Janet Coslet was a kind and generous woman who always gave people the benefit of the doubt, said her daughter, Jennifer Carter.

“She was honest, fair and always kept her word,” she said. “She gave people the benefit of the doubt, almost to a fault.”

Janet Coslet, 65, of Hobart, died Jan. 31.

Carter said her mother raised her four children as a single mother, and was devoted to making sure her children had whatever they needed.

“She always had three jobs,” she said. “She always had time to do the things she knew were important to us. Family was always first.”

Coslet loved people, and could get people to talk about anything, her daughter said.

“She would come home from Walgreens and know the life story of the person she stood in the checkout line with,” she said.

Coslet loved to garden, and always had a vegetable garden and flowers. She loved to bird watch, and had a bush she covered with bird feeders.

“She would sit out there and see what kinds of birds would come,” she said.

Despite her mother’s health problems, Carter said her mother was always courteous and aware of the feelings of those around her.

“She was gracious, even when she wasn’t feeling well,” she said.
