Later she also lost her son Jeff at the age of 26 in the same manner. Janet opened what would be known and loved by many as Jans Gifts in Seaside. Home dcor was a passion of hers and was the vehicle that allowed her to establish lifelong relationships with those in her community. After she retired she hit the open road, another of her passions, and traveled long distances with her motor home - car in tow. She lived on the Mill Pond in Astoria with her dog Peaches for many years where she loved to watch the ships and grow her flower garden. She later moved to Clatsop Retirement Village. Her last residence was at the Clatsop Memory Care facility in Warrenton, Oregon where she passed away at the age of 83.
