What a competitor! The senior team I played on made it to Nationals in Tucson one year - I remember the trip fondly. In the meantime one could find her at the BSU games cheering for the home team. Boise will miss you.

I loved your mom. Many days of my youth were spent at the Herndons. Sleeping on the trampoline, was always an adventure. I did spend a day with your mom. We both showed up alone, with self made signs. We were protesting the invasion of Iraq, at the corner of Milwaukee. We had a great afternoon talking about families, life and all the fun times.
She was a wonderful lady.
Healing prayers for the family.

My memory is that she always had a smile and a sweet word for everyone she met. An icon in the Boise tennis community, I will sincerely miss her grace.

Many hours of my youth were spent at the Herndon house. Mrs. Herndon (Janet) was always pleasant and accommodating to all of us who visited. Yes, I slept out on the tramp as mentioned in the obituary. We played baseball in the side yard as well. R.I.P. Janet Herndon!

Janet would come into the office at Peasley's often, always a smile with a greeting. It was pleasure being around her. One Special Lady!
