Janet was happiest when in the company of her family and friends. Her door was always open for a chat with a friend, birthday get togethers and holiday celebrations. Her favorite pastimes were sitting around a campfire on one of their countless camping trips, sitting on the porch enjoying a glass of wine while watching a Cubs or Blackhawks game or cheering on her grandkids on the sidelines of their sporting events.
Janet loved her garden and cherished her family recipes which she shared so generously with everyone.
Janet’s greatest joy was being married to her husband, Bill, for 57 years. The love they shared will live on forever through their children and grandchildren.
