Tue, Feb 9th 2021 03:50 pm

Janeene Stoddard (nee Phanco) of Mesa, Arizona, a resident of Grand Island for over 50 years, passed away peacefully on Jan. 6, 2021, at the age of 82 to join her recently departed husband and best friend Fred of 61 years.

She is survived by two sons, Paul (Lisa) and Phil (Jill); and a daughter, Amy (Wylie). She is grandmother to 10 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

She served as a registered nurse for over 45 years working the ER night shift at Kenmore Mercy Hospital in Tonawanda and the Banner Healthcare System in Mesa, Arizona.

She was a talented artist who also loved cooking, sewing, and tackling a challenging crossword puzzle, when she and Fred weren’t traveling.

She cherished the time spent with lifelong friends and was always making new ones in retirement through her golf, painting and quilting groups. She was an avid Bills fan to the end.

A memorial will be planned for late spring. Share condolences at www.kaiserfuneral.com.
