My mother Marjorie Maker Michel who lives with me made a point today of taking time to remember Janet and her life to me after she read about Janet's passing in the Globe. They were old Dover school mates and fond friends. I remember Janet also as a friend of Dover and all that knew her. We send our sympathies.

Janet was a dear, dear friend to many, and the world will be a much less interesting place with her now gone. Anyone thinking she was a little old lady who never much left Dover, did not know JanetHer stories and connections to the much larger world outside of her little town were amazing.....her lifetime contacts included an amazing array of characters, from almost everyone who frequented the Dover Post Office (it could take her 2 hours to get home from getting the mail), to people in almost every walk of life- not to mention world famous athletes- (think Boston hockey), Senators, Antarctic explorers, Medal of Honor recipients, Admiralsthe list goes onand on She could pick up the phone and reach the White House Chief of Staff- Assistant to the President of the United States- on his cell phone! All on the same day that she herded her flock of wild turkeys across busy Centre Street, much to the consternation of some drivers, and the sheer enjoyment of most. TV shows were done about her turkey exploits. They somehow knew she would protect them and actually came up on her porch to be escorted across the street when they had their babies, too small to fly...She lived in the same house that her parents built, every day of her life, and never missed the rest of the world.
Her addiction to all things political was untenable, and, our country would be a better place if more people had her fascination and respect for our democratic process, our country's basic founding tenets, and her ability to put history in perspective, and her tolerance for others with alternative opinions.
She was the epitome of discretion. Faithful to her friends, and kind and thoughtful to all.
I will forever miss our frequent dinners with her chatting about all these wonderful experiences and people. Her advice and counsel are forever cherished and I will miss her every day- forever.

I knew Janet through the Wider family in Dover where Janet used to cross her band of turkey's so they could gather in her yard. I knew Janet for many years and often thought that we might be distant relatives, having the same Scottish heritage and a last name that was in my family tree. She was a lively, funny , caring and an interesting person who the world will be a sadder place without.

Gail Hamilton and Alexander Wider.
