Janet enjoyed sewing, crocheting, music, collecting elephants, and the unique art of decoupage. She also worked in the secretarial field for many years.
Janet developed a love for Jehovah at an early age, learning the truth from her mother and grandmother. This love moved her at the age of 12 to make a personal dedication to Jehovah and get baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on May 13, 1951. She was a faithful servant of Jehovah for 72 years. Janet loved the ministry and spent close to 40 years serving as a regular pioneer. During this time, she was able to help many come to know Jehovah and dedicate their lives to him. While living in New York Janet attended the Bedford, Fort Green, and Merrick congregations. Janet and Richard moved from New York to Georgia in 1998 and attended the North Norcross and South Duluth congregations.
Her strength, style, determination, faithfulness, and love for the ministry and her family are among the many attributes that her family and others will fondly remember her for.
