  1. Janette you are going to missed! You always had a good story about your life in the Navy or a song to sing with your fellow admins. After working with you for more than 13 years, I can honestly say we had some good times through a lot of chaotic work. I will remember you every Christmas with the wonder ornament gifts you have given throughout the years. You will be forever in be in my memories as one the “Good ones”. Rest in peace my friend. Ann

    I didn’t know Janette, but I remembered her name because it is so beautiful. And from what I have been hearing and reading about her, from our Michigan Medicine colleagues, she has a beautiful soul to match. To her family, may God grant you peace, and ease your pain. May she be in a place of rest, where there is no sighing, no sorrow, and no suffering. May her memory be everlasting.

    1. My deepest sympathy to family of Janette. She and I were high school classmates. I always enjoyed chatting with her. She was always friendly and very pleasant.
