Janette Hayden Warren

 

Janette Hayden Warren, 85, of Owensboro, passed away Tuesday, February 21, 2023, with several family members by her side, immediately after the sacrament of Last Rites was prayed over her. She was born May 2, 1937, in Beech Grove, to the late Joseph Henry Hayden and Verna Marie Ball Hayden. She attended Beech Grove Elementary School and Mount Saint Joseph Academy High School. On Oct 6, 1956, Janette married Robert M. “Bob” Warren from the West Louisville area of Daviess County.   

After high school Janette worked as an administrative assistant in downtown Owensboro for Mr. Ellis of Ellis Horse Park, and later as a Juvenile Court stenographer at the Daviess County courthouse. Once they started their family, Janette devoted her time and energy to farm-life homemaking while raising her and Bob’s nine children. She was a member of the McLean County Homemakers since the late 1950’s.   

Janette’s hobbies included flower gardening, oil painting, hooking decorative rugs, and braiding wool rugs. These artistic endeavors produced many treasured family heirlooms. Her paintings were displayed in county and regional art shows and fairs. Mrs. Warren also stayed busy canning vegetables for their large family and was active at St Alphonsus Catholic Church. Because she valued learning, Janette organized a neighborhood Book-mobile stop at their house through the Daviess County public library. The Warren’s also square danced in the Merry Makers Square-Dancing Club of Owensboro throughout the 1970’s. 

Along with her parents, she was also preceded in death by her by her brother, Joe Hayden; and her sister, Margilee Hayden Alvey, both of Beech Grove. 

Janette is survived by her husband, Bob Warren; their nine children, Vicki (Steve) Van Becelaere of Grand Rapids MI, Bob (Holly) Warren II of Henderson KY, Ginny (Jeff) Cowan of Naperville IL, Tracy (Paul) Miller of Stanley KY, Fran (Chad) Lamb of Indianapolis IN, Ted (Darla) Warren of Lexington, KY, Penny (Keith) Melton of Owensboro, Peg (Jamie) Tipmore of Owensboro, and Elizabeth Warren of Owensboro. Janette is also survived also by her and Bob’s 22 grandchildren, Heidi (Van Becelaere) Cece, Joe Van Becelaere, Whitney (Warren) Mangold, Taylor (Warren) Baldwin, Cheyenne Warren, Presley Warren, Savannah Warren, Nick Cowan, Heath Cowan, Kristin Miller, Nolan Miller, Olivia Miller, Ellen (Lamb) Adams, Isaac Lamb, Hannah Warren, Sara Warren, Oliver Melton, Elliot Melton, Isabella Tipmore, Jack Henry Tipmore, Kathryn Gist, and Robert Gist; 13 great-grandchildren; and three sisters, Martha Voges of Middlesboro, KY, Susan Towery (Jim) of Owensboro, and Lynne (Mickey) Scott of Beech Grove.
