    Jeff, I am so sorry for your loss.

    Although I didn’t see Janet often, she was always for me part of the “Sawyer Lake” gang.

    Hello Jeff, My deepest condolences for the loss of your sister and our friend Janet. Jimmy D’Agostino (you went to school together at Huntington and he also had a camp on the lake) also wanted to send his regards. Not too many of the Old Guard left on the Lake. Janet will surely be missed. May she rest in peace. Stay well, JSA

    We were employed at GTE Sylvania in Needham, Ma. I was an engineer. She was the department secretary. We all loved her. My deepest condolences.

    Janet was mother hen to us older guys at GTE and at the same time she was everyone’s kid sister. She was a wonderful lady. She’ll be missed.

    I also worked at Sylvania and Janet had the task of reading my hand writting and correcting my spelling. So sad to hear of her passing. As others have said. She was a wonderful lady.

    Jeff and family,

    Janet was a dear friend who I loved talking to at work. She really cared about people and doing the job the right way. She was deeply caring towards her friends and many people loved her. There are still some people left at General Dynamics who loved her and are saddened by this news.
