Janet Walsh, age 64 of Weymouth passed away on April 8, 2020. Janet was raised in Weymouth and graduated from Weymouth High School. She was very special to many people. Janet had a magnetic personality that drew in friends from all walks of life. She had an uncanny ability to meet people everywhere. She had an empathetic, generous nature and always went out of her way to help anyone in need. Janet loved music, the guitar, writing, and debating issues with her sharp wit and humor. She approached all of life’s challenges with that same sense of humor and optimistic outlook.
Janet was a strong woman who fought courageously in her battle with serious illness and physical disabilities. Yet she was often a pillar of strength for those around her. She will be greatly missed.
