EASTON—-Janet Monroe, 73, passed in peace, the 22nd of September 2019, at her home in Easton, surrounded by her loved ones. She bravely lost her struggle against ALS, that slowly took her ability to move and talk, but did not take away her smile and her ability to laugh.

Janet was born on November 9th, 1945 to parents Thomas and Dorothy (McGuire). Her family was in the military and Janet and her siblings moved frequently and explored different parts of the country. Family was always very important to Janet. She married Kenneth Monroe April 19, 1974 and together they raised 5 children and also lovingly cared for many foster children. Janet was a caretaker to all those who were lucky to be a part of her life. She will be deeply missed.

Janet is survived by her daughters’ Kathleen (Iannelli), Judith (Monroe); her sons’ Tony (Fernandes), Christopher (Starrett); brothers’ Ronald (McGuire), Thomas (McGuire); sister Barbara (Root); sister-in-law Claire (Monroe); grandchildren James (Fernandes), Peter (Iannelli), Jaclyn (Iannelli); best friend Trudy (La Mont) and many nieces and nephews. Daughter Debra (Monroe Southworth) got her wings May 21, 2008.

A private family gathering and burial will be held. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Compassionate Care ALS. Special thanks for the support of friends and family, as well as the Old colony hospice staff.
