Janine was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and loyal friend. She was a witty and funny conversationalist who loved to laugh with family and friends. She created beautiful needlepoints, was an avid reader, and enjoyed playing bridge. Janine was a staunch Democrat and a fighter for the underdogs in life. Despite her illness, nevertheless she persisted. We hold her in our hearts and will forever be grateful for all the love, support, and guidance she shared with us. She will be dearly missed by all.
