Janet M. Beroske

Janet Marie (LaVigne) Beroske, born October 7, 1941, entered Heaven on Saturday, January 30, 2021. She was reunited with her loving husband Ron and grandson David.

Born and raised in Toledo, OH, Janet grew up in a loving family with parents Paul and Amelia (Noble) LaVigne, and sister/best friend Mary Anne (Steinbaugh). Janet graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1959.

On November 14, 1959, she married the love of her life Ronald Francis Beroske.  It wasn’t long before they filled their small house with six children: Susan (John) Hallett, Kristin (Joseph) Hopkins, Stephen (Deborah) Beroske, Paul Beroske, Philip Beroske, and Lynette Beroske. 

Throughout their 61 years together, Janet often worked alongside Ron at Beroske Brothers Greenhouses. As empty nesters, they traveled the USA from Arizona to Alaska marveling at God’s great handiwork, labored alongside special friends on building projects at Native American Reservations, faithfully attended Delta Assembly of God, and lovingly cared for each other until Ron’s death on March 8, 2017.    

Janet was very talented artistically and was an amazing cake decorator.  She was also a woman of deep faith with a kind and loving heart who never met a stranger. During her 10-year stint owning a Christian bookstore, she touched many lives with her endless smile, ready embrace, and frequent dancing, singing and praying. 

Throughout her life, Janet was a generous, devoted and loving friend, mother, and grandmother. Her children, their spouses, 14 grandchildren: Amy Hallett, Anna Hallett (Crom Carey), Alyse (Jason) Brown and Adrienne (Preston) Lantz; David Hopkins†, Marie Hopkins and Laura (Matthew) Doyaga; Adam Beroske and Kyle Beroske; Haley Beroske (Jacob Crooks) and Hannah Beroske; Lucas Beroske (Marianna Evangelopoulou), Emma Beroske and Evan Beroske-Seyvet; and 5 great-grandchildren: Aariyah and Amya Hallett; Oliver, Marcus and Kingsley Brown; were blessed by her joyful spirit and optimistic outlook.  They could always count on Gramma giving them a big hug and kiss whenever they visited.  Janet is also survived by sister-in-law, Nancy Beroske, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins and a countless number of friends.   

Her family and friends miss her dearly, but we treasure the happy memories and find peace in knowing that she leaves behind a bit of herself in each of us.

Visitation and services at Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton will be private for the family.  Burial will follow at Dutch Ridge Cemetery.  A Celebration of her Life will be held later in the year.

The family is very grateful for the loving care Janet received at Swanton Valley Care Center.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Delta Assembly of God, 405 W. Main St., Delta, OH 43515 or Swanton Valley Care - Activities Fund, 401 W. Airport Hwy., Swanton, OH 43558.

Janet was my cutest, silliest cousin and sweetest, kindest person I have ever known. She never treated me like a little kid. She was always happy and willing to jump in and help with whatever was needed. The video memorial was beautiful. It brought back a lot of memories. I hadn't seen all the children together since the La Vigne family reunion at the Beroske's. If not for COVID, my husband and I would have paid our respects in person. My sincerest condolences to the immediate family.

Paul my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this difficult time. I didn't know you're mother but she was a very beautiful lady and person.
Love you Cathy Bailey

So sad to hear of her passing. She was an exceptional person who brought light and love to everyone she encountered. I was fortunate to reconnect with her from going to school with her in the 50's to going out to lunches in the 2000's. She was a joy to be with at all times.

So sorry for the loss of your mom, grandmother and sister. What a beautiful and cheerful person she was. I remember when she and Uncle Ron would stop by our condo after we moved back from Georgia. We enjoyed the time with them and now they will be together again. All our love and condolences to the family. Love, Cindy and Bob Ruch

Mary Anne,

Karen and I send our condolences on the loss of Janet. As soon as I saw her face, I knew she was your sister.

I am so sorry for your loss. Janet was a wonderful person and friend. She and I were very close back in the 80's and 90's.

In 1988 when she owned the Christian book store in Wauseon, she was so supportive of me. I went through a year of chemotherapy for cancer. Once a week I would have a treatment, make it to the store to rest and have her pray over me.

One time she purchased a piece of china I painted and sent it to their son Philip in France. Because of her, I had my one and only piece of artwork in a foreign country. We had lots of laughs over that.

Janet, Sharon Hull and I grew by leaps and bounds in our Christian walk. One of the best times of my life. Until we meet again, we have wonderful memories to sustain us.
