Janet graduated from Sherrill High School in 1948. She was voted prom “football queen” in her junior year of high school. In her senior year she began working as a telephone operator, a position she continued for six years.
Janet lived a simple, frugal life, a life style acquired from her Scottish parents. She was an excellent baker, and her pies and shortbread were exceptional. She made stained glass lampshades and window hangings for a few years, producing many quality pieces. She enjoyed shopping for antiques. Her gardens were a pleasure she enjoyed every summer.
An avid walker for many years, she also enjoyed playing golf as a member of the Gouverneur Country Club. Unfortunately these joys were taken away a few years ago by the onset of Parkinson’s disease.
Janet is survived by her husband Frederick; a brother, Robert MacLeod and his wife Evalyn of DeBary, FL; a sister, Agnes Graves of Columbia, TN; a son, Theodore (Ted) Totten and his wife Jeanice of Gouverneur, NY; and two grandsons, Scott Totten of Huntington, NY and Andrew Totten of Brooklyn, NY.
