CAMPUS  – Janet L. Smalley of Campus, Illinois passed away at Riverside Medical Center on November 19, 2021. According to Janet’s wishes, cremation rites were accorded and no services will be held. Instead, she’d ask that you admire the falling leaves, feed the birds, and most importantly, spend time with loved ones. Memorials in honor of Janet may be made to the American Heart Association. Hager Memorial Home in Dwight is in charge of arrangements. Janet was born June 14, 1948 in Ottawa, Illinois, a daughter of Hershel and Martha (Woodruff) Martin. She married James H. Smalley, Jr. on May 11, 1976 in Morris. He survives in Campus, Illinois. Also surviving are her daughter, Dana (Micheal) Bennett-Tejes of Campus, Illinois; grandson, Gunnar Tejes of Campus, Illinois; nieces: Cathy Elzer and Carol Baker; nephews: Joseph Elzer, Michael, Martin and Mark Hettel. She was preceded in death by brother, Donald Martin; and sisters, Darlene Elzer and Delores Hettel. She graduated from Ottawa Township High School. After high school she worked for Pinkerton Security. Janet loved her family and spent the last 30 years as a homemaker. She was immensely proud of her grandson, Gunnar. She loved listening to him sing and play music. She could beat just about anyone at Yahtzee and had a special talent for finding four-leaf clovers just by looking down at the grass. She will be missed by all who knew her. This obituary may be read and condolences left at: hagermemorial.com
