Janet Ytterberg


Janet G. Ytterberg, 90, of Sawyer, Michigan and St. Petersburg, Florida passed away on Sunday, December 3, 2017 at Westminster Shores, St. Petersburg, Florida.

Janet was born on January 18, 1927 in Chicago, the eldest daughter of Arnold and Pearl (Peterson) Gustafson. On September 11, 1948, she married the love of her life, Ralph Ytterberg. Janet and Ralph traveled the world, and lived in 15 different places, but they always enjoyed summers with friends and family in Michigan. Ralph died in 2004, and for the last 13 years she missed him greatly. Janet was a proud and devoted wife and mother, and she provided a rich legacy of family and faith.

Janet had the wonderful ability to make each of her grandchildren believe that she or he was her favorite.
