Janett was born September 3, 1935 in Mesquite, TX to the late Gipp & Ruby (Blaylock) Reynolds. She died Sunday, February 24, 2019 in Sulphur, at the age of 83. Janett and Buddy Britt were married on November 28, 1952 in Ardmore, OK. He preceded her in death on January 22, 2017.

Janett grew up in the Prairie View area. She attended school in Stratford until the second half of her senior year, when she transferred to Sulphur High School, graduating in May, 1953. Throughout their 64 years of marriage, Buddy and Janett made their home in Sulphur until 1973, when they began traveling and moving often with OG&E. In 1978, they settled in Calvin, OK, where they owned and operated the Calvin Quick Stop for several years.

Janett was a very devoted mother and grandmother. She had an unwavering love for her family and cherished every minute she had with them.

In her spare time, she enjoyed baking, sewing and reading. Janett was a member of the First Free Will Baptist Church of Calvin.
