My favorite photo of Janette in her pretty blue turtleneck sweater, as I had just placedmy Mother's blue round pin on her sweaterin remembrance of my Mom (Albertina Marks), who she took under her wing at St. Charles Health Campus while they were both patients there! She visited her each day, treated her life a Sister, and was a Godsend to the Marks Family, as we children all knew she was in good care and happywith Janetteby her side. Janette earned her Heavenly wings on Earth, so she can now be with Albertina, once again in her Heavenly Home. Thank you Janette for taking care of so many in your Lifetime!!
