Janine Silverbrook Obituary
September 18, 1925 - November 3, 2017 Our beloved mother and grandmother Janine has passed away at the age of 92, just over 2 weeks after her beloved husband, Paul. The beautiful young Parisian met her handsome American Army private while he was stationed in Paris during World War II. Their love was one for the ages. Inseparable from their very first day together, they were to remain inseparable and madly in love the rest of their lives. Janine left her native France to marry Paul and lived with him first in Philadelphia, then in New York, and finally in Los Angeles to be near their only child, Corinne, and her family. A gifted French teacher, Janine was passionate about her career until her retirement. Until her stroke 30 years ago, Janine ("Janot") was equally passionate about reading and writing, and traveled extensively with her family to France and other countries. In a limited way, she was able to continue some of her travels since then, always hand-in-hand with Paul. Janine had a playful sense of humor, even when she could no longer speak, and would always have a smile and a kiss for all those around her. She had a soft and compassionate heart of gold for all those less fortunate, for children, and for animals¿it would not take much to make her tear up in empathy. Although her heart was still in France, her love was here with "Paulie", her husband of over 70 years, and her daughter and her family. We all know that although Janine had many medical issues, she finally passed away from a broken heart¿.to be together with the love of her life eternally. Janine is survived by her daughter, Corinne Carlson; her son-in-law, Jim; and her two grandchildren Jesse and Alexandra. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Stroke Foundation or the .
