Blake and Leonie Blake.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husbands, Marvin L. Bauserman and Joseph H. Jamerson; sister, Helen J. Blake; brother, John D. Blake; and stepdaughter, Pamela J. Wright.\r\n\r\nJanet served in the U.S. Navy in Washington, DC, working as an assistant in a classified position from 1942-1945. While in the service she took flying lessons to become a pilot but when the war ended, she chose to return home to her family. Janet married Marvin L. \u201cBudd\u201d Bauserman in 1955 and moved to Charleston, WV, where she spent her time as a dedicated mom, volunteered at church, ladies\u2019 clubs and was active in many organizations. She enjoyed spending time at their beautiful camp on the Greenbrier River, gardening and hiking with daughter, Pat, and her mother, who spent summers away from New York in the hills of West Virginia with her.\r\n\r\nAfter the death of her husband, she moved to Lewisburg and worked as a receptionist and accountant for Haynes, Ford, Rowe and Guills, Attorneys at Law. She also worked summers in the office at the State Fair of West Virginia. In 1985, Janet married Joe Jamerson and moved to Dillwyn, VA, where she enjoyed rural life in the company of his children and grandchildren. Janet continued to work with the church, library, women\u2019s club and many other organizations.\r\n\r\nAfter Joe\u2019s death, she returned to Lewisburg and spent her final years at The Seasons Assisted Living facility. She was an avid book reader and never afraid to dabble in music, art, writing, and sewing. She began a project making dolls for children displaced from their homes due to domestic violence and donated the dolls to the Family Refuge Center. She inherited a wry sense of humor from her family - when asked if she thought she would go to heaven, she replied, \u201cNot if they ask too many questions!\u201d Finding her place in the world was easy as she dedicated her life to helping her family, friends, and others. Generous to a fault, no request was too large, no assistance overlooked. Surely she flew through the gates of heaven with a wave and a smile.\r\n\r\nJanet is survived by her sister, Eleanor Walsh; daughter, Patrice \u201cPat\u201d Bauserman; stepson, Hank Jamerson (Debbie); stepdaughter, Debra Roberson (James Maize); niece, Jacci Davis and her son, Roger; nephews, Darrell Blake (Lynn) and Sam Bauserman; three grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.\r\n\r\nA service will be held at Wallace & Wallace Funeral Home in Lewisburg on Sunday Oct. 29, at 2 p.m. with Rev. Rick Brown officiating. Interment with Military Honors will follow at Rosewood Cemetery in Lewisburg on Sunday, Oct. 29.\r\n\r\nA memorial service will be held Nov. 5, at 2 p.m. with the Rev. Jimmy Dunn officiating at the First Baptist Church in Dillwyn, VA.\r\n\r\nMany thanks to all the nurses and aides at The Seasons who became not only caretakers but trusted friends.
