Jana Lebiedzik was born in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia. During her early life she experienced many harsh realities of communist rule. In 1968, she immigrated to the US and married her then boyfriend who had earlier escaped to the US.

The daughter of Anna-Maria Valuškova, a seamstress, she had a sensitivity to form, shape, color, and sound which led to a lifelong passion for music, fashion, architecture, and most importantly her garden and the flowers in it. She had a deep appreciation for nature, enjoying the outdoors and protecting the environment.

She passed many of these sensibilities to her only daughter Catherine Lebiedzik who she leaves behind along with Catherine's husband Michael Baloh and four children Alexander, Chloe, Maxwell, and Theodore who will miss her deeply. She is preceded in death by her mother, Jozef Valušek, her father, her younger brother Vaclav, and her grandson Nicolas Baloh.

In the end, she will be laid to rest in a green cemetery - just a sunny pasture of wild flowers where she can enjoy nature as she enjoyed it in life.

A memorial service will take place on Saturday, August 31, 2019; 11:30am, at St. John Episcopal Church, 2326 Woodward Ave., Detroit.

In Lieu of Flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Glaucoma Research Foundation:

Treasuring memory of many, many times siting with you on my bench in Tudek Park, State College, admiring the spring flowers and new leaves, abundance of summer flowers, gorgeous colors of fall leaves.... discussing opera....
I miss you Janinka moja.
Hope my contribution to the Glaucoma Society will help to fight that dreadful disease.

My family and I treasure hundreds of loving memories and shared experiences with Jana , Catherine and their families. Jana and I were very close because we had a shared cultural identity and often saw the world in the same way.
It was our pleasure to make a contribution to the Glaucoma Research Institution.
Odpocivaj v pokoji, draha Janinka.
