Janet was always an adventurer, eager to travel and go on family vacations. She loved discovering new places and experiences. Always putting others before herself, Janet made sure to do what others wanted, spreading joy and consideration wherever she went. She had a passion for reading books and playing tennis, but above all, she cherished her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. A wonderful cook, Janet brought warmth and love into every meal she prepared. She embraced life fully and treasured the people around her.
