  • Dear Diane, Joe and Mark, I am so sorry to hear of Janet’s passing. Janet was my first friend when I moved to Delaware. We spent so much time together and Janet joined our NHS cheerleading squad as a senior. We also had our first jobs at Burger King in Newark. She was such a good friend to me and will be missed.

  • Dear Joe and Family, We are sorry to hear of the passing of your sister, Janet. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with Janet’s family during this difficult time. I met Janet in X-ray at the Delaware Division in the 70’s. Later Janet and I worked together at the Breast Center and Imaging Services for many years. So many fond memories over the years.

  • My deepest condolences to Janet’s family. I will miss her thoughtfulness. As she never forgot a birthday or event. She always knew just the right gift or sentiment. I will miss her weather alerts. As we nicknamed her Cecily Wufsus. I will miss her random texts to just check-in. Even though they became less frequent. But, I take comfort in knowing you can now breathe easy my friend.
