Janet M. Ammerman, 90, of rural Julian, passed away at her home, on Sunday, May 2, 2021, surrounded by her family. Janet was born on February 3, 1931, in Port Matilda, the daughter of the late Lewis W. and Dorothy Williams Gill. On January 10, 1976, she married Ernest G. Ammerman, who preceded her in death on October 14, 2016. Janet is survived by her sons, John Stanley Craig and Lewis I. (Karen) Craig both of rural Julian and her daughters, Jeanne Straley (Phil Deihl) of Bellefonte and Tina (Jonathan) Storms of Warriors Mark, her step-daughter, Marcia (Neil) Roberts of Minnesota and step-son, James (Paula) Ammerman of Texas. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Jacqueline Roberts, Terri Klinefelter, Troy Craig, Shawna Stem, Renee Craig, Janelle Traxler, Jonna Straley, Jeana Lucas, Trevor Schall, and step-grandchildren, Matthew Roberts, Katie Miller, Rebecca Blackler and Eric Ammerman and  nineteen great-grandchildren and numerous other nieces, nephews and cousins; two brothers, Tommy (Wilma) Gill of Hawaii and John (Deborah) Gill of Julian.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, John Sebring Craig, her grandson, Lewis Craig; her brother, Donald Gill and her sister, Donna Maitland.
Janet was a homemaker and also worked outside the home in her early life at Harry Stiver’s Store, Fleisher's Market, and Weis Market Deli.  She also worked at home  health agencies, providing in-home care for the elderly and handicapped. Janet's most treasured times were spending it with family at home, at family picnics, or traveling the United States to visit family with Ernie. A summer get-a-way to Ocean City, NJ annually with her "girls" was very special to her.  Janet was a member of The Bald Eagle Baptist Church for more than 40 years and served as a greeter at the church doors and made more cakes, pies and potato salad than can be remembered for gatherings. Her  peach pie was a family favorite and won first place at the Grange Fair.  Janet served God faithfully through her love and devotion to others. Her warm smile and kindness will  be forever in our hearts.
Memorial contributions may be made to Bald Eagle Baptist Church, 6644 S. Eagle Valley Road, Port Matilda, PA 16870, in Memory of Janet M. Ammerman.
Services will be held at the convenience of the family, with Pastor Ben Lee and Pastor David Spaugh officiating.  There will be no public visitation. 
Burial will be in Oak Ridge Cemetery, Union Township, Centre County, PA. 
Janet's family would like to acknowledge and thank Laura, Donna and all the care-givers from UPMC Hospice Care for their professional and kind care of our mother.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of The Dean K. Wetzler Funeral Home and Cremation Service, Inc., 201 Spring St., Milesburg. Online condolences may be made to the family at www.deankwetzlerfuneralhome.com

We would always sing together with her wonderful mother Dorothy who , would play the piano , her mother Dorothy would sing along with us. As teens we were always having fun ,like going on the Wilson Line (boat that went up and down the river) .. We continued to keep in touch all of our lives with letters and visits.My deepest sympathy to all of the family. I loved Janet.Her and I were oldest Best friends . Love Norma

Lewie, Karen, Jeanne and family, our condolences to all of you. Janet was such a lovely woman. She and Ernie were the best neighbors, when we lived beside them on Rattlesnake Pike. She was such a kind, thoughtful lady, always had a smile and something nice to say. You are all in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time.
