Janet B. Bloom, 89 of Kenton passed away on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at Vancrest of Ada. She was born on Feb. 1, 1931 to the late Leobold "Pat" and Edna (Koch) Laubis. She married William A. "Bill" Bloom on Nov. 29, 1952 and he preceded her in death on Sept. 6, 2007. She is survived by a son, W. Jeff (Michelle) Bloom; two daughters, W. Jennie (Charles) Byers, Jr. and W. Jackie (Gary) McNutt; eight grandchildren, Nancy (Mike) Harris, Amy (Mike) McFarlin, Chuck (Megan) Byers, AJ (Tera)McNutt, Georgianne (Nick) Downing, Mallory (Ben) McPheron, Mason Bloom and Morgan (Travis) Downing; and 16 great-grandchildren. She was also preceded in death by brothers, Wilbur, Gene and Allen "Red" Laubis. Janet was a retired nurse and held memberships in the DAR and Greenwood Grange. She was a proud supporter of the Kenton Athletic Boosters, Hardin Co. Historical Society and the Hardin Co. Humane Society and was a former 4H Leader. Janet was an energetic, independent and compassionate woman who enjoyed anything Hardin County or Kenton and especially loved events that included her grandchildren. She was a follower of those activities and could be seen in the audience or cheering in the stands well into her late 80s. She loved to play games, trivia and discussing politics and watching late night talk shows, attending craft shows and cherished playing cards with her dear friends, family and brother Red. One of her greatest passions was playing Bingo and games of chance in which she was often very lucky. The excitement on her face when she won will always be a great memory for the family. They are very thankful to have had so many years of laughter and love and would like to extend a special thanks to the staff of Vancrest of Ada for their care. A private family service in her memory will be held and she will be laid to rest along side of her husband at Grove Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Bloom Family Scholarship in care of Kenton Schools. Online condolences can be shared by visiting stoutcrates.com.
