Janet Bancroft, longtime Seibert, Colorado resident passed away on Friday, December 17, 2021, at Porter Adventist Hospital in Denver, Colorado, surrounded by her loving family. She was 85 years old. Janet Elizabeth Luebbers Bancroft was born June 14, 1936, in Marienthal, Kansas to John Henry Luebbers and Teresa Marie Werner Luebbers. She was the seventh of eight children born to this union.

She was very creative and loved any kind of craft project. We all benefited from her love of quilting over the years as she lovingly created many beautiful quilts for all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
