Ms. Janna H. J. Bellwin of Stamford, passed away peacefully at her home on April 29, 2019 after a lengthy illness. She was 70.

Ms. Bellwin was born in Madison, Wisconsin in 1948 and raised in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. The valedictorian of Woodridge High School in 1966, she received her AB from Barnard College (1970) and JD from New York University (1973). Upon graduation from law school, Ms. Bellwin worked at the New York office of Baker & McKenzie for her entire 41-year career. She became the office’s first female partner in 1980 and later chair of Baker & McKenzie’s U.S. Banking, Finance, and Major Projects Practice Group. A world traveler, she was an active member of First Presbyterian Church in Stamford for more than 40 years. She enjoyed her long-time book group as well as volunteering at her grandchildren’s elementary schools.

A 41-year resident of Springdale, she is survived by her daughter, Jeri (Tom) Savage of Wilton; son Mike (Heather) Bellwin of Norfolk, MA; her pride and joy: grandchildren, Abby and Colin Savage of Wilton; sisters, Jeramy Ridder (Dan) of Eugene, OR; Jill Nester of Cuyahoga Falls, OH and Julie Jones of Cuyahoga Falls, OH; brothers, Mike Jones of Cuyahoga Falls, OH; Jeff Jones (Mary) of Ann Arbor, MI and David Jones (Jen) of Newfane, VT, as well as countless nieces and nephews, and friends, too many to count. The family would like to thank her supportive neighbors, especially the Siwicki family, for over 40 years of friendship.

Besides her parents, Janna was also predeceased by her husband, Dr Robert O. Bellwin of Stamford.

A celebration of life service will be celebrated at the First Presbyterian Church, 1101 Bedford St, Stamford on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 10 AM.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the ALS Association CT Chapter, 4 Oxford Rd, Milford, CT 06460 or at www.alsact.org.

We are sorry for your recent loss. The death of a loved one is difficult, continue to lean on God, friends and family. God will always give you comfort, as found in the Bible at (2Cor 1:3-4). He will soon take away death (1Cor 15:26), and he will soon return our loved ones by way of the resurrection (John 5:28-29).
Please search the article “When someone you love dies”, at JW.org it greatly helped us through a difficult time and we hope it can help you to gain some comfort.

Janna was a great person, enormous heart and excellent professional and partner, she will be truly missed by us in Brazil. Janna took my heart in my old days as an ATP in NY in 1998, she pratically adopted me in her corporate team and I learned so much in working with her and seeing her in action. Thanks Janna, for all the teaching and friendship. I am also thankful for us keeping in contact until very recently and for exchanging our families loving pictures and letting us seeing your grandchildren growing fast and beautifuly. Our thoughts with Janna's family now and her beloved grandchildren. Anna (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
