Janet V. Giordano
1952 - 2023
I’m remembering the Janet I met in elementary school. Even then, she had a big, fun-loving personality that drew you to her. We remained friends all through high school enjoying lots of fun times together. Although we went our separate ways after graduation, we reconnected after many years at a St. Edmund reunion in 2002. It was as if no time had passed. She was still the same warm, friendly, vibrant Janet. Very sad to know she’s gone. My condolences to her family and friends.
Here’s a photo from our high school Washington DC trip in spring 1968. From left, Lucille Cannata, Diane Olivo, Janet, Elaine Lund.
As Gasper's cousin We wouldn't see each other often because we lived in different States once they moved to New Jersey however Janet was a type of person that when you sat down and started talking to her she focused in completely. She made you feel comfortable as if you spoke every day. Once in a while you would get a phone call out of the blue and it was Janet Who was just checking up on people when she thought about them.
She was a genuine loving person and she will be missed within our family.
Love to Gasper', Jill and Victoria
Our lives changed twice.
The first time when we first met Janet and Gasper over 40 years ago, and the second time when God called Janet home to his everlasting kingdom. We will forever miss Janet’s intellectual conversations about anything and everything. Most times we didn’t simply hear her talking to us, but we sat back and learned from her. She was smart, she was witty, she was loving to both her friends and family and she will be unbelievably missed by both.
Heaven is rejoicing with Janet’s ascension into Gods paradise. To say we are devastated simply does not adequately describe our sense of loss. She is gone from our sight, but never gone from our thoughts. We will talk to her every night in our evening prayers.
