Janice Pinkham Emmons, December 15, 1929-January 22, 2021. Our beloved Jan; daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, friend, hostess extraordinaire, dog lover, gardener, third generation A.M.C. Three Mile Island camper and overall tour de force has left us peacefully after a brief illness under the wonderful care of her daughter, Liz. She was the wife of George Beale Emmons for 64 years.
Her parents, Jan and cliff Pinkham, met during the Great Depression and married with $50 and a car to their name. Jan was born in Chicago and grew up at Highfields, her parent’s farm and orchard in Groton, MA with her brother, Bill.
Jan’s life might best be described as a never-ending series of adventures and escapades full of grit and glamour. Tomboy, Acorn Street party house organizer, RCA career girl in New York City doing business with the likes of Elvis Presley and creating wonderful homes, gardens and communities in Tuxedo Park, NY, South Salem, NY and Monterey, MA. Her beauty, sense of humor, boundless love for her family and passion for a dazzling array of interests will live on forever in our hearts.
She leaves behind her husband George, brother and sister-in-law Bill and Sue Pinkham, daughters and sons-in-law Alice and Tim Maciejowski and Liz and Mike Mulroy and best of all, four highly-prized grandsons: Ames Colt, John Connery, Robin Connery and Alex Colt.
Jan will be returning to Three Mile Island on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH. Please raise a toast in her honor.
