Our sweet wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend, Janet Marlor Boren passed peacefully at home on Dec 30th, 2020 surrounded by her family, reuniting with her parents, and children, Robert and Ashlee.
She was born April 3, 1939, in Murray UT to Robert and Fern Marlor. At age 5, she contracted Polio spending 6 months hospitalized and isolated from friends and family. The strength and perseverance developed by battling this disease were seen throughout her life. To help with the lasting effects of Polio, Janet learned to play the cello and piano. She attended Jordan High School and later Brigham Young University.
Janet met her true love Ronald L Boren and was married on September 17th, 1962 in the Logan Temple. Janet and Ron raised a loving family of 5 children (Robert, Heather, Ashlee, Brady, Jamie). She was a loving and dedicated mother and wife who would do anything for her family. She attended hundreds of soccer games and wrestling matches without missing a single game.
Janet’s generosity and kindness were known to all around her. Never wanting the spotlight or praise, she tirelessly worked behind the scenes serving all around her. Her charity and kindness exemplified Christ. Janet was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and held many callings. Her true love was the primary children and served many decades as a teacher. As their primary teacher, many of her kids would stop by to ”play” while grown children continually share the impact and memories that Janet made in their lives.
If you were lucky enough to have the pleasure of meeting Janet, you always left uplifted, cared for, and loved.
Proceeded in death by her parents, son, Robert, and daughter, Ashlee. She is survived by her husband Ron, siblings, Kent (Sharon), Lynn (Pat), Rosemary (Jack) Gagnon, children Heather (Jeff), Brady (Rae), Jamie (Scott), and 8 grandchildren.
