Janet Ann (Greene) Ammann

Janet Ann (Greene) Ammann, of Chelsea, MI, age 84, passed away on April 30, 2023 at University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI.

Janet was born on July 26, 1938 in Detroit, MI to Harold and Anna (Hodor) Greene and was the oldest of four daughters. She moved to Ann Arbor and graduated from St. Thomas High School in 1957. She subsequently earned a Diploma in Accounting from Cleary College in 1960.

She lived between Ann Arbor and Chelsea for more than 70 years and most recently was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Chelsea. Janet worked as a bookkeeper for the family dry cleaning business in Ann Arbor and later for two insurance agencies (Shehan and Kleinschmidt) before retiring. She enjoyed reading, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and particularly cherished her time traveling outside of the country. She treasured time with her grandchildren whenever there was an opportunity. She was very family-oriented and attended as many gatherings, school activities, and sporting events as she could. She also enjoyed time with family on Strawberry and Cavanaugh Lakes, singing her favorite Neil Diamond songs while boating. Her presence in our lives will be forever missed.

Janet is survived by her two sons, Mark (Amy) Ammann of Dexter, and David (Kelly) Ammann of Bad Axe; six grandchildren: Alicia (Lukas), Alex, Gretchen, Sean, William, and Lucas; brother-in-law, Ronald Rinker of Harbor Springs, MI; as well as numerous beloved nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her three younger sisters, Joyce Gauntlett, Christine Taylor, and Patricia Rinker.
