Janet was a 'get up and go' lady who founded the 'Tuesday Hummers Card Club' twelve years ago and it still continues to be an active card playing social group. Seven years ago her Red Hat Society involvement developed to the point that she started the 'Red Hot Red Hatters of the Antelope Valley'. She was a member of the Antelope Valley Emblem Club #76. Janet leaves numerous, valued friends who have the memory of a laughing, fun-loving lady who enjoyed life and sharing her time with others. A private family interment will be held.
