I WAS SADDENED TO READ OF JANET'S PASSING. I GRADUATED WITH
HER IN 1953 AND REMEMBER HER AS A GENTLE, FUN PERSON. SHE
MADE QUITE AN IMPACT UPON ALL OF US IN 10TH GRADE BIOLOGY.
SHE ACCEPTED THE CHALLENGE OF TAKING A SNAKE OUT OF THE
CONTAINER! ALTHOUGH I HAVE NOT SEEN IN RECENT YEARS, MY MEMOR
ORY OF HER IS A GOOD ONE..I AM CERTAIN SHE WAS A LOVING
MOTHER,GRANDMOTHER. !
