She owned her own floral shop for a few years while the couple made their home in California. Janet was also a homemaker, as the family moved numerous times due to David’s service. She was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Sartell. Janet was very artistic and loved to paint, crafting, and arrange flowers. She was feisty, fun and loved to entertain and cook food to share around the holidays. Janet liked to volunteer her time in her community, and she belonged to many clubs over the years, as she was very social.
