Obituary for Janet Kay Smouthers

Janet Kay Smouthers, age 78, of Ypsilanti, Michigan passed away on March 19, 2020.

Janet was born on July 11, 1941 to parents Alex and Dorothy (Chilman) Fedorinchik and raised in Taylor, Michigan with her four sisters: Judy, Joyce, Sandy, and Linda. Janet worked as a benefits representative for Ford Motor Company for many years before retiring and moving to Algonac, Michigan where she and her husband, William “Bill” Smouthers, enjoyed boating on Lake St. Clair. Later, she and Bill moved to Gulf Shores, Alabama to enjoy their retirement together walking on the beaches and visiting local establishments. After his passing in 2016, she moved back to Michigan to be near her son, Jeff Ward, and her grandchildren.

In her spare time, she enjoyed staying active and engaging in many social outings such as golf, boating trips, playing cards, and afternoons at the casino. Her favorite activity was spending time with her grandkids who she loved so much.

She was preceded in death by her husband Bill Smouthers and her grandson, Matthew Scott Ward.
Janet is survived by her son, Jeff (Cobie) Ward; her grandchildren, Kyle Bradley (Kelsey), Sarah Elizabeth, and Spencer Connor; her sisters, Judy Malvitz, Joyce Marbrey, Sandy Reich, and Linda Gagne; and many nieces and nephews.

Private cremation services have taken place. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
