Obituary of Janet F. Sobun

Janet F. Sobun

At the age of 58, the good Lord called Janet from this life to himself on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at Presence St. Joseph Medical Center with her family by her side.  She was born in Chicago and was a Joliet resident for the past 16 years.  Janet was a graduate of Immaculate Heart of Mary High School, earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Micro Biology from IIT and her Master’s Degree from DePaul University.  She was employed at Presence St. Joseph Medical Center as senior application analyst and was previously employed at McKessen Corporation. 

Janet will be remembered for being an avid White Sox fan and having a big heart.  She proudly volunteered for Veteran organizations and the Disabled Veterans Organization during their annual Thanksgiving drive.  There were many organizations that Janet would volunteer to help, but her love for people was just as strong as the love of her family. Janet often doted on her nieces and nephews, whom she had a profound love for. There is no greater gift than to help those who need it most, and expect nothing in return that was Janet. 

She was preceded in death by her father, John Sobun (1981) and one sister, Kristine Sobun.

Janet is survived by her loving mother, Blanche E. (nee Raducha) Sobun of Joliet; brothers, John, Tom, Mike (Ann Marie) and Steve (Cheryl) Sobun all of Joliet; two nieces, Kaitlyn and Hannah Sobun; and three nephews, Jake, Nicholas and Ryan Sobun.   

A Memorial Gathering for Janet F. Sobun will be held on Sunday, September 24, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. until the time of service at 12:00 p.m. at the Fred C. Dames Funeral Home, 3200 Black at Essington Rds., Joliet, IL.    As it was Janet’s wish, cremation rites have been accorded.  In lieu of flowers, memorials in her name to the charity of the donor’s choice would be appreciated.  For more information, please call 815-741-5500 or visit her Memorial Tribute at www.fredcdames.com
