Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Janet Denise Van Pelt, age 64

Janet Denise Van Pelt of Conway, Arkansas passed away November 17, 2022.

Janet was born June 3, 1958 to Henry Leslie and Peggy Van Pelt.

Janet wore many hat’s during her day, but it wasn’t until a misdiagnosis that unfortunately led her out of early retirement from South Western Bell that we all learned just what this woman was truly capable of! Janet jumped in feet first back into the job market taking whatever came her way!

More times than not she worked two job’s to make sure her girls continued dance lessons, softball, volleyball, all while never missing a game or performance. She was the definition of a mama bear who loved her cubs more than life itself! I loved to listen to her sing while cooking or putting on a show for us while in the car to one of many tournaments. You are truly missed and will be forever cherished.

Janet is proceeded in death by her Daddy Henry Leslie Van Pelt Jr, mother Peggy Van Pelt, sister in-law Kay Van Pelt and brother Michael Van Pelt.

Janet is survived by her two daughters Lesli (Colt) Powell and Kylie Bowden, her grandchildren Dylan, Riley, Shiloh, Khloe, Presli and Kenzie Powell all of Mayflower, Ar. brother Gary (Elwanda) Van Pelt of Sherwood Ar, and sister Carol (Bobby) Taylor of Scott Ar. along with many nieces and nephews.

A memorial will held later this year to honor this amazing woman I was fortunate enough to call my mama.

Cremation arrangements are by A Natural State Funeral Service & Crematory, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas, 72076. 501-982-3400. Janet’s online guestbook is available at
