Janet was born October 9, 1931 in Canton, Ohio to Fred and Lillian (Benedum) Rhine. She attended Timkin High School in Canton, graduating in 1949. She was a member of the marching band and orchestra, playing clarinet and violin and worked while in school at Heggey's Candies. One of her favorite gifts to give at Christmas were these candies. After graduating she married Dad, Eugene Haren, on August 20, 1949 and resided in Canton bringing three boys into the world before relocation to Aston, PA in 1962. While in Aston she was employed by PMA Insurance in Wilmington, DE as a claims adjuster. A final move to Kennewick, WA was made in 1975 where she worked for JC Penny and See's Candies. Mom was an active bowler in both PA and WA. She enjoyed family vacations, travels and Elder Hostel trips with her husband Gene to many States and Countries. Mom was a devout Catholic and member of St. Joseph's Parish in Kennewick, where she was an active member of the Catholic Daughters of America participating in the monthly bake sales and various other activities, as well as weekly Adoration at the Chapel for 22 years.
