Janet M. (Stilt) (Schillhahn) Youngblood, a longtime resident of Half Moon Bay, Calif., passed away peacefully on Oct. 13, 2011, at Mills-Peninsula Hospital in San Mateo, Calif. She was surrounded by family and friends and was at peace with the world.

A devoted patron of the arts, Janet was born June 22, 1918, in Kentucky, moving to Phoenix, Ariz., in 1932 with her mother and four siblings. The eldest of the children, she was lovingly called "No. 1" and was called upon early on to help support the family. She entered the employ of Bell Telephone while still in high school and, with her office skills, rapidly rose in the company.

When World War II began, Janet was one of the first women in Arizona to be accepted into the Officer Training Corps of the Women's Army Corps. Her service in the Women's Army Corps was outstanding and she rapidly rose in rank, exiting the Corps at the end of the war in the grade of captain. Her service medals are the Women's Army Corps Medal, World War II Victory Medal and the American Theater Campaign Ribbon.

Janet touched many lives during her time on earth by her compassion and care for others. And, with her quick sense of humor, she became known to many as a friend who could be counted on.

Janet was preceded in death by her beloved mother, Jane Marshall Stilt, and sisters Helen V. Greer, Roselyn L. Stilt and Carolyn B.L. Roberts. Janet is survived by her brother, Frederick M. Stilt Sr., nephews Frederick (Rick) M. Stilt Jr., Mark V. Stilt, and nieces Linda Tielking and Robin King and a host of friends.

She will be missed.
