Janet Kay Field

August 4, 1936 — April 29, 2023


Janet Kay Field, 86, of Casper Wyoming passed away in Loveland, Colorado on April, 29, 2023, after a brief illness. Her loving husband, Floyd, along with grandchildren Jessica Claycomb, Carlie Field and  husband Sam Percy were by her side.

Janet was born August 4th, 1936 in Hawk Springs, Wyoming to homesteaders Earl and Ruth Arnold. Raised on a homestead Janet knew the value of a hard day's work at a young age. One story Janet loved to share was how she demonstrated her bravery by showing her sister's cow at the fair in Denver, all by herself as a young girl. She also enjoyed helping their hired hand (Uncle John as she called him) herd and care for Turkeys. Janet and Floyd later joined her grandchildren Shane and Michele Herron, on a farm west of Casper for 26 years.

Janet married the love of her life, Floyd Field on 8/2/1977 in Casper, Wyoming. Floyd and Janet were married for 46 years. They enjoyed each other immensely, and did almost everything together, from socializing to dancing to farming.

Janet owned and operated The Homestead Motel in Lingle Wyoming until 1963. In 1968 Janet moved to Casper Wyoming and worked for the Natrona County School District. She retired in 1991 after 23 years of service in many capacities and positions.

After retirement Janet enjoyed volunteering for community organizations, including time delivering Meals on Wheels with Floyd, and serving as a Pink Lady at Wyoming Medical Center. Janet was busy almost every day with activities at the Senior Center and church. She enjoyed playing in the bell choir, as well as playing the organ and piano. She also, along with Floyd, received the President's Award in 2010 for their service to Wyoming Association of Rural Water Systems.

Janet had served as president of the Doll Club, having collected hundreds of dolls. She was proud to do a "Doll Tour" for anyone who asked. Janet spent her days decorating, reading, gardening, watering plants, solving jigsaw puzzles, and working out sudoku numbers. She had great memories of her trip to Oman and her cruise to the Panama Canal. She loved going to her class reunions in Hawk Springs every year.

 Janet was quite the social butterfly, always seeing a familiar face in every crowd. She could find a connection with everyone she talked to. Janet never met a stranger, and she will be dearly missed by all.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Paul (Martha) Arnold,  Ted (Tressa) Arnold and sister Wilma (Blaine) Ronne and Wilma's infant twin brother Wilber, brother in laws Don Turner and Jim Ellis.

She is survived by her husband of 46 years Floyd Field of Wyoming. Son David Ruff of Montana, her daughter Linda Montoya (Ronnie) of Wyoming.

Her daughters thru marriage, Chryl Field of Colorado and Sandy Field of Wyoming and son Bruce Field of Colorado. Also surviving are many grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchildren.  Sisters Elnora Turner of Arizona and Myrna Ellis of Wyoming, along with numerous nieces, nephews and their children.
