On October 18, 2020, in Panguitch, Utah our dear mother and unwavering example of faith, hope, charity and unconditional love, Janet Eddley Ott Pollock, returned to her heavenly home and reunited with family and friends awaiting her there. Janet was a dedicated and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and devoted friend. Her kind and gentle personality and bright smile instantly endeared people to her.
Born on September 16, 1932, in Tropic, Utah, Janet was the second youngest child of six, born to Joseph Alma and Mabel Franzella Charter Ott. She was raised in Tropic by a loving mother and close relatives after the untimely passing of her father when she was eight years old. In her formative years she spent the summer months on the family ranch in Yellow Creek and often shared many fond recollections of living in a one room cabin with her family. She graduated from Tropic High School in 1950 and later attended Dixie College.
Janet met Jack Pollock at an annual Gold and Green Ball in the old Tropic Ward building. They were married October 30, 1951 in the St. George Temple and began their lives together in Hawthorne, Nevada working for the U.S. Navy. They started a family, beginning with Jacki, then Jerry, Joe, Jean, Gayle and Jack William. In the summer of 1974, they returned home to Tropic and would begin a new chapter in their lives.
Janet’s life, though sometimes filled with difficult challenges, was a beacon of hope to all who had the privilege of knowing her. She was the epitome of service by always placing the needs of family and friends before her own. She excelled as a mother and homemaker and was well known for her dinner rolls, fruit pies and sugar cookies among many other treats and dishes. Janet welcomed all into her modest home and would make sure everyone that entered received a meal or tasty treat before departing. She was happiest when she was with her family in the outdoors and thoroughly enjoyed playing softball, watching the annual World Series, roasting hot dogs, looking for arrowheads and spoiling her grandchildren.
Janet loved and knew her Savior and was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many callings with complete commitment and diligence. Janet faithfully studied the scriptures and the inspired messages in the Ensign magazine where she found solace and spiritual strength. Her bedroom light could be seen burning bright each evening as she read and pondered.
Janet is lovingly remembered by her children: Jackilyne Blais, Jerald Pollock, Joseph Pollock, Jean (Ken) Hall, Gayle (Marie) Pollock and Jack William "Wid" Pollock; along with nine grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandson. She is also survived by her two siblings: J. Robert Ott and Joseph Ott.
Janet is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Jack; parents, Joseph and Mabel Ott; sister, Rella Alvey; brothers, McCune Ott and Stanley Ott; grandson, Jeremy Aaron Kincaid.
