[PUBLISHER’S NOTEÂ â Â We at Pasadena Now are shocked and saddened at Janette’s passing. She was a joy to know. Janette always had a twinkle in her eye and a devilishly witty remark to unleash. I shared a common Scottish ancestry with her, and she loved to talk about her family in her beloved homeland. We miss her sorely, already. Â James Macpherson]
