Janet Nancy (Thomas) Aranda, age 57, of Omaha, Arkansas

Janet Nancy (Thomas) Aranda, age 57, of Omaha, Arkansas found eternal peace January 13, 2023, in Branson, Missouri. She entered this life August 3, 1965, in Riverside, California, to Tommy and Donna (Eye) Thomas. 

Filled with love and passion, Janet was the most beautiful-hearted person you could meet and possessed an enormous personality for such a small person. Funny, feisty, and stubborn, she was a fighter who loved others ferociously. Obsessed with her yellow jeep, Janet was also known as a NASCAR fanatic, a loving wife, protective mother, and an overindulging grandmother. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Janet, Gerard, and Timmy are once and for all together for a wonderful reunion.

Janet is preceded in death by her father, Tommy Thomas; love of her life and husband Gerard Aranda; brother Timmy Lee Thomas; and beloved dogs Mongo and Mischief.

Janet leaves to cherish her memory her daughter Amanda and husband Nick of Lake Charles, La; grandchildren Austin, Abigail, and Annalise; mother Donna Thomas of Lead Hill, Arkansas; three sisters: Terri and Tony Griffenberg of Hawaii, Cheryl and Kevin OConnell of Kingman, Arizona, and Sherry and Cesar Mogollon of Long Beach, Mississippi; and many nieces, nephews, and extended family, including all who knew her as Grandma Janet.

A private celebration of life will be planned for a later time in Louisiana. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks. To leave an online condolence, please visit
