Janet Evelyn Battaglia was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ with her beloved siblings Eddie, Bob and Elaine. She met Carmine (Hank) Battaglia and they married in 1951. Janet and Hank moved to Wyckoff in 1960 and had four children-- Robert (Kathleen), Bruce (Renee), Richard (Nancy) and Donna (Michael) Brady. She was blessed with many grandchildren-- Michael (Natale), James (Lyndsey), Laura (John), Daniel (Christa), Joshua (Karen), Vincent, Evan, Mia (Luke), Ian (Nicole) and John-- and great grandchildren-- William, Doug, Charlotte, Hank, Lena, Rowan, Cecilia, Theodore, Tucker, Gideon, Penelope and Brady. Janet also loved her dog, Talullah. Her family was her greatest happiness.
Janet worked in advertising for many years and made lifelong friends. She later travelled for work weekly to Stockbridge, MA where she and Hank enjoyed the area-- he on the golf course and Janet in the arts. They were members of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and enjoyed bringing family and friends to private openings at the museum. Hank passed away 16 years ago. They enjoyed traveling and were members of the North Jersey Cycling Club. She loved him and his extended Italian family, who she still met with for lunch often.
Janet loved books. She was always encouraging others to read her favorites of the moment. She ran the Wyckoff Reformed Church book sale for many years. She was involved in numerous book groups. She loved poetry and enjoyed playing word games, namely Wordle and Waffle, and recruited fellow players often. Janet helped with the Wyckoff Reformed Church Ladies Aid and had many dear friends of all ages at the church. She travelled on a number of mission trips with the church’s youth group. She loved sharing stories from them. The Wyckoff YMCA was a wonderful place for Janet to make more friends. She attended weekly movies, played bridge and participated in the Bulls and Bears investment group. Janet was a go-getter who refused to slow down.
Janet was deeply loved by her family and many friends and will be missed dearly. There will be a Celebration of Life at the Wyckoff Reformed Church on Saturday, February 17th at 11am.
