Janet attended Rosehill Country School through the 8th grade. She graduated from Griswold High School with the class of 1953. On May 1, 1953, she was united in marriage to Boyd W.

Janet had a very green thumb; her plants and flowers were beautiful. After retiring from the farm, Janet and Boyd moved to Cumberland. Boyd passed away November 29, 2009, and Janet continued to make her home in Cumberland until the time of her death.
