Janet Miller Sachs, 90, of Mt. Pleasant, SC (last 8 years) and prior to that of Lancaster, PA, passed away Sunday, February 11, 2018.

She is survived by her sister Doris Miller Brock, her daughter Natalie Baker and her husband Brett and her three grandchildren: Jacqueline Baker, Ethan Baker and Grant Baker.
