- Janet Jacobs
Janet — intrepid adventuress, tugboat captain, small plane pilot, gourmet caterer, fashion plate, flower gardener, interior decorator, antique collector, art appreciator, horseback rider, Chessie dog trainer, practiced teller of funny, true stories and ever so much more — has cast off the mooring lines after a blessedly brief tangle with cancer, with her son Zachary and Anita Lazar together by her side in Boston.
Janet totally adored grandchildren Adriana and Nico and always will, and her special drawer packed with super fun gifts is forever full of her magic for both of you, from the other side of the great water. Every time you enjoy a good laugh, she’ll be laughing with you. Anytime you need encouragement, she’ll be rooting for you!
Janet arrived as a twin, the eldest daughter in a family of nine sibs, thanks to Mike and Janet Jacobs (formerly of Jericho Center, Vt.). She graced Burlington periodically over the years with her work for the Mozart Festival, as social coordinator for Ina Coors of the University of Vermont and as island caretaker.
Janet is much missed by us all, both here and in her home ports of Boston; Scottsdale, Ariz.; and St Thomas, USVI. We wish Janet a sincere bon voyage with full, warm and grateful hearts!
