Janet was Catholic by faith and a member of St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Perryopolis.

She is survived by her sisters Barbara McArdle and Patricia Molchan several nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews.

Janet will always be remembered as one who served others.  She worked at Sweeneys’s Restaurant, The Parish House Personal Care Home and St. John’s Rectory where she was a cook, housekeeper and “Laundry Lady”.  She made many special friends over the years and loved to tell stories and reminisce about the things she learned, the housekeeping advice she gave, and the memories she made.  She felt lucky to be able to travel occasionally with friends and family and especially enjoyed a trip to Disney World with Nephew Doug, Niece Angie and their children Sarah, Nicholas , Katie, Michael and Cassidy.  When she retired she still continued to keep the family home with her brother and sister but found most joy in attending plays, sporting events, family picnics and holiday dinners with family.  Later, when her health and mobility declined she love to listen to polkas on the radio, watch the Pirates on TV and partake in the  occasional afternoon beer.

In 2019 Janet moved to TLC Personal Care home in West Newton, PA there she continued to make friends with the residents, staff , and visitors. The family would like to thank all the friends she made at TLC especially Stephanie, Rob and the entire staff at TLC. We are truly grateful for the love and care you gave to Janet.
