Janet Kay Kissling

<p>KISSLING, Janet Kay - Age 57, of Fenton, left this earth to spend eternity with Jesus on July 31, 2020, at her home surrounded by the family she loved and served selflessly all her life. A private burial will take place at Fisher Hill Cemetery in Algansee Twp. Memorial Services will be announced at a later date - see website (celebratewithjanet.com). Arrangements provided by Sharp Funeral Homes, 1000 Silver Lake Rd., Fenton.</p> <p>Janet was born on December 22, 1962, in Fayette, Ohio, to Claire and Doris Leininger. She and Norm Kissling were united in marriage on June 18, 1983, in Lansing, Michigan. Norm and Janet poured their lives into raising their nine children, with Janet homeschooling them, teaching them a life of service, and training up each one in the love of Jesus Christ. She became a grandmother of fifteen with grace and beauty, welcoming each one of them into her life. Janet enjoyed gathering with family, working in her vegetable garden and flower beds, and walking the shorelines of the Great Lakes to watch sunsets and collect rocks. Her deepest desire was that her family and everyone she knew and loved would come to know Jesus, and Janet lived out that purpose until God called her home. She knew only those things she did for Christ would last, and her life&rsquo;s work was a perfect reflection of her values.</p> <p>Janet is survived by her loving husband Norm; nine children, Micah (Andrea), Josiah (Erin), Nathan (Hannah L.), Sarah, Hannah J., Miriam, Joel (Gloria), Seth and Caleb; 15 grandchildren, Gilbert, Megan, Britton, Lindsey, Selena, Zoeporah, Joshua, Emma, Heidi, Cora, William, Annie, Elizabeth, Kirsten, Drew, and one on the way; her mother, Doris; 3 brothers and 3 sisters, Gary (Bonnie) Leininger, Dean (Donna) Leininger, Paula (Keith) Preston, Curtis (Rhonda) Leininger, Lois (Mark) Pullano and Gloria Leininger; and many loved nieces and nephews.</p> <p>Janet was preceded in death by her father, Claire. Janet Kissling is a child of God, a loving servant, and she lived her life with eternity always in mind. She generously shared the love of Jesus with each person she touched. Though we wish she was still here with us, she finished her race well. Tributes may be shared at www.sharpfuneralhomes.com.</p>
