She loved being surrounded by family and friends and enjoyed camping and spending time at the Oregon Coast and Reno. She was known for making many beautiful counted cross stitch pictures, Christmas stockings and was also famous for her potato salad, that was requested at many gatherings.

Later her passion was attending her grandchildren’s sports and school events.

Janet always had her ear to the scanner and in the later years, enjoyed hearing her nephew and sons – each a volunteer fireman – on the air.
