Janet worked in the banking industry most of her career and was a proud member of the York County Federal Credit Union loan department for over 15-years. Her easy going manner and professionalism was enjoyed by customers and her co-workers. Janet loved animals and owned many rescues that she was proud of. She enjoyed socializing with friends, summer trips to Old Orchard Beach for pier fries, and more than anything else, spending time spoiling her two grandsons.

Janet is preceded in death by her parents John and Irene and her sister Judith. Janet is survived by her husband Dennis, her son Joshua and his wife and her grandsons Conor & Colin.

Janet’s family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Susan, Jennifer, and the other staff members of Kennebunk Rehabilitation Center.
