Janet Nelson was a beautiful person inside and out who always thought of others and not of herself. Loving God and spending time with family and friends were amongst her passions in life. She also deeply loved being with her extended family members at First Presbyterian Church in Port Charlotte, where she attended and served for 35 years, Fawcett Memorial Hospital where she volunteered for 33 years, and Murdock Family Medicine where she established the volunteer program and served as a volunteer for many years. Central to Janet’s loving heart was finding ways to help people in need, and the Shoes for Kids project was one of the important ministries that she was able to support each year. Janet Nelson was a truly inspirational person who set the example as a Christian woman by reflecting God’s love to all. (daughter - Cathy Asaro)
Dan and Phyllis Rolli
In loving memory of Dan and Phyliss Rolli, two angels who shared their love for life with family and friends. They were wonderful people, god fearing, generous souls. They started as customers of Kelli Geddeis many years ago and soon became her adopted grandparents.
They moved from Pennsylvania and made their home in Rotonda Lakes. Phyllis really appreciated “the little guy/gal” who worked hard for their family, sometimes struggled, yet would go to the ends of the earth for their family and loved ones. She and Dan shared their treasures and talents most generously with these individuals. They believed, and knew, that God could get them through any situation which seemed impossible. Their spirits were always full of joy and despite trials and tribulations of life, gave us the greatest gift of all, their friendship. Rest in peace, dear friends. (Kelli and Brad Geddeis)
