Water Ski Highlights:
Janet raised 4 children, Johnny, a Junior Boys National Jumping champion, Gary,Vicky, and Maura, all skiers as well. Janet died in 1996.
As shown by her involvement with waterskiing from the local level with a water ski school in the 1950’s to her many volunteer positions on the regional and national level, and from writing to judging, Janet surely enjoyed the sport of water skiing and the many people she came in contact with. In her later years after she became less involved in the sport, she would faithfully show up at Island lake for the GMO and the State Championships to judge and visit with people she knew and to once again see the action.
