Janet M. Stutzman
October 30, 1947 - September 3, 2023
Janet M. Stutzman, age 75, of New Castle, DE, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 3, 2023.
Born in Chester, PA on October 30, 1947, she was a daughter of the late Edward G. and Wilena (Hutton) Ebright of Boothwyn, PA. After an almost 30-year career at Siemens (formerly Dade Behring and DuPont) in the Accounts Receivable department, Janet embraced the opportunities afforded to her in retirement. She enjoyed traveling across the country in her camper with her late husband, their dog Sandee, and often other members of her FCRV (Family Campers and RVers) camping group. She was an active member of the Weston Senior Center and the MOT Senior Center, volunteered her time at the Neighborhood House, and was a member of the Black Pots Outdoor Cooking group. Janet was an active member of New Castle United Methodist Church, where she delivered Meals on Wheels, was a member of the women’s group, and attended Bible study.
When she wasn’t traveling, Janet enjoyed quilting, Phillies baseball, bowling, trying new recipes, reading her bible, and, most importantly, making memories with her family. Some of her best memories were made being “Mimi” to her grandchildren, whom she took along on many vacations, taught to sew and cook, and served as a cheerleader at all of their sporting events and other clubs and activities.
In addition to her parents, Janet was preceded in death by her husband, Charles M. Stutzman. She is survived by her children, Sharon Horrocks, Sean Williams, and Scott Williams (Marie); five grandchildren, Cody, Scott, Jr., Alyssa, Jordan, and Peyton; sister, Lois Davis (Stephen); brother, Edward Ebright (Jimmie); a host of nieces and nephews; and many lifelong friends.
A visitation for family and friends will be held from 4:00 PM until 6:00 PM on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 North DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, where a funeral service will begin at 6:00 PM. A committal service will begin at 11:00 AM on Thursday, September 21, 2023, in the chapel of the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 2465 Chesapeake City Road, Bear, DE.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Janet’s memory to the New Castle United Methodist Church, 510 Delaware Street, New Castle DE 19720.
