Janet Marilyn Thibault

Janet Marilyn Thibault, 65, of Alpena passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, May 3, 2021.
She was a loving and caring mother, grandmother, sister, and companion that will be dearly missed.
Janet was born on Aug. 27, 1955 to the late Edward and Ida (Liske) Ritthaler in Alpena, Michigan. After
graduating from high school, Janet had many adventures and worked in many different atmospheres.
She found great joy in being a bartender because that is where she met the most interesting people. She
could always be found having a deep conversation or listening attentively. Janet was what most would
consider a “social butterfly” and loved being around people. She also enjoyed gardening plants/flowers,
laughing, having lunch with her sisters, and cooking (she was known as an amazing cook by many). Janet
also loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She cherished the time spent and
gave every bit of love to them that she possibly could.
She is survived by her children, Nicole (Dave) Edwards of Montrose, MI., Josh (Shawna) Thibault of Bay
City, MI., and step children, Amy Thibault and Raymond Thibault II, seven grandchildren, Alexis, Layne,
Kyra, Diam, Mackenzie, Hazleigh, and Daxcson, three brothers, Edward (Carolyn) Ritthaler, Floyd (Cathy)
Ritthaler, and Norm (Linda) Ritthaler, seven sisters, Arlene Meyer, Diane Ritthaler, Judy (Herman)
Schiller, Betty Tolsdorf, Carol (Mick) Kaiser, Gayle (Mark) Thibault, and Wendy (Terry) Thibault, many
nieces and nephews, and longtime companion, Mike Mischley.
Family will receive friends for memorial visitation at McWilliams Funeral Home on Friday, May 7, 2021
from 10:00 A.M. until the time of funeral service at 12:00 P.M. with Rev Joseph Llewellyn officiating.
