Watson-North Funeral Home is honored to be of service and ministry to the family of Arlynn “Lynn” Jansky, age 59 of Winchester. Ms. Jansky passed from this life at her residence Monday August 18, 2020. She lived, worked and was educated in Illinois. While traveling in the South in 2003, she discovered and fell in love with the beautiful mountains, lakes and landscape of Franklin County. In 2007 she relocated to Winchester where she made her home until her untimely death. While she lived in Illinois she operated her father’s hardware store and also worked in the healthcare field as a phlebotomist. After coming to Winchester she continued her work in healthcare at what was then Bedford Hospital in Shelbyville. She also served as a volunteer at Hospice Compassus in Tullahoma. She will be remembered by those who knew her best as a kind and generous person who never met a stranger, her keen sense of humor, her wit and her gracious spirit. She had an aura around her the lit up the room when she walked in. Among her many interests she loved to water ski, do landscaping, fish and read, especially John Grisham and Stephen King novels. Ms. Jansky is preceded in death by her mother, Arlene Boehm Jansky, her father, Thomas Michael Jansky, Jr. and her maternal grandparents, Bernice and Andy Boehm and her beloved cat, Ashton. She leaves to mourn her passing and cherish her memory, her daughter, Sara and her husband, Calvin Short of Winchester and beloved friends, Lisa and Jimmy Wiseman of Winchester. The family will receive friends at Watson-North Funeral Home on Friday August 28, 2020 between the hours of 6 and 8 p.m. A private celebration of life will be held at the First United Church, UCC of Belvidere.
