Janet and Von restored and moved into a historic home on Rising Street in Davison, MI in 1968. Janet’s love for creating a beautiful family home would eventually lead her to pursue a successful 25 year career in real estate starting in the 1970s. In addition to raising her family and working, Janet was an artist; her treasured paintings can be found in family and friend’s homes and she did commissioned portraits.

The Veit’s attended St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Davison where Janet enjoyed singing in the choir and participating in the Women’s Guild. Those that wish to make a contribution in Janet’s name may donate to St. John’s.
