Janet loved riding her motorcycle with her husband Ron. They went on many motorcycle, canoeing and white water rafting trips. She loved trying new things and being adventurous. She also loved spending time with her daughters and grandchildren who were the light of her life. She loved game night with them and always made them laugh. There was never a dull moment when you were with her. In her spare time, she liked to read and crochet. She was a friend to anyone she met and if you knew her you loved her. She will be missed by many.
