She went on to study at Bowling Green State University.  She worked at Macy's and The Ohio State University but deeply cherished her role as a stay at home mom to be able to raise her children which eventually led to her role as Brownie Troop Leader.  Later in life she enjoyed attending yoga and the many friends she made there.  Janet had a green thumb and love for gardening, she had many beautiful perennial gardens but during her retirement the thing she loved most was spending time with her grandson, Ryan.
