Janet Marie Robson Stokes

Obituary Date: Saturday, August 14, 2021

It is with great sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Janet Marie Robson Stokes on August 14, 2021, at the age of 55. Her family and friends mourn the loss of such a beautiful soul. She made an incredible impact on all that she met. She lived for adventure and shared that passion with those that she cared about. She was one of the most generous people in the world. She loved to spread joy to all those around her. She is survived by a loving fiancée, Allen Green; her father, James Robson; her mother, Diann Jenner; her brothers, Jim Robson (Darnell) and Roy Wathen (Debbie Lynch); stepsister Sherry Tamez (Daniel); ten nieces and nephews, and 8 great nieces and nephews, Allen’s 3 children and grandson. She is preceded in death by her sister, Krissy Lemke. While Janet never had children of her own, she adored her nieces and nephews. She treated them all as her own.

Janet’s love for travel and adventure was a beautiful part of her soul. She loved to explore new places and share them with those that she loved. She lived life to the fullest and was purposeful in planning every trip to make the most of every situation. She loved to laugh and spend time with her family. Her actions spoke volumes. She showed up for her loved ones. Whether it be a baby shower, graduation, birthday, or a time of need- she was always there. We never doubted her love for us. She was an incredible person. She was quick to offer positive, uplifting words when you needed them most.

Janet was born in Attleboro, Massachusetts, on September 16, 1965. She remained a New England Patriots fan and loved to watch the games with her brother, Jim. In 1977, Diann, Krissy, Janet, and Jim moved to Port Charlotte, Florida. She graduated as a National Honors student from Charlotte High and received a volleyball scholarship at Rollins College. She moved to the Atlanta Area in 1985, where her father and brother ultimately settled as well. While she frequently traveled, Gwinnett County remained her home base. She met Allen in 2016 and her friends and family could instantly see the joy and companionship that he brought to her life. They were engaged to be married in Banff Gardens, British Columbia, when the COVID travel restrictions were lifted. She was employed by Westdale Asset Management, where she was loved and respected by her coworkers.

There will be visitation and a memorial service at Flanigan Funeral Home and Crematory in Buford, GA, on September 4, 2021. Visitation will be 11 a.m. till 12 Noon. The memorial service will be from 12 p.m. until 1p.m.
