Janet was loved by all who knew her. She was a loving and caring person, always willing to help those in need. She put others needs before hers. She was definitely the sunshine on many people's lives. Lynn Marie Daaboul, a niece, wrote the following special tribute to Janet:

"Like wild horses, her spirit was a fierce force of nature, bestowing a heart as radiantly big and bright as the sun. A thousand "I Love You's" was simply never too much for a woman who just couldn't say it enough. It was evident that her mother loved her most, just as mothers do. Her siblings shared a bond with her, like the beauty of a perfect storm, unbreakably strong and everlastingly long. Her nieces and nephews were the children she never had, recipients to all the maternal love she never hesitated to offer. But mainly and most importantly, the greatest love of all was shared between her best friend and husband, the amazing man that never let her fall".
