Obituary of Janet L. Zahlhas

Janet was known by her friends and family as a selfless and giving woman with a strong stubborn steak. Family was everything to her. She met her husband, Jack, in early 1964 on Harlem Road in West Seneca. Although Jack’s family never thought they would see him settle down, Janet was just the woman to turn him into a family man. The couple was married just a few short months after, on October 24th, and welcomed a son, Thomas, into the world. Thomas went on to marry his wife, Kathy, and blessed Janet and Jack with two grandkids. Jennifer and Daniel, who lovingly called Janet “Mema,” were the center of Janet’s universe. She spent as much time as she could with them and attended all their soccer games, bowling matches, and any other school functions they had going on. In her down time, Janet enjoyed relaxing while watching The Andy Griffith Show or listening to some good 50s music. One of her favorite hobbies was cooking. Janet believed cooking was an expression of love, and she loved her family a lot! Thomas’ favorite dish of Janet’s was her Macaroni and Cheese. The grandkids, however, preferred her Chocolate Chip cake. Anything Janet made was made with all the love and devotion of the Wife, Mother, and Grandmother, that Janet poured her soul into being. Zahlhas, Janet of West Seneca, NY on August 7, 2020. Beloved wife of John “Jack” Zahlhas; Devoted mother of Thomas (Kathy) Zahlhas; Loving Mema of Jennifer and Daniel; also survived by extended family and friends.
