Obituary

Obituary for Janis I. Longlott

Janis Irene Longlott, 87, of Wyomissing, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 14, 2021, in the care of the Manor at Market Square. She was the widow of Lawrence J. Longlott, who passed away on August 28, 2018, after 63 incredible years of marriage.

Born and raised in Reading, she was the daughter of the late Lewis Hart and Irene (Schmoyer) Bohn. She was extremely passionate in celebrating and remembering her German and Pennsylvania Dutch roots.

After graduating from Reading High School in 1951, a beloved Reading High cheerleader, Janis earned her nursing degree in 1954. A natural caregiver, Janis first was employed at Berks Visiting Nurses before taking a position at the Reading Hospital. She was last employed in the office of Dr. Imber until her retirement in 1974.

Her passion for family and history led to her involvement and membership of the Berks Co. Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She also held many roles and positions through the years at the Berks County Historical Society, and even worked side by side with her beloved daughter, the late Kimberly Longlott for many years. Janis was also a beloved member of the Reading Liederkranz and the Evergreen German clubs and shared timeless memories of music and laughter with her family and friends at both locations.

Janis' memory will be treasured by her granddaughter, Mallory Fredericks. Her laughter, smile, fierceness, and unconditional love will live on through her. Janis enjoyed her life to the absolute fullest. When we think of Janis, we think of friendship, traveling the world, musical theatre, card club, luncheons, laughter, and love. Her memory will also live on through her adopted cat Petey. Janis and Larry were avid animal lovers and always had cats, dogs, or both. Janis rescued many cats and dogs and gave them a forever home. In lieu of flowers we know she would prefer a donation made in her honor to the Animal Rescue League, 58 Kennel Rd, Birdsboro, PA 19508.

A celebration of life will be held on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 1 PM at Atonement Lutheran Church, 5 Wyomissing Blvd, Wyomissing, PA 19610. Friends are invited to gather from 12:30 until the start of services. A maximum of 110 people are allowed to attend services. The Edward J. Kuhn Funeral Home, Inc, is entrusted with arrangements. Condolences, tributes, and fond memories may be expressed at www.kuhnfuneralhomes.com.

Dear Mallory,
My husband, Al, was a classmate and friend of your grandmother all through high school at Reading High. I met her when we were both nursing at the Reading Hospital after Al and I moved back to Reading in 1958.
She was very helpful during Al's campaign for judge along with her many classmates. With meetings at our home, I was able to get to know her better.
We were together at the Historical Society where she had us help her on committees and projects. She was certainly one of the "pillars" at the Historical Society.
She always spoke of you in a loving way, proud of your accomplishments and very happy you found a great man to share your life with.
She will be missed.
With our sincere sympathy,
Albert and Orpha Stallone

We are sending our deepest sympathy to Janis’s family and friends. We remember her fondly as a former member of our Reading Liederkranz Auxiliary and many fun times enjoying food, drink, and conversations at the Liederkranz Club. I always appreciated her support in my
German Exchange with students and
adults with our Partner City of Reutlingen and her great interest in history. RIP dear
Janis.

I met Janis through the Berks County Chapter of the DAR. Our family has raised a number of project puppies for The Seeing Eye. When we would see each other , we always discussed our love of dogs and our pets. I remember her smile.
