Born and raised in the “Ten Hills” section of Somerville, Janet was a daughter of the late Harold Drake and Agnes (Coviello) Drake Aaronian.  Educated in Somerville, Janet was a 1960 graduate of Somerville High School.

Janet met her beloved husband Ed, while roller skating at the Bal-A-roue Skating facility one evening with friends.   They spent many happy hours there skating and enjoying each others company and in 1964 they married.

In 1967,  they nestled in to the West Side of Woburn where they made their lovely home. Traveling throughout the years was always a favorite.  Hawaii was the most favorite of all, having visited there quite often. Throughout their fifty two years of marriage they shared a wonderful friendship, and a devotion to each other that honestly made them inseparable, truly soulmates to the end.

For over 42 years Janet worked for the US Government as part of the Geological Survey and General Services Administrator. She was an exceptional writer, capturing all the insightful material necessary to keep the vast journals full of all necessary information, thoroughly enjoying it all.
