She retired from SuperValu Inc. Janet loved dogs. She believed strongly in adopting rescue dogs, and was very proud of the fact that she trained her dog, Glorie Mae, as a therapy dog. She enjoyed crocheting and was active in the organization “Warm Up America” which crochets afghans for veterans. She loved to fish and enjoyed spending time at Spider Lake, MN, which she called her paradise on earth. She enjoyed going to auctions in that never ending search for the next treasure.
