; grandsons Jacob (Alyssa) Alt of Roanoke, Isaac Alt and Ethan Alt, both of Springfield; and great granddaughter Scarlett.

She was preceded in death by her father, John.

After graduating from Struthers High School, Jan attended Saint Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing in Cleveland, Ohio and became a Registered Nurse. She began employment at Illinois Central College in January of 1987 as an instructor for Certified Nursing Assistants. She also served as a part-time tutor until 2007, then transitioned to adjunct faculty for ICC’s Health Careers Department. Over the course of her career, Jan grew to specialize in Alzheimer’s Disease and worked closely with the Illinois Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to promote awareness, education, and support for those affected by Alzheimer’s Disease.

Jan was a member of Saint Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Peoria Heights, IL, where she also served as a Parish Nurse. Her hobbies included arts & crafts, particularly cross-stitch and calligraphy. She was an avid reader and enjoyed any book or magazine that contained a recipe. Those who knew her best fondly remember her for the many personal touches she added to the Holidays and other special occasions.

There will be a visitation for Jan from 5pm – 7pm at Saint Thomas the Apostle Church on Monday, March 1, 2021. A funeral mass will be held at 10am on Tuesday March 2, 2021 at Saint Thomas with a half-hour visitation from 9:30am – 10am. Burial will be at Swan Lake Memory Gardens in Peoria.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Illinois Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, 8430 W Bryn Maur, Suite 800, Chicago, IL 60631, or at www.alz.org/illinois
