Acquard, Janet Isabelle was born to the late Mr. and Mrs. Edward and Elizabeth Anderson. She was born in Mankato, Minnesota, December 22, 1935. She passed away October 15th, 2020 at Cannon Rivers Senior Living in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. She was married to Richard Acquard on August 18, 1956 and to this union three sons and two daughters were born; David Acquard, Karen (Jim) Stiehl, Renee (John) Benver, Kevin (Sharon) Acquard and Brian (Michele) Acquard. First child arrived in 1957 with the rest following to make a family of 5 children in 6 years. This influenced her decision to be a stay-at-home mom until her youngest went to school full time. She was a beautiful example of sacrifice, foregoing many material pleasures and always putting her children's needs above her own. Her employment at FMC and Burlington was to fund a college education for her 5 children. Once their children were grown and on their own, Richard and Janet were able to spend about 10 winters in Texas after purchasing a trailer home on a golf course. The rest of the year was spent enjoying and spending time with her children and grandchildren at frequent family gatherings. Her love for them was her greatest joy. This love and her sense of humor and ability to take endless teasing from her silly family will truly be missed. She was preceded in death by her husband of almost 60 years, her parents and 2 brothers. She is survived by her children, 12 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and 1 brother. There will be a private Mass at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in Brooklyn Center, MN on November 28th, 2020. Glen Haven Chapel 763-533-8643
