Janet was a long-time resident of Mottville, NY. She was raised there and went on to raise her own five children and two of her grandchildren there. She worked in the food and retail industry for her whole life. She was a member of St. Andrews Methodist church in Mottville.
Janet loved spending her time in the sun tending to her gardens. She kept an “open door” at her home where she often had family and friends visiting. She would welcome anyone and insisted they stay for “supper”. She loved to travel and attended many trips with her senior citizens group which she enjoyed very much. Above all, Janet loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Sitting and watching the family at their many gatherings made her happiest.
Janet was predeceased by her son, Daniel Crane, a daughter Valerie Ware, a grandson Joshua Ware, her son in law Gary Sweet, 2 sisters Helen (Dave) Shepherd and Betty (Bob) Ryan.
Janet is survived by her daughters Teresa Crane (Mottville), Wanda Sweet (Mottville) and Kim (James) Oberlender (Camillus), 10 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, a sister Joan (Ed) Quigley (Elbridge) and several nieces and nephews.
