Janet Regina Sessions “JJ”, mother, wife, sister, grandma, great grandma, aunt, cousin, friend, animal lover, gypsy, and fiercely loyal protector passed away on February 18th, 2019 peacefully at her home.

Janet was born December 26th, 1945 in Denver, Colorado to Regina Ledgerwood and Leonard Roach. After her father passed, her mother met and married Otto Ledgerwood. In 1966 Janet married Pat Haggerty and together they had three children. Janet and Pat later divorced, and Janet moved to Evanston in 1975, where she continued to raise her three children. Anyone who knew Janet knows she was hard to keep in one place, but she always returned to her home in Evanston. She met and married her soulmate Randy Sessions in 1996.

God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be
So, he wrapped his arms around you
And whispered, “Come with me”.
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A Golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands were laid to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.

Janet was preceded in death by her mother Regina “Butchie” Ledgerwood, father Leonard Roach, her “daddy” Otto Ledgerwood, and her sister Janice Walston (Kenny).

She will be missed dearly every day by her husband Randy, her children Shannon Haggerty, Sean Haggerty, Kathy Haggerty (Mikki) and Tyler Hamilton, sisters Kathy Groth (Richard) and Nancy Slaugh (Rick). Her step children Robert “Willy” Sessions, and Cody “CR” Randall Sessions. She also lives on through 7 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren.

As an expression of sympathy, donations can be made to the ARL or your local no kill animal shelter in Janet’s name.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 PM Monday, February 25, 2019 at Crandall Funeral Home in Evanston.

After the service family and friends are invited to the Knights Inn for food and drinks.

So sorry for your loss. I never meet her but she seems to be a great mom. I lost my mom two weeks ago. It is very hard but I know she is in a better place with my grand parents.

Kathy, Sean, and Shannon,
My deepest condolences on the loss of your dear mother and my Aunt Janet. She had always held a very special place in my heart, as she helped me a lot when my husband died in 1993. Her kind words and actions got me through a very hard time. I love you all and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Your mama was a special lady.
Your cousin,

Chris/Christy Youngman
