It is with much sadness that I learned of Janet's death. Janet and I have known and worked together
(until our retirements) for several years. As past President of the Saratoga Chapter of New York StateWide Senior Action Council, I know how active Janet was in the chapter and she was, at the time of her death, serving as Vice President of the Chapter. Her dedication to serving Seniors was Janet's passion and it continued into her retirement. Janet will be deeply missed!
Love and prayers,
Carolyn Crawmer
