Janet Dupree Ladwig

God took Janet Ladwig, of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, on December 21, 2017. Janet will now be over seeing all of us from now to eternity.

Janet Carol Dupree was born on June 6, 1959, in Sandy Springs, GA. She attended Auburn University and never let’s us forget that she is and always will be a “War Damn Eagle”. After college, Janet married Jeff Ladwig in 1982 and moved to Southern California shortly thereafter to build a new life together for 34 years.

While in California, Janet started a business career with Kelly Services where she worked until the birth of her only child, Karli Marie Ladwig in 1995. Since, that time, Janet has been the perfect volunteer mom and wife by always sacrificing her own time to support others. She was a room mom, Girl Scout leader, soccer team mom, fund-raiser and charity event ambassador. Whenever someone needed help, they called on Janet. Everyone remembers Janet for her kind heart and big smile, her willingness to help wherever and whenever possible, and of course her wonderful Southern cooking.

Survivors include Jeff and Karli along with her father, Ed Dupree. The life of Janet will be celebrated on January 4, 2018 at Oak Creek Golf Club in Irvine, CA between the hours of 2-5pm (memories will begin to flow at 3pm). All friends are welcome. The following morning, the family will take a small journey out to sea, to lay her remains to rest.

To send flowers, and for more information, please contact O’Connor Mortuary at 949/581-4300 or visit her obituary page at www.OConnormortuary.com

  1. Janet was room parent for our class when I had Karli in my 3rd grade classroom. Janet was ready to help out in any way to support me and my students. Whether it was copying, organizing, filing, or anything that needed to be done for any teacher…Janet was always there with a smile on her face and a willingness to support everyone.

    Jeff and Karli – I am so sorry for your loss. Janet will be forever in your memories and your heart. May God’s peace surround you and comfort you during this painful loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    All of our memories of Janet have her with a loving smile on her face and a tad of mischief in her heart. She was always enthusiastic about gathering people together and helping to support others when they were in need. Janet had a special spirit that will be missed by all that knew her. Jeff and Karli, we’re so sorry for the loss of Janet. She treasured you! The Faris Family

    I’m thankful for Janet’s sweet and caring self, who always wanted to know about my family. Her fun bingo nights. And her enthusiasm for dressing up for Halloween. Her pride and love she showed when talking about Karli. She always brighten my day and will be missed! Jeff and Karli, prayers and love to you both:heart:

  4. Janet and Jeff were neighbors of mine many years ago. I remember her fondly and she was such fun. My heart goes out to Jeff and Karli. It is not an easy road Jeff as Gary passed away 2 years ago. One foot in front of the other. My heart is with you. Much love to you and Karli.

    I grew up as a neighborhood friend and soccer teammate of Karli’s. I remember always begging for my mom to let me go down the block to Karli’s house!! Janet was always so sweet and kind to me. I have the fondest memories of her making healthy snacks for us (and also days we got to eat Girl Scout cookies-those were the good days). Whenever I had classes with Karli, Janet was always looking for ways she could serve the teacher and take a load off of her! She was truly an angel in our tiny community of young families and I know her life continued to be so full. May she Rest In Peace.
    Jeff and Karli- May God bless you during this time of grieving! Janet was an amazing woman.
