Suit yourself… that’s what she said.
Janet Hutchinson Porter born October 30, 1929 ( the beginning of the great depression) to Edith Janet Montgromey and William Henry Hutchinson in Buhl, Idaho. She was 5th child of 8. And the smartest. She graduated from BYU where she was a loyal BYU sports fan. ( The Lord’s University), with a BS in Elementary ED and a Masters in Reading Specialist. She married the love of her life, Roland Haws Porter, they were sealed May 3rd, 1949 in the Salt Lake Temple. He was the cutest man she had ever met. She taught him to love all BYU sports, including Basketball and Football, which he had never seen before. Inturn, they taught their children to love them also. Mom attended home football and away games well into her 70’s. She knew the BYU fight song and sang it loud and proud. One of her favorite pastimes was putting together puzzles, gluing them and hanging them on the wall. Where they still hang. She was a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (She was one of them Mormons). Janet loved the Lord, Jesus Christ His Son and the true gospel. She did her best to teach her children to do the same. And to think for themselves. She and Haws were blessed with one outstanding child who had 4 siblings. Mom taught Elementary school at Union, Grantsville and Central. Mom had one amazing grandchild and she tolerated the rest. She allowed them to take over her kitchen and cook anything they wanted to. Mom was also blessed with a bunch of great grandchildren and a herd of great great grandchildren all of which she loved dearly.
She was preceded in death by a hellava (or as she would spell H-E double toothpicks) lot of people. And Haws was one of them. She is survived by her darling children Glynn, Karalinn (Calvin) Kasmer, Robert (Michelle), Khem (JoLeigh) and her caregiver companion daughter, RusCene.
At 11:15 am on Monday July 26, 2021, Haws stood up from his chair and said, “leave your pain behind, come with me and let’s go home… To our beloved Escalante.”
