Janet had attended Smithville High School through the 11th grade. She worked at Freeman Hospital for over 15 years as a sterilization tech. Janet loved puzzles, crosswords, Peggle, and Mystery PI. She loved listening to music – anything 50s and 60s. If the music was blaring, that meant she was cleaning and you better leave her alone.
