Janet Toms

May 25, 1953 — July 27, 2022

Janet L. Toms, age 69, Pleasanton, Kansas passed away Wednesday, July 27, 2022.  She was born on May 25, 1953 in Paola, Kansas to Kenneth and Fontella Butler Stainbrook.  She graduated from Prairie View High School and later earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Pittsburg State University.  Janet was united in marriage to her high school sweetheart, Terry Toms on July 3, 1976.  Her family was her whole world and she loved them well.  She had a special love for each of her grandchildren and she made sure they knew how much she cared.  She spent many hours sitting in bleachers watching sporting events, attending art and music shows, and helping them with projects or homework.  Her grandkids always looked forward to sleepovers because she would spoil them with fun on the farm and plenty of sweets.  Janet had a difficult time sitting still, but she would spend hours crocheting, making blankets for each of her kids and grandkids.  Janet was an educator for 20 years where she taught her students a love for reading.  She taught life lessons from books about empathy, kindness, and resiliency.  She loved each of her students and would have done anything for them. She taught her students the importance of giving back and was instrumental in forming the Angel Tree Program.  Janet is survived by her husband, Terry, two sons, Justin Toms(Theresa), and Jason Toms(Ashley), a daughter, Tara McGregor, two sisters, JoAnn Stainbrook and Kendra Patterson, and nine grandchildren, Aiyana, Jayce, Teyah, Aedin, Azaiah, Jaylin, Jaxson, Jazzmyne, and Juliana.
