Beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and friend, Janet J. Molder of Kansas City, KS was promoted home to glory early this morning, Saturday, April 4, 2020 at the age of 80 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. She left this present world peacefully in her sleep. Janet was raised in Leavenworth County by her parents, with an older brother and younger sister. She married Buddy Molder, whom her life revolved around, along with their four children. Janet was a hard working loyal office manager at Meyer Dairy for 27 years; after they closed she was office manager at Newcomers of OP for 5 years. She took an early retirement to care for and spend time with her cherished husband. They enjoyed cruises, vacations, lake house retreats, family and friends. Janet loved all children; and volunteered many hours at Providence Hospital. She accepted the Lord Jesus Christ in her late fifties; after which she and her husband were baptized in obedience and joined Open Door Baptist Church of KC,KS. She is preceded in death by her brother Ronnie Harrod; father Ben Harrod; mother Virginia Harrod; husband Buddy Molder. She leaves behind her daughter Deb Molder; son Jack Molder; stepdaughter Christine (Bob) Gripp; stepson Gene Molder; sister Ruth (Ed) Jauernig; sister in law Hazel Molder; sister in law Lou Lawson; brother in law Donnie (Sandy) Molder; grandchildren: Jeff (Erin) Swieton, Jeff (Alisha) Gripp, Chad (Jenny) Molder and 6 great grandchildren. She will be immediately buried next to her husband at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Kansas City, KS. A date for her Celebration of Life Memorial will be determined after Covid-19 homebound regulations end.
Ecc 7:1-3 A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth. It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart. Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.

To Janet’s family: We were saddened to read of your mother’s passing and extend our sincerest condolences to all of you. We knew Janet and Buddy from the Lake and through our cousins Grant and Beverly Cookson. Oh, those lake times were such fun. May you all have comfort in knowing she and Buddy are together again. They were each other’s world.
