Obituaries » Janet Louise Abner

Janet Louise Abner, 73, passed Saturday, November 23, 2019, at her home in Bealeton.

She was born May 9, 1946, in Garrett County, Maryland, to the late Melvin and Annabell Kisner. 

Janet was one of a kind with a heart of gold. She lived a quiet life and spent it loving those closest to her. Janet was selfless and giving to others was what brought her happiness. Janet took pride in her house and loved to be outside working in her flowerbeds and yard, creating a home wherever life took her. In her younger years, she was an avid bingo player! Janet loved dogs. When she grew too old to have her own, she would carry treats around with her so she could love on the dogs she met along the way. Janet was a strong-willed woman who was loved deeply by her family and will forever be in our hearts.  

Janet is survived by two daughters, Tamie Bennett of Culpeper and Sissy Howard and her husband Sean also of Culpeper; two siblings, Wanda and Donald Kisner, both of Oakland, Md.; three granddaughters, Erica Gorrell (Scott), Jennifer Gebelein (Scott) and Olivia Howard; three great grandchildren, Paige Bennett, Granger Gorrell and Keylie Gebelein, and a son-in-law, Eric Bennett of Fayetteville, N.C. 

In addition to her parents, Janet was preceded in death by her husband of 13 years, Joseph Abner, and two brothers, Roger and Ronald Kisner. 

The service and interment private.
