OLT, Janet A.
Age 91 of Dayton, OH, peacefully passed away at Kettering Medical Center while surrounded by love, Friday evening, April 29, 2022. She was born
Friday, January 16, 1931, to
Edward and Elsa (neé Rinne) Olt. Janet graduated from
Stivers High School, attended Wright State University, and
Miami University - Middletown. She worked for Michigan Bell Telephone Company for 4 years, then 30 years as a supervisor for Ohio Bell
Telephone Company (both now known as AT&T). Janet retired from AT&T and worked as a Travel Agent for another 18 years! After a second retirement, in her spare time, while
serving on several boards with David's United Church of Christ, Janet selflessly volunteered more than 4000 hours for Kettering Medical Center, as well as delivered mobile meals to local families for Meals-On-Wheels.
For 17 years, Janet belonged to the Ohio State Chapter of the P.E.O. Sisterhood - a women's-only Philanthropic Educational Organization that celebrates the advancement of women, providing education through scholarships, grants, awards, loans and the stewardship of Cottey College. The P.E.O. Sisterhood members are motivated to achieve their highest aspirations, and helping other women reach for the stars through state and international educational projects. (More information can be found by visiting: http://www.ohiopeo.org/ ) Janet also loved to travel. So many summers were spent enjoying Douglas Lake, MI. She enjoyed classical music, particularly
attending live events by Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, as well as attending musicals and plays. In her later years, she would spend hours and hours working on cross-word puzzles and playing computer
Solitaire. Janet is preceded in death by both parents, Edward and Elsa; siblings, Martha Breidenbach, Edward R., Kurt, and Robert Olt, as well as Charlotte Cole.
