Guided in all things by her love of God and family, Janet's life of service blossomed. She was among the first women Eucharistic ministers and lay lectors at St. Mary Magdalen Parish, a Girl Scout leader, a volunteer for the American Cancer Society, a member of the parish Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a sponsor and team member of RCIA and a champion of ecumenical affairs through Church Women United, the Delmarva Ecumenical Council and the Diocese of Wilmington Pastoral Council.
