Janet attended Alameda Junior High and Highland High School where she was active in drama, choir and French club. She graduated from Highland in 1971.

Janet worked at The Site until the summer of 1982, a couple months before her oldest daughter, Abby, was born. Janet returned to work at Century 21 in late 1983 and worked there until 1985. Her second daughter, Kimberly, was born in 1986. Janet returned to work part-time from home doing property management and medical billing until 1999 when she started working at Citizen’s Community Bank as a Construction Loan Processor. She retired in January 2020.
In her early adulthood, Janet enjoyed ceramics, foosball, bowling and pinochle, which she continued playing all her life. Janet enjoyed her time as an aunt and loved being present for all family events. She was very witty and had a great sense of humor with a tendency to be a little on the dark side. She liked to talk and was an entertaining storyteller. Janet was a wonderful friend. She showed her love through action and was generous in all ways, especially with her time. Janet was a committed mother. She never missed an extra-curricular event her daughters participated in. She enjoyed spoiling her granddaughters and was happy to accommodate their every desire.
