Lessard, born in Stamford, Connecticut on September 22, 1932. She was a graduate of Sacred Heart Academy, Stamford and the University of Bridgeport where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene and a Master of Science Degree in Counseling. Janet worked in area dental practices, the City of Bridgeport's Division of Dental Health, and for more then 20 years was a faculty member of the Fones School of Dental Hygiene at the University of Bridgeport. She designed and developed the school's community service program, an integral part of the curriculum which gained national recognition and has been replicated by Dental Hygiene Schools throughout the United States. Janet served as the Director of Fones School and was the recipient of many awards in her profession including the Distinguished Alumni Award at the University of Bridgeport.
In retirement, Janet volunteered as a docent at the Barnum Museum, as a fundraiser for the Downtown Cabaret Theater, a member of the Fones School Advisory Board and served on the Board of directors for 18 years at Southwest Community Health Center.

I have the fondest memories of Janet from my childhood. Each award ceremony, or event for the Fones school had her right there. My grandparents, Dr. Paul; P. Liscio and Paulette Liscio adored her and my mother Allida Finnegan as well. My sympathies to her family during this time.

Janet Memoli was a very classy lady and a star in her chosen filed of dental health and medicine. It was my privilege to converse with her many times during the lunches which followed my lectures at Saint Margaret Shrine. Janet was a delightful woman and her life was guided by the high ideals of her Catholic faith. She was a wonderful role model to her children and grandchildren whom she loved very dearly.
My sincere sympathy to the entire family.
