After Janet’s retirement, she volunteered for over 18 years at QUEST Elementary School in Hilton, NY and was known as Grandma by all. “Grandma” brought much love and joy to the children at QUEST. She treated each child as if they were her own grandchildren and taught them many lessons that they hold dear even to this day. She looked forward to school everyday to be with her “grandchildren” and also had a bright smile and warm heart for each one. She will be deeply missed, and forever be in our hearts.
