Janet grew up a dancer and opened a dance studio in Weymouth with E. Virginia Williams, founder of the Boston Ballet. She was a beautiful knitter who spent many years contributing her time and knitting to the St. Francis Xavier holiday bazaars. She loved to read, play scrabble, and do crosswords online. She was known for her wonderful cooking, baking, and feeding everyone! Her kindness made those who knew her feel special and loved. No wonder her family nickname was Auntie Honey.
