They lived in California right by the ocean, Florida, and Pennsylvania where they raised their family of six. She was a hard worker and held several different jobs thru the years but the most important was mother and wife. Janet was a devoted mom to her children, always making sure they were well taken care of and raised with morals and good values. She lived by her words and was an example to her children of what a mother and wife should be. She had a heart of gold and would give you whatever she had. One of her greatest blessing was her family and spending time with them.
