Janet Louise Strickling was born February 23, 1947 in Columbus, Ohio. She lived most of her life in Maryland, graduating in 1966 from Northwestern High School in Hyattsville, MD. She worked for thirty-three years for the U.S. Department of Agriculture at the Beltsville National Agricultural Library. Janet was a great lover of dogs and other animals. She was beloved by her friends and family for her kind disposition, her sweet smile, and her joyous laugh. Janet lived the last years of her life at the Fairhaven retirement community in Sykesville, MD where she passed away on April 25, 2020 after a brief battle with COVID-19 and a long struggle with kidney disease.
Janet is survived by her sister Ann Strickling, her brother Lawrence Strickling (Sydney Hans), her three nephews Taylor Strickling (Laura), Alec Strickling (Samantha Steelman) and Robert Strickling, her great niece Elizabeth Strickling, and family dogs Gracie, Tiffany and Walter. Janet is the daughter of the late Dr. Edward Strickling, a professor of agronomy at the University of Maryland, and the late Dr. Cloria Strickling, a reading teacher and administrator for the Prince Georges County Public Schools.

I knew Janet from the time I worked at NAL, for about twenty years. She was kind, good hearted, and loyal. My sincere sympathy for your loss.

I knew and worked with Janet for 2 years as a companion at Fairhaven. Over those two years we became good friends. I'm going to miss Janet very much. She was a very special lady. I admire how she fought so hard against her many health challenges. She had an infectious laugh and a giving heart. She was loved by many and she was very loving in return ...May she rest in peace. I will cherish our memories together ❤️

In Loving Memory of Ms. Janet. I was a caregiver to this very special lady & had known her for quite a few years. She had a wonderful big smile & always had her arms open for a hug. She liked to shop for new clothes & was very meticulous. She was a very kind person & she took care of her two friends & we called them “The Three Musketeers”. They looked out for each other. May her Family find comfort,peace & strength in the coming days & know that she is at her final resting place in Heaven with The Lord. She had a long illness & took it in her stride. God Bless you & Thank You for the memories. Love, Yvonne, CGNA🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻
