Janet A. Chamberlain, 73, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday March 22, 2017 at her home where she lived with her love of 12 years, Harry Shireman.

Janet owned and operated the Mifflin Inn for 34 years where she nurtured and loved countless employees and customers. She enjoyed traveling throughout the US and was teased by her children for being a walking Atlas. Janet never knew a stranger and had tremendous compassion for anyone in need.
