Janet Coolidge passed peacefully from this world on November 21st, 2020, surrounded by her family and close friends.

She was born in Granville, NY on November 12th, 1938, to Carson & Lulu (Rogers) Combs.

Jan last attended high school at Keene Central School in 1954. In the summer of that year, she met the love of her life, Bill Coolidge, at a square dance in Wilmington, and the rest, as they say, is history. They were married in January of 1955 and had 3 sons: Bill the 3rd, Calvin and Michael.

Besides being a housewife and loving mother, Janet also worked at various businesses around the area, including Ward Lumber Company, the Hungry Trout, & Morrison's Motor Court, before finding her true calling at AuSable Valley Central School, where she worked for 27 years, first as a study hall monitor, and then as In-school Suspension supervisor.

Additionally, she coached cheerleading for several years at AVCS. Janet's whole life revolved around helping others, whether it was her family, friends, kids at AuSable Valley, or complete strangers. Her kindness and good heartedness knew no bounds.

She attended Whiteface Community Methodist Church in Wilmington for approximately 40 years, and more recently had become an active member of the Calvary Baptist Church congregation.

Jan enjoyed visiting with family and friends, square dancing, sewing, baking, bluegrass music, & doting on all her cats, which most recently were Anna and Emma.

She is survived by her sister, Bonnie Combs of Jay, and her 3 sons and their families: William, of Redford, Calvin & Pat of Jay, and Mike & Marcie, of Golden, CO. She is also survived by her four grand-children: William the 4th, Benjamin, Tatum & Owen, and her 2 great-grandkids: Lilly & Leah.

Zaumetzer Funeral Home in Au Sable Forks has been entrusted with the arrangements, and Calling Hours will be held there from 3:00 to 5:00 pm on Sunday, December 6th, with a Memorial Service taking place at Calvary Baptist Church in Wilmington at 11:00 am on Monday, December 7th, 2020.

In lieu of flowers, Please make donations to High Peaks Hospice, Fitzpatrick Cancer Center, or North Country SPCA.

A very Special thanks to her Hospice nurses, Colette and Caleigh, to her dear friend Barbara Nelson, and to her angelic friend and care-giver, Jane Reed. We can never Thank You enough...

Janet was a dear friend with a huge heart. She had mad baking and cooking skills - her home was a wonderfully warm and cozy place to visit - I shall miss our chats and her snail mail letters ... heaven has gained a beautiful soul and she is most certainly back to enjoying a little blue grass with Bill 😊💜 - lots of love from Valerie

My sympathies to Janet's family. I remember seeing her every day in the cafeteria. She always said hi. She was good friends with my parents, as dad was the Methodist minister in Wilmington for 4yrs. My prayers for her family and friends...

I knew Janet from my days at Au Sable Valley as a permanent substitute in the late 1970's. She was such a kind, thoughtful person who was always willing to listen and offer gentle guidance. May she be singing with the angels in the loving arms of God. Rest in peace Janet.
