Janet Louise (Knittel) Blevins was born on December 12, 1927 in Mooreland, Oklahoma to Ramey J. and Flossie Anna (Hamilton) Knittel.

They made their first home in Mooreland. They were blessed with two sons, Greg and Rex. Janet and Wyman owned a service station and garage in Mooreland and also had a Tag Agency in the station.
