Janet was raised in Clarks Summit, PA and from an early age was known as a sweet, gentle and caring soul and yet was a fierce, strong and independent woman driven by the desire to help the less fortunate or anyone in need. She was a devoted mother, serving as a cub scout den mother and school volunteer for many years. Later in life she worked for Planned Parenthood of Schenectady for 28-1/2 years. She was an avid reader and adored long walks with her devoted husband. After retirement, Janet continued to volunteer her time at the Baptist Heath, Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Scotia.
Prayer and interment services will be held Wednesday, January 15th at 2:30pm at the Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery in Schuylerville.
