I am so very sorry for the loss of your wonderful family member Janet. I live in the Balmoral and I had just been thinking how I hadn’t seen her, I’ve been taking care of my old mother on the Cape. I thought I really need to get with Janet because she is always so healthy and taking care of herself and going to the gym. Janet was ageless, I had no idea how old she was. She helped me with my dog Lucy when she was doing fresh doggy things. She had a heart of gold going to miss her very much. Sending love and blessings and prayers to all of you

I met Janet in the late 1960s through Louise Rockne, a dear friend with whom she worked at the Brookline Public Library and I shared an apartment on Beacon Hill. None of us had demanding jobs and so we spent lots of time hanging out - drinking wine, listening to the Beatles and soul sounds, and generally having fun. Janet was always game for whatever crazy adventure Louise and I concocted while, in her even-handed way, kept us from getting into trouble. I took the photo below with the eggplants after she and Louise returned from an idyllic summer on Crete and were making moussaka for a Greek dancing party we organized. In the early 1970s Louise moved to Australia and Janet lived around the corner from me on the border of Brighton and Brookline. We continued to see each other frequently visiting back and forth, sharing meals, and getting together with friends. She helped celebrate important events in my life - completion of a doctoral program, my marriage, and the birth of our daughter in 1982. Little Kate loved spending time with her new auntie, and Janet agreed to serve as her guardian should anything happen to my husband and me. I really missed Janet after she moved to Andover. We got together a few times a year for lunch and holiday gatherings and spoke regularly by phone. While we did not see each other often, we always picked up where we had left off, sharing our interests and challenges. Knowing Janet enriched my life in many ways. I admired her for the loving care she provided her mother and loved hearing about her nephews, cousins, and friends about whom she spoke with great affection. I appreciated her wonderfully dry sense of humor and her insightful observations about relationships, current events, and the world in general. I will be forever grateful to have had her as my friend.

I am truly blessed to have had such a long friendship with Janet. She was a great friend and wonderful traveling companion. Memories of Seattle, Boston, Maine and Old Quebec are forever etched in my mind and heart. We shared countless conversations, adventures, laughter, a few sorrows and so much more over 30 plus years. I will forever miss her. Love you Janet!

Janet was a faithful participant in my exercise classes at the Andover Senior Center for years. She was outgoing and caring. Such a joy to have in class. She will surely be missed by many who knew her at the Center.
