Ocean - JANET COHEN passed away Friday, February 16, 2018, at home at the age of 93.

Janet was born on June 19, 1924 in New York, New York, where she grew up with her parents Ethel and William Shakin and brother, Edward.

After graduation from high school, Janet worked as a secretary for MGM Studios. In 1948, Janet married Abraham E. Cohen and moved to Asbury Park and subsequently to Ocean Township in 1953. Janet returned to the work force in the early 1970's and worked for over twenty years until her retirement from the administrative staff of the Ocean Township Police Department. Janet was an enthusiastic bridge, mah jong and black jack player and enjoyed weekly games with her friends. She traveled the world with Abe, and was an early member of the Temple Beth Torah Sisterhood. Janet was an avid knitter and created numerous items of beauty to keep her warm in our hearts for all times.

Janet is predeceased by her husband of 65 years, Abraham. Surviving are her daughters: Sheila, Linda, and Gloria; niece: Gail; grandchildren: Erika, Maisie, Scott, and Danielle; and great granddaughter Molly.

In the months to come, a memorial service will be held at the BG Doyle Veterans Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the UMDNJ - RWJMS Anatomical Association.
