What a Great Lady ,
I was her neighbor on Minnick, she enjoyed my young ones as we started a family.
Over the years we’d talk on the phone.
Years ago she called me just to say “ I’m still alive “ 😁, & we had a nice conversation. I looked up to her as a young mom , so glad we moved to Minnick next door to Janette & Ken.
Deepest Sympathies to the family, Karen

Our condolences to the family of Janette's. We enjoyed many a card game with her brother Mitch . Visiting her with Mitch was always a treat. Going to lunches was something I always looked forward too. She'll be greatly missed by all of us. I'm thankful to have had her as a wonderful friend over the years.
