Janet penned her own eulogy, which read in part, "About two months ago, I was diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia. A very rare blood disorder where your bone marrow stops producing sufficient blood.
This meant I was really weak and tired all the time. It is the little bags of life (blood transfusions) that kept me going. These little bags literally bought me more time."
She added, "I had a fun and full social life and really enjoyed spending time with my friends. I had a close-knit circle with whom we shared many memories together from my Rusinga high school friends group which was dubbed "Ngware MCs", as a tribute to the neighbouring area to my Braeside friends with who we have shared a lot of memories, travel, and life experiences.
I was blessed to have made really close friends at work too."
