Janet Lynn Neill Goett


Janet Lynn Goett (nee Neill), of Byrnes Mill, Missouri, was born July 25, 1948 in Mexico, Missouri to John “Holly” and Harriett “Mickey” (nee Travis) Neill and entered into rest Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2022 in Byrnes Mill, at the age of 74 years, 4 months, and 4 days.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a nephew, Brian Neill.

She is survived by her loving husband, Richard Goett; son, Tim (B.J.) Goett; granddaughter, Tateum Goett; brother, Mike Neill; aunt, Kathryn Burkett; cousins, Lori (Dave) Mayerhoefer and David (Michelle) Burkett; and numerous extended family and friends.

As a teacher of 32 years, Janet’s love and compassion for others was shown in everything she did. Through those years she worked at 4 of the Northwest Elementary Schools and worked in the public relations department for Dave Mungenast. She never gave up the chance to have a girl’s trip, whether it be to the mall or to a beach. Making memories that those around her will never forget was one of her favorite things. Though she wasn’t a fan of fishing she found herself with her husband and her son multiple times just to make those memories. Her smile and wise words will forever be with those she touched. Janet will be fondly remembered and dearly missed by those who knew and loved her.
