Janet G Sorensen, age 65, passed away peacefully on Wednesday September 18, 2019 in the loving and caring home of Landmark Memory Care in Lafayette CO. Janet was born on April 29, 1954 in Chicago Heights IL to Robert and Cathryn Schopf. Janet attended grade school and high school in Momence IL and on April 14, 1973 she married Randy Sorensen from Crescent City IL. Together they had 2 children, Valerie and Randall (Buddy). Janet and Randy and the children moved to Colorado in 1980. She worked at Denver Dry Goods before starting a career at Storage Technology in Louisville CO that spanned more than 20 years. One of her fond memories at Storage Tech was her trips to China to help train in the Storage Tech manufacturing process. After Storage Tech she worked for a short time at First RF in Boulder CO. Janet had a wonderful personality that resonated with everyone she interfaced with. Janet truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; spoiling the grandchildren, loving her 2 children, husband and all of her family and friends. Janet loved making costumes and dressing up for Halloween with the kids and enjoyed every holiday to the fullest. Janet had very accomplished artistic abilities with her paintings and sewing and has her work displayed around the family home. Janet had an uncanny ability to reach people in a deep and positive way. Janet is survived by her husband Randy; her daughter Valerie Montoya; her son Randall (Buddy);  her mother Cathryn Schopf; 3 sisters, Cindy Jensen, Barbara Lockhart and husband Sandy; Kathy LoCascio and Larry: 1 brother, Robert Schopf and wife Kim and 7 Grandchildren.
