Janet Louise Tackett, age 76, of San Saba, Texas, passed away on Friday, February 7, 2020 peacefully at her home surrounded by her family. A private family memorial service will be held at a later date.

Janet was born Saturday, June 12, 1943 in Tyler, Texas to Allen and Helen Perry. She graduated from Kermit High School in 1961.

Janet married Clyde Tackett on May 25, 1985 in Chandler, Texas. Together, Janet and Clyde had five children. They lived in Imperial, Texas where she was active with the Volunteer Fire Department. Janet also enjoyed working at the Imperial School.

In 1995, Janet and Clyde moved to San Saba, Texas. Having always preferred to spend time outdoors, Janet worked several years for the USDA. Janet took great enjoyment in being a wife, mother and grandmother. She was known for being a fabulous cook and loved gardening. Janet particularly loved teaching her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren how to cook, sew and knit.

Janet loved history. She enjoyed collecting antiques and took great pride in the restoration of the turn of the century home that she and Clyde shared in San Saba.

In addition, Janet looked forward to getting together regularly with her lifelong friends. But most of all loved spending time with her family.
