Janet Lee Bergh Thompson was born on June 28, 1960 in Breckenridge, Minnesota to parents Franklin and Annie Layhon Bergh. Her family moved to Hallock, Minnesota in 1964 and then to Clearbrook, Minnesota in 1966. She graduated from Clearbrook High School in 1978. Following high school, Janet attended Bemidji State University while working as a waitress and at area nursing homes. She also had been the activity director at Good Samaritan in Clearbrook.

Janet was united in marriage to Robert Thompson on February 22, 1992 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Bagley, Minnesota. After their marriage, they moved to the farm in Hill River Township where they lived and raised their family. In addition to caring for her family, Janet worked at Cenex as deli manager and at the Office in McIntosh.

Janet was also a creative person and loved music. She enjoyed photography, gardening and had the gift of playing the piano by ear. She also enjoyed nature and being outside. Many wonderful family memories were created at Jepson Lake by their farm.

Janet loved being around people and was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. She cared for her family with her wonderful cooking (nobody would ever go away hungry), decorating for every holiday, and with the love that she shared. She will be dearly missed.

Janet passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 at her home at the age of 58 years.
