Janet Kay (Moser) Nelson, 76, was surrounded by her family when she passed away on Friday, November 5, 2021 at St Catherine Hospital in Garden City, Kansas. She was born on August 21, 1945 to Alice (King) and Albert Moser in Greeley, Colorado. Albert died when Janet was five years old. Alice later married Ernest "Shorty" Baker and Janet was grateful that he came into their lives. Janet married Art W. Nelson on July 24,1965 at the Sublette Christian Church.\n\nTogether, Janet and Art owned and operated Nelson Implement Company in Copeland where she managed the books, kept the inventory, and scheduled customers. The building on main street still bears the company name. Janet was an enthusiastic member of the Red Hat Society where she enjoyed spending time with her friends in the community. She was active in the American Legion Auxiliary and a member of the Copeland United Methodist Church.\n\nJanet and Art would spend weekends going to drag races where they showcased the power of their white '66 Ford Fairlane. Drag racing became the family sport, leaving everyone with fond memories of time spent in the shop working towards the next trophy. When the Nelson family wasn't drag racing they could be found camping at Lake Meade, Scott County State Lake, and Fort Supply Lake. These camping and fishing trips became treasured time spent with children and grandchildren.\n\nJanet was a passionate Copeland Vikings fan who supported her kids in all their activities and athletics. She and Art never missed a game! Later, they transitioned to being South Gray boosters, supporting their grandchildren in sports and music. All students of the Copeland and South Gray schools knew they could count on the faithful support of Art and Janet Nelson. Janet loved the enthusiasm and passion that the band members displayed and especially enjoyed it when they played "Sweet Caroline."\n\nJanet was young at heart and was energized by young people. She had a can-do attitude and would often offer words of encouragement to friends and family. Janet's tremendous sense of humor often filled a room with her characteristic boisterous laughter. She was the matriarch of the Nelson family and will be greatly missed. \n\nShe is survived by her daughters, Shanon Hayes of Copeland, KS, and Natalie Glassco and husband Scott of Montezuma, KS; two sons, Bart Nelson and wife Elizabeth of Springfield, MO, and Matt Nelson of Topeka, KS; eight grandchildren, Nic, Kylee, Jarod, Madison, MacKenzie, Connor, Cierra, and Blake; two great-grandchildren, Aurora and Amelia; sisters, Joan Regneir of Harlingen, TX, and Debbie Lucas of Cheyenne Wells, CO; brothers, Mike Baker of Cheyenne Wells, CO, Ernie Baker of Port Huron, MI, and Jimmie Baker of Port Huron, MI; numerous nieces and nephews; and many dear friends.\n\nJanet is preceded in death by her father, Albert Moser; mother and stepfather, Alice and Ernest Baker; sister, Juanita Moser; brother, Donnie Moser; sister-in-law, Roberta Moser; and brother-in-law, Mike Lucas.\n\nA Book Signing will be from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 11, at Weeks Family Funeral Home & Crematory, Sublette, Kansas.
