Janet is grandmother to four grandsons (including Nicholas LoScalzo residing in Olathe, Kansas), one grand-daughter, and two great-grandchildren.


Janet had a passion for travel which she shared with her daughters logging many miles both at home and abroad. She was also an avid reader and student of history. Books gave Janet many hours of joy in her long and fruitful life.
