October 6, 1932 — May 18, 2023


Janet Therese Nagle 90, of Indianapolis, passed away, May 18th, 2023.  She was born October 6, 1932 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the daughter of Lillian Elizabeth Healy Bordenkecher and Carl Andrew Bordenkecher.  She attended St. Philip Neri School, and St. Agnes High School.  Janet worked for the Renal Network for 28 years and retired at the age of 81.  

Janet and Bill had 3 daughters and 4 grandchildren.  They were members of St. Pius X Catholic Church.

Janet and Bill enjoyed spending summers in Saugatuck, Michigan, where they spent hours at Oval Beach, watching sunsets and taking walks along the beach.  They passed this love onto their children and grandchildren.  Janet was most proud of her family; family gatherings were her favorite.  Janet loved attending sporting events for her daughters and granddaughters.   

Janet’s dedication for her family was shown through love, support, faith, and prayer.  Janet had a knack for making all feel welcomed and loved in her home.  Janet loved her little dog Lennie; he will certainly miss her presence.
