Janet L. Gillette 56, passed away on March 21, 2022, unexpectedly. Janet was born in Frankfort, Germany on January 10, 1966. She graduated from Parkland Highschool in El Paso, Texas, and went on to marry Edward L. Gillette III (Eddie) on September 29, 1991.
Janet began her banking career with American Bank of Commerce in 1989. Her banking career included various positions to include Branch Manager at various financial institutions. She spent the last 7 years working with her amazing TFCU Family. It seemed as if she had found her professional calling again. Watching her share her experience and knowledge with this team was inspiring to me and the TFCU team overall.
Janet is preceded in death by her mother Margot Spiller, Father Larry Bemis and Brother Jerry Savin. Janet is Cherished by loving husband Edward Gillette of 31 years, her daughters Alexis, Taylor Gillette Son Corey Payton, Grandchildren Landon and Sean Patyon. She was also cherished by Edward and Johanna Gillette (Mother and Father-in-law), Tony Gillette (Brother-in-Law, Ryan Gillette (Nephew) and Patrick Spiller (Stepbrother).
Janet enjoyed bowling, traveling, gardening and spending as much time as she could with her family and friends. Janet was in the process of planning our retirement activities. Many bucket list items were going to be checked off. A cruise was planned, Lake Havasu was up coming and again planning a trip to Italy. I think I had her convinced to take golf lessons as well.
