Janet Walter Pringle passed away at 97 at the Sequoias in Portola Valley on August 9.
Janet grew up in Sacramento and later attended UC Berkeley, where she met many lifelong friends. She married E. Covington Pringle (Covie) in 1949 and they spent the early part of their marriage in Red Bluff and San Anselmo. They settled in Woodland in 1952, shortly after their son Bob was born.
Janet and Covie were very active members of the Woodland community and were surrounded by good friends.
She moved to Portola Valley in 1999 and joined many a bridge table over her years at the Sequoias. Janet was an excellent golfer and was a member of the Yolo Flyers Club.
She enjoyed cooking, entertaining, gardening, bridge, crossword puzzles, reading, volunteering with the Junior League, and being part of an investment group for more than 30 years.
She was preceded in death by her husband Covie and her son Bob Pringle. She is survived by her daughter-in-law Maggie Pringle and her grandchildren, Abby, David and Will Pringle. A family service will be held to celebrate her full life.
