Janet Carol Briley Sink, 84, of Leesburg, Florida, formerly Shelbyville, passed away Monday, January 22, 2024, at UF Health Leesburg Hospital.

She was born July 24, 1939 in Shelbyville, Indiana, the daughter of Perry W. and Ethel M.(Brown) Briley.

She was married to L. Wayne Sink for 20 years until his passing in 1991. Previously, she had been married to Richard E. Elkins for seven years and prior to that, James O. Sartin for four years.

Survivors include her daughter Sheri L. (Sartin) Sharp, her son-in-law Scott Sharp, her sister-in-law Jane Briley, and her special friend, Wiliam (Bill) Schoene. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Wayne, her son Karl Scott Sartin, her brother Karl Norman Briley, and her trusted kitty cat, Sweetie┬Ł.

Mrs. Sink grew up in Shelbyville, graduating from Shelbyville High School in 1957. During high school, Janet had worked part time as a waitress at the former Chicken and Steak Restaurant along with her brother, Karl. After high school, she was employed as a secretary at Chambers Division Altamil Corp. in Shelbyville, and in the 1970s at The Associates Financial Services firm and at Mutual of New York Life Insurance Company (both with offices at that time in South Bend, Indiana).

In the early 90s, she and her husband Wayne moved to Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, V.I., where she was employed with Frenchman's Reef Resort. After Wayne's passing, Janet returned to the U.S. mainland and chose to retire in Leesburg, Florida.

Janet had several neighbors that she considered good friends and she enjoyed the time she spent with them. She was proud of the landscaping she had done and the pineapples she had grown on her property.

Per her wishes, no funeral services will be observed.
