Dear Uncle John, cousins April and Gary, and cousin Brenda, and grandchildren Christopher and Jessica,

It was with great sadness that I received the news of Aunt Janet's passing. I will always remember her as a wonderful aunt, always with a warm and friendly smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes. I always enjoyed her company whether visiting at Grandma Saxon's or at her and Uncle John's home on Charles Street. No matter where, I always looked forward to seeing her at the holidays or at other times. Aunt Janet was one of my favorite aunts and I, along with all the other people whose life she touched and enriched, will sorely miss her. May her soul rest in peace now that her suffering has ended.

Your nephew and cousin,

Jim Zawacki

Sincere sympathy and precious memories. Remembering our “modeling” careers and all of the good times, toting our makeup, jewelry, hats and shoes everywhere we went. Changing clothes in greesy kitchens and dirty restrooms. Laughing hysterically when Janet went down a runway with 2 different shoes on!
Great times. Beautiful lady, inside and out!
Joanne and Diane
