Local residents say goodbye to a former Washington County public defender.
Janet McKim, 68, passed away yesterday at Marietta Memorial Hospital.
She graduated from Marietta College and practiced law for several years with her father.
Following her private practice, she started up the Public Defender's office in Southern Ohio, and continued to work there until her retirement in 2006.
McKim was a part of the local AA program and was very proud of her 32 years of sobriety.
Memorial services will be held 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, January 30th, at Hadley Funeral Home Reno Chapel.
