Janet was a loving Mother, Grandmother, and Great-grandmother. She was known among her family and friends for her homemade cookies, cakes, and pies. Janet also enjoyed being out in her community, spending time volunteering at Langdon Place of Keene was something that brought her great joy. She was able to spend time with the residents and maybe sing a few hymns with them or enjoy a homemade root-beer float. Her compassionate spirit ran over in all aspects of her life, from her love of people to her love of animals, especially her dog, "Scruffy."

Harmon and his wife Gail of Midland Park, NJ, three grandchildren: Kristin Sedgwick and her husband Keith, Michael Harmon and his fiancée Lauren, and Jonathan Harmon and his wife Alyson, her great-grandson: Jakob, her brother: Gerard L.
