  11. Andy Wilson says:

    Janet was such an inspiration to me in so many ways. As a friend she was a delight to share life’s ups and downs with, always ready to listen and share. You could always count on her for a positive outlook and a great sense of humor. As a co-worker she was such a joy to work and always had a dedication and commitment to her clients that was second to none. I always called her “the heart and soul” of Century 21 Landmark Realty because she was always the first to rally for whomever around her needed a helping hand. So many times she coordinated everyone’s efforts to help someone else in a time of need. Even in her battles with cancer she was inspiring, pressing on with unflappable determination and a ceaseless positive attitude. It was one of my life’s blessings to have known and worked with Janet, may she rest in peace.

  14. Margie Dognazzi says:

    Jennifer and Lyndsay, your mom was a very special person as well as a good friend to me. We had many good time together, especially at York Beach. Before I learned how to drive, she took my kids and I to McDonalds for the first time back in the 60’s. Mary Ann and I will miss her more than you know. I just hope I am that strong when my turn comes. Love you much.

    Aunt Margie

  15. Mary Slattery says:

    Janet was my partner at C21 Landmark, years ago. You couldn’t have a better person on your team. Lindsay and Jennifer, your parents left a great legacy.
    When I lost my sons Michael and Patrick last year, I felt I couldn’t, go on. In spite of her great losses and health problems, Janet called me and her advice, courage and kind words keeps me going on a down day. Janet, when my time comes, will you and my boys drag me up there? I need all the help I can get. You are one of the greats. May the angels lead you into paradise. Much love. Rest in peace!

    Dearest Auntie Janet,

    You were the shining light of this family and will be greatly missed by each and every one of us. We will miss seeing your eyes squint as you smile and the unforgettable sound of your laughter that followed. Laughter so catchy we just had to giggle with you.

    You lovingly took charge of family events meant to bring all of us together; cousins, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, co-workers, and neighbors. We all shared special times with you as we grew up in your shadow. We shared baby showers, birthdays, camping trips, special advice for those unpredictable situations, wedding celebrations both near and abroad, holidays, weekends in Laconia, York Beach, ME vacations, parties, home sales, dining out for any and all occasions, watching the Patriots play, communions, Santa Joe’s knee, Elk’s Lodge events, big hugs and kisses, confirmations, christenings, shoulders to cry on, bingo games, caring heartfelt moments, and who can possibly forget singing 12 Days until your head hurt.

    You gave us love unconditionally and made life fun. We will miss you so much!

    Love you much Auntie………Your special Cat-icorn……….Randi

  17. Jennifer McCarron says:

    Mom, You and Dad fostered a love of life and laughter in our home and our hearts. Lindsay and I were so lucky to have you as parents and friends. We will continue to honor your memories by sharing our stories with anyone and everyone. We have so many inside jokes, it will be easy to keep ’em laughing. We will pass on our family traditions to Jack, his brothers and/or sisters, and Brian’s kids and eventual grandkids.

    You are so loved by so many people; we are already overwhelmed with the support of your friends and family. I will miss you everyday but I know you and Dad are with me at every step. I love you, Mom.

    Always in my heart, Jenni
