Shone, Janet Louise (Pearson)

August 31, 1943 - February 26, 2020

Janet Louise Shone, age 76, passed away peacefully at her home into the loving arms of her Lord on Wednesday, February 26, 2020.   Her health had been in decline over the past couple of years, but her will to live was so strong.  She was very active–living her life to the fullest–until the very end.  Janet was a loving grandmother (nicknamed JG), mother, mother-in-law, and a friend to all those whose lives she touched.  Janet exemplified the old saying, “Work Hard, Play Hard” and also, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”  She was always the life of the party and made an impression on everybody she met.   We loved her so much, and she will be missed.

Janet was born on August 31st, 1943 in McMinnville, OR to Kenneth and Arlene Pearson.  She attended Grants Pass High School where she was a Majorette and the best baton twirler that they had ever seen (in her opinion).  She met her future husband, Keith Shone, there, and graduated HS in 1961.  She was married to Keith in 1963 while attending the University of Oregon.  They eventually moved to Seattle, WA where her two daughters were born, Jennifer and Erin.  Keith worked for the federal government and in the oil business and they moved quite a bit, living in Vienna, VA; Brea, CA; and Denver, CO, before finally settling down in Plano, TX in 1986.

Shortly after moving to Texas, Janet began her career in real estate where she became a multi-million-dollar producer for Henry S. Miller and Ebby Halliday.  She became a world traveler visiting exotic places all over the globe.  One of the most important things to Janet was family, and she would always bring at least one of her daughters with her so they could experience the world’s delights together.  One of her favorite sayings was “You were my baby long ago, and you still are if I say so.”

Janet is preceded in death by her mother, Arlene Pearson, father, Ken Pearson, and brothers Tom and Mike Pearson.  She is survived by her children, Jennifer King and her husband, Mike (Lucas, TX); Erin Morales and her husband, Rob (Austin, TX).  She also has five beautiful grandchildren: Hayden, Avery, Lola, Charlie Mae and Harper.  She loved spending time with her grandkids and considered them her life’s greatest treasure.

A memorial service will be held on Thursday, March 12th at 10:30 am at St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 5801 W. Plano Parkway, Plano, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests you consider a donation be made in her honor to the K.I.D.S IQ Project or an organization of the donors choice.

Janet always had a way of making you feel like you were the most talented and special person in the room. We have been friends for 40 years and although our life journeys took us to different states, we always stayed in touch and enjoyed reminiscing over so many wonderful memories we shared through the years. Her beautiful daughters, Jennifer and Erin, will continue to be a reflection of all the wonderful things Janet was to all who were blessed to know her. I count myself among that group and will be forever grateful for the joy and love she brought into my life. Thank you, my dear friend. You will be so missed by so many.

The sight of Janet always brought a smile to my face. My greatest compliment to a person is that they were “fun” and Janet was fun and you just loved being around her. I will miss her. My love to her daughters that she so cherished.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
