Janet Stouck Rankin, age 84, passed away on Monday, December 14, 2020 at her home in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
She was born July 1, 1936 to the late Almeta and Lawrence Rankin in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, where she resided until attending college.
Janet earned a Bachelor of Arts, Journalism degree from Pennsylvania State University; Associate of Science, Nursing degree from Shepherd College; and a Master of Arts, Registered Nursing degree from Rider University.
Janet was intelligent, thoughtful, musically talented, and loved to travel. She sang in several local musical groups, and cruises to the Caribbean were a favorite destination. She retired from a successful career in Nursing, and enjoyed many hours of Duplicate Bridge, earning the ACBL Bronze Life Master designation in 2009.
As important as all of these achievements were to her, Janet truly cherished her family and friends above all else. She was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by many.
Janet is survived by daughter Kathryn (William) Doliber of Manteo, NC; daughter-in-law Wendy Zimmerman of Mill Hall, PA; and grandchildren Brian Doliber, Aimee Zimmerman, and Anson Zimmerman. She was predeceased by her son Edward R. Zimmerman and grandson Adam S. Doliber.
There will be no public memorial service.
