Janette M. Rapp (née Delamater), 66, of Acworth, GA, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend, went home to glory and into the joy of her Lord Jesus the evening of January 16, 2021 after a series of brief illnesses. She was born in Schenectady, NY, where she graduated from Draper High School in 1972 and married her husband Dennis in 1977. While her heart was to be a stay-at-home mom, she selflessly worked at various administrative jobs over the years to help with family expenses and, most importantly to her, provide a Christian school education for her children. Janette was full of courage and kindness, loved to share the hope and good news of Jesus Christ with others, and lived life as a servant to all. With a twinkle in her eye, she brought encouragement, warmth, and laughter to everyone she knew. On those fortunate enough to enter her home, she showered extraordinary hospitality, kindheartedness, and her excellent cooking. She even opened her home over the years to many who needed temporary lodging and medical care, blessing them with compassion and a generosity that is seldom seen in these times. She had a beautiful voice and loved to sing in harmony with others, especially when worshipping The Lord. She is survived by her husband of 43 years, Dennis Rapp of Acworth, GA; children Matthew (Nicole) Rapp of Olympia, WA, Noelle (Matthew) Brinkman of Biloxi, MS, Jared Rapp of Acworth, GA and Geoffrey Rapp of Acworth, GA; grandchildren, Abigail Rapp, Evan Rapp, Katie Rapp, James Brinkman and Eliza Brinkman; siblings Jack (Jackie) Delamater of Mesa, AZ, Bill (Pat) Delamater of Port Kent, NY, Suzanne Piering of Amsterdam, NY, and Jeff (Christine) Delamater of Peru, NY; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
