She was active in the Chamber of Commerce and volunteered every year to assist in cutting hair at the Happy Harbor Methodist Home and at the Boys & Girls Harbor. Janet enjoyed traveling and loved her trips to Greece and Rome with Sammy. She always looked forward to their annual trip to the Frio River where they could stay at Mager’s River Camp in Concan, Texas. Janet believed strongly in giving back to her community and supported 100 Club, all things law enforcement, and the food pantry at First Baptist Church in La Porte.
