Janet M. Liddick, 74, of Marysville, PA, left this world on Thursday, August 31, 2023 with her loving family by her side. Janet was born in Hershey, PA on December 21, 1948. She was the daughter of the late Charles and Dorothy Miller.
Janet graduated from Lower Dauphin High School in 1967. She was a “Jill of all trades,” and she could do anything she set her mind to. She worked as a baker for many years, first at Weis Markets and later for Giant Food Stores, until her retirement. In addition, she and her husband owned and ran an antiques business, J and A Liddick’s Antiques, Collectibles, and Such. Over many years, they sold items in various co-op stores as well as their own stores in Duncannon and Newport, until the time of her passing.
Janet was a very petite woman with a huge personality. She was often described as “sassy” and a “firecracker.” She was fiercely loving, intelligent, and kind. She was outgoing and made friends everywhere she went. She loved her family and friends, and she was always willing to help anyone. She loved visiting antique shops, flea markets, estate sales, or anywhere she could unearth a great find or deal.
Janet truly touched the lives of so many. Among the people she leaves to celebrate her life and memory are her husband of thirty-three years, Arthur Liddick, her three daughters, Kathy Irvin, Dawn Garland and fiance`, Chris Gates, and Tricia Deatrick and husband, Kirk Deatrick, her four grandchildren, Joshua Irvin, Thomas Garland, William Garland, and Brandon Liddick, and two great-grandchildren, Willow and Christopher. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brother, Wayne Miller, her son, Robert Liddick, and her son-in-law, Scott Irvin.
