Obituary for Janice Yvonne Egerton Congleton

Janice Yvonne Egerton Congleton, 83, passed away from this life on February 13, 2020 at Meadowthorpe Assisted Living in Lexington, KY. She was born on April 12, 1936 to the late James W. and Frances Williamson Egerton in Bedford, KY.
In her younger years, while her husband, Charles served in the Air Force, stationed in England, they enjoyed their time traveling all over Europe. When arriving back to the states they started a small engineering firm in Lexington, she managed the finances and Chuck managed the sales/engineering. The company is now known as CMTA, Inc. She owned and managed her own rental property business in retirement. Jan was not afraid of hard work, always painting, repairing and cleaning her rental properties. She found pleasure in refinishing old furniture and bringing it back to life. Christmas was one of her favorite holidays, she loved cooking big meals and gathering her beloved family together, especially at the Congleton farm in Sulphur, KY, where it became a family tradition of cutting a Christmas tree, having homemade chili, hot dogs and delicious hot chocolate. Everyone left with homemade ornaments and special holiday memories. Jan was talented in needle work, loving to knit and crochet, leaving behind beautiful handmade works of art for all her family.
She leaves to mourn her passing, her children, Brooke Nevius and her husband Bill of Louisville, KY, Lee Congleton and his wife Frederica of Bedford, KY, and Christian Congleton and his wife Marilyn of Lexington, KY; her sister Sue Egerton Lippert of Louisville, KY; seven beloved grandchildren, Nathan, Parker, Ali, and Tori Nevius, Hannah and Keegan Congleton, and Jackson Congleton.
Janice is preceded in death by her parents; her husband Charles Wickliffe Congleton, who passed away on January 14, 2009; two brothers Bill and Charles Egerton; one sister Maureen “Mockey” Oak Luhn.
