Janet Richardson-Baughman died peacefully with her husband of 28 years, John, at her side October 29, 2014. She is survived by their children Amy (Adam) Schwartz, Jennifer (Trey Gilbert) Baughman, Jessica (Dan) Richardson; brother William (Patricia) Ganger; sisters Linda Velderman, Georgette Johnson, Patricia (Jack) Dendel; and grandchildren Bobby, A.J. and Iris. Longtime Lowell residents, the two raised their wonderfully blended family on their small horse farm. Janet loved her horses and rode in the discipline of Dressage achieving national honors and championships from the United States Dressage Federation of which she was a lifetime member. Internationally known artists, Janet and husband John worked side by side on projects commissioned by architects, interior designers and art consultants as well as private collectors worldwide. Having earned an MFA from Indiana State University in ceramics, she developed several series of clay murals designed for the wall. In later years, she taught herself to paint and developed many, many successful series sold through galleries in Europe, Asia and extensively in the United States. Janet had such rich and rewarding relationships with her children, grand children and children who needed a guiding hand though they were not hers except in spirit. They will sustain her and be sustained through her memory. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to aid Amyloidosis research at the Mayo Clinic through the website, www.whoisamy.org.
