Janette worked many jobs during her lifetime. Janette started out working for Riley Clay Insurance Company, she was Office Managers for JH Cook & Sons, Tri County Mental Health and Sta Clean Diffuser Company. She later went into sales with Sta Clean Diffuser Company selling air pollution equipment. Janette then worked for Albarrie Environmental out of Lewiston Maine. She then started her own company selling air pollution equipment to major manufacturing plants all over the US. One of her prized customers was the US Navy selling them air filtration equipment for nuclear submarines. Janette was also part owner of Circle Drive Mobile Home Village.
Janette also had done some product modeling and her picture appeared in trade magazines all over the world.
Janette loved her family time, especially shopping with her daughter Talitha and playing cards with her son Mike and his family. Janette also loved dancing, scrapbooking, playing card games and traveling. She had been on 30 cruises. A hard battle with tonsil cancer in 2005 stopped her from cruising so she decided that this Country had plenty to see so she and her husband Paul loaded up her medical equipment and took off in their motor home to see the US. They crossed the country 3 times, visited most of the National Parks, traveled Alaska, Canada, Maine and nested for 6 winters at Riverbend Motor Coach Resort in Labelle, Fl. In their travels they also attended Gospel music concerts whenever possible.
Complications from the tonsil cancer manifested in 2015 and she became bedridden and her husband Paul became her full-time caregiver.
The family would particularly like to thank Dr. Myron Goodman, his wife Mary, his staff Ashley and Dianna for their loving and dedicated care.
