Janet Nora Helene Butchart, of Hanover, passed away peacefully at Hanover and District Hospital on Monday, March 6, 2023. She was 74. 

Born in Walkerton on March 31, 1948 to the late Noah and Sadie (nee Herbst) Brusso. Janet was in retail for most of her working career. Many people will remember her at Pharma Plus, Rexall, Zellers, Mac's and Hanover Auto Wreckers. Before starting her family she worked in the law office of Glen Crawford. She was always quick to pull out the camera for any event or occasion to capture those special moments, so much so that being behind the camera made it difficult to get a photo of herself enjoying these times. She rarely forgot a birthday or other special occasion, marking the event with a specially selected greeting card. 

Survived by daughter Victoria (Craig) Miller of Mineville, Nova Scotia, sons Andy Butchart (Alysa Beirnes) of Hanover, and Matthew Butchart (Darlee Gerrard) of York.  Loved grandmother of Dustin and Elouise. Remembered fondly by her siblings Katherine Weber of St. Thomas, Barb (Paul) Foerster of Ayton, Richard Brusso, Kenneth (Linda) Brusso both of Normanby Township and Mary Schlorff of RR4 Hanover as well as her nieces, nephews and their families. Predeceased by her parents, brother Robert (Theresa) Brusso and her brother in law Neil Schlorff.
