She worked for a year at the Victoria County office before her marriage. After marriage she followed her husband to his various workplaces in New Brunswick for six years before settling in Fredericton.
Janette enjoyed traveling by camper around most of North America from California to Newfoundland and Alaska to Nova Scotia and all points in between. She loved the family cottage at Two Brooks on the Tobique that she helped to build and finish. She enjoyed snowmobiling on her own machine hundreds of miles on the York County and Tobique trails. Janette enjoyed hobbies and crafts including gardening, knitting, quilting, reading, and her beloved pets. She loved her family most of all.
The family wishes to thank all the management and staff of the Birch Grove section of York Care Home for their kindness and care of Janette during the last 2 years and 9 months that she spent with you.
