Janet E. Connelly, age 71, of Fargo, ND, passed away on Saturday, January 17, 2009, in MeritCare Hospital, Fargo. Janet Eileen (Myrold) Connelly was born to Arnold and Edith (Nerland) Myrold in Crookston, MN, on July 14, 1937. She grew up in the Crookston area and graduated from Crookston High School in 1955. She worked for Northwestern Bell for a time in Crookston and then eventually moved to Fargo. On January 16, 1960, she was untied in marriage to Roland E. Connelly. They made their home in Fargo, where for many years Janet devoted her life to her family, raising four children. In 1979, Janet went back to work as a switchboard operator at the Fargo Federal Building. She then spent many years caring for her grandchildren. Her husband, Roland, died in 1995. Janet then worked for a time as a "sample lady" in the bakery at Northport Hornbacher's and Sam's Club.

Janet was best known for her cooking. She loved to cook for all the family occasions. She also loved decorating her home for all the holidays, but she especially loved baking and decorating at Christmas time. Janet was a very loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her children and grandchildren were her pride and joy. She will be greatly missed by all her family and friends she leaves behind.
