Janet Marie Aylsworth, age 61, passed away surrounded by family on Saturday, March 11, 2017, joining her beloved husband, Warren. Janet was born Dec. 2, 1955 in Traverse City to Stanley and Marian (Stefaniak) Schopieray.
She graduated from Traverse City Central High School, and on Oct. 31, 1991 she married Warren Aylsworth.
Janet was fiercely protective and strong-willed - she had a huge heart. She loved coffee and cleaning her house - they just went together - and making her famous zucchini bread. She loved her grandchildren and spending time with them, especially walking through the woods, playing outside and building things together. She also loved filling them up with candy.
She is survived by her son, Warren (Whitney) Aylsworth; her daughter, Danielle (Zach) Mullen; and her grandchildren, Warren III, Grant, Charlotte and Chief.
Janet was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Warren Richard Aylsworth; and brothers, Steve, Ron and Dan Schopieray.
A memorial service is planned for Monday, March 20, 2017, at noon, with visitation one hour prior, at Covell Funeral Home of Traverse City.
