Janet had a life well lived. She was an avid skier, tennis player, and played soccer for the RI Spinnakers Woman’s Soccer club. You could always find Janet attending to her flower gardens with her faithful dog Nash not far behind. She loved her Cottage St. neighbors and enjoyed when they’d stop for a smile and conversation. But Janet, loved nothing more than her family. She was so proud of her children and supported all their activities, sports and music events. Janet especially loved spending time playing with her granddaughter, Olivia. They loved going to Rockefeller Park to swing, slide and climb.
