Janetta Lee Piper

April 11, 1939 — February 9, 2024

Battle Ground

  It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Janetta (Jan) L. Piper on

Friday, February 9, 2024. She will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed by

her husband Jim Piper and her two sisters Patricia Brazelton and Karen

Mannakee. She will also be deeply missed by her children: Karl Shaffer, Lynn

Brown, and Mike Shaffer, her six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and a

large extended family.

   Janetta enjoyed working as a telephone operator and then climbed the

Tupperware Pyramid and even blessed her family with a free car for her amazing


   She always had time to listen to anyone that needed her. She could be found

chatting to total strangers and was never uncomfortable walking into a function

where she knew no one. Jan would just take the opportunity to make a new

friend. Jan viewed her life as one opportunity after another full of possibilities and

many adventures.

   We are all left with dear memories. Jan knew how to enjoy and appreciate life as

she traveled, camped, and lived in at least seven different states and I doubt she

would tell you that there was a favorite. Janetta saw them all for the beautiful

places they were. She enjoyed cooking but loved to bake, and could knit, crochet,

and sew beautifully. Gardening and tending to her roses kept her busy, as well.

Janetta found time to cheer for grandkids at sports events, attended their band

concerts, choir performances, dance recitals for her nieces and nephews,

gymnastics events, and never turned down an opportunity for a game. She

enjoyed professional sports from football, baseball, or even hockey games and

her love for music kept those toes a-tapping and she never turned anyone down if

they cared to dance with her.

  Janetta had a love for her Lord Jesus Christ, and we are all comforted knowing she

is wrapped in His loving arms and is smiling upon all of us now.

Celebration of Life will take place  April 6, 2024, starting at 1 PM at Starting Grounds Church in Battle Ground, Washington.
