Judy (Lowther) Boggs just got a call from Janyll's sister, Kristin Booth Kramer, saying that Janyll passed away on Sunday, June 4, 2017, in Edwardsville, Illinois. Judy wrote, "She was in midst of 7th chemo treatment but her body shut down. She suffered a lot from disease plus COPD and liver problems but she did put up a good fight. Services will be in Edwardsville this weekend. Very, very sad."

Janyll (Marjorie Booth) Sadler passed away on Sunday, June 4, at 6:15pm, at seventy years of age. She was held in the arms of her beloved husband, Steven E. Sadler, when the angels came to take her. They would have been married for fifty years this December. Janyll is the mother of two daughters, Kaaryn (Kristin Sadler) McLeod and Addye (Adryenne Sadler) Largent. She had three loving and beautiful granddaughters, Holly, Annabelle and Addy. She was a very proud mother-in-law to Stephen Largent and Scott McLeod.
Janyll was born on December 12, 1946, in Detroit, MI. She was the middle child of Enid and Weston Booth, and a sister to Karen (Booth) Cabout and Kristin (Booth) Kramer. She spent most of her growing up years in Lake Forest, IL, creating many memories as a “Booth Girl”. Janyll was ambitious, smart, talented and full of life as a child and an adult. She graduated from Lake Forest High School and attended Butler University in Indianapolis, IN. Her time at Butler was nothing short of activities, friends, academia, and richness of life. She was a dancer, swimmer, attended all major school functions, and was a part of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. It was at Butler that she met and married her adoring husband, Steve.
Steve and Janyll built a life together beginning at Butler University, graduating and moving to Antioch, IL, then Rockton, IL, and eventually ending up in Edwardsville, IL. She was an educator throughout her life, and retired as a public librarian. Janyll lived as a resident in Edwardsville for the past thirteen years, where she delighted in friendship, laughter and bridge playing. She took great pleasure in being around her friends, and loved sharing time with others. She enjoyed talking, laughing, building new relationships and card playing immensely. She was never without a good book in her hand, and has always been an avid reader of various genres.
What she found the most happiness in was spending time with her family. The greatest joy she knew was when all of her immediate family was close together. Over the years, memories were built together in the home at holidays, weekend visits, birthday celebrations and vacationing together in northern Wisconsin for the past 33 years. Her smiles, home cooking, laughter and conversation will be greatly missed. Her laughter and sharp witted humor would light up a room, and she brought vast amounts of energy where ever she went.
Janyll touched and influenced many lives throughout her journey. Those who knew her understand this remarkable spark of light, joy and passion that she carried with her. She shared her integrity, strong character and love in all her relationships.
Her family will celebrate her life this weekend in Edwardsville, IL. Visitation will be held on Friday, June 9, from 6:00-9:00pm at Weber & Rodney Funeral Home, 304 N. Main Street, Edwardsville, IL, 62025. A memorial service will be held at the same location on Saturday, June 10, at 11:00am.
Be of Good Cheer.

I remember working with Janyll on junior prom committee.  She had a pre- prom party for all of us at her house. RIP.  Ann Evans
