Janet will always be remembered by many in the Busby area where she taught kindergarten for many years. I remember fondly the many times she shared her creative ideas with me as the grade one teacher next door. She truly was so very kind and patient. I send my condolences to Kris and Maria and their families.
I’m so sorry for your loss.

I remember Janet with fond memories. I remember when she lived in the suite at Mom and Dad's house. She was really a part of the family! I remember her baby-sitting all 6 of us monsters and never did she raise her voice . Many times she could have punished us but never did. She had the patience of a saint. She seemed to be happy all the time. We couldn't have been luckier to get her as a sitter and friend. With much love and hugs!
