            Born and raised in Mattapoisett, the daughter of the late Chester G. and Beatrice B. (Vossahlik) Dexter, she lived in West Wareham for most of her life.

            Janet was formerly employed as a licensed practical nurse and respiratory therapist at Tobey Hospital for 21 years. She was also a certified emergency medical technician.

They all were a source of great pride and joy.
