Obituary

Janet Ilene Westfahl, 82 of Hopkins, Michigan, passed away Friday, July 26, 2019 at Railside Assisted Living in Byron Center, Michigan with her friend, Hannah Hensel present. Born January 1, 1937 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Janet was the daughter of the late Clarence and Nellie (Schribner) Solomon and the wife of the late William Carl Westfahl, Jr. She was a member of St. Therese Catholic Church in Wayland and dedicated to her Lord. Janet had a kind and giving heart and she enjoyed taking care of her family, especially doting on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her children, Sharilyn Westfahl, Jeff McLochlin, Jesse McLochlin, Jancy McLochlin and Jerry McLochlin; her sisters, Judith Solomon Padilla, Jeanette Schwartz and Beverly Merrit; many grandchildren and several great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; and her special friends, Hannah Hensel, Mark Forbes and Tricia Forbes. Along with her parents and her husband, she was preceded in death by her sons, James McLochlin and David Westfahl; her grandson, Michael Westfahl; her great-granddaughter, Mykayla Westfahl; her brother, Kenneth Solomon; and her sisters, Imogene Mooney and Mary Lou Schwartz.

Janet will be missed for her quick wit and sense of humor as well as her heart of gold. Her life was such a blessing to many of the people who remained in it. She was loved beyond words and she will be missed beyond measure. Heaven gained a beautiful angel.

Friends may meet with her family at the Gorden Funeral Residence, Hopkins Chapel, on Thursday, August 1, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, where the rosary will be recited at 7:00 PM. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Therese Catholic Church in Wayland on Friday, August 2, 2019 at 11:00 AM. Memorial donations may be made in Janet’s name to St. Therese Catholic Church or Kindred Hospice. Burial will take place at Lakeview Cemetery, Hopkins, Michigan.
