Janet R. Smith

1934-2010 HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. Janet R. Smith 75, passed away on Tuesday, July 13, at the Hoosick Falls Health Center where she had resided since 2008. She was the wife of the late John A. Smith. Janet formerly resided in Cambridge, N.Y. and on Fox Hollow Road in Hoosick Falls.

Janet was born on November 9, 1934, in Rutland, Vt., daughter of the late Edward and Madeline Cox Lemay. She attended schools in Rutland and worked as a waitress throughout her life. Janet enjoyed taking care of children, tag sales, shopping and watching television, especially Wheel of Fortune.

Survivors include her daughters, Gretchen Karnes (Ron) of Burlington, Vt., Rebecca Benkoski (Bill) of Hoosick Falls, N.Y., and Maureen Smith of Saratoga, N.Y.; son, Stephen Smith of Michigan; brother, Craig LeMay (Sue) of North Carolina; sisters-in-law, Marion Plenzig of Hoosick Falls and Barb Dougherty of Massena, N.Y.; brothers-in-law, Robert Smith (Mary) of Hoosick Falls and Peter Smith (Mary Lou) of Arizona; 25 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. Janet was predeceased by a brother, Peter LeMay.

After the death of her husband John, Janet met the "Love of her Life", Joe Davidson, of Cambridge, N.Y. Although a piece of Janet died when Joe passed away in 2002, she maintained a very close relationship with Joe's five children and grandchildren. "Gramma Janet" will be dearly missed by the Davidson family.

FUNERAL NOTICE: At Janet's request funeral services will be private and at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are under the care of the MAHAR FUNERAL HOME, 43 Main Street in Hoosick Falls.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Hoosick Falls Health Center through the funeral home.

The family would like to thank Dr. Marcus Martinez and the nurses and staff at the Hoosick Falls Health Center for all their loving care and kindness shown to Janet during her last two years. Even on her "Grouchiest Day" she loved them all.
