Janet (Grueter) Williamson, 66, of Manchester died Wednesday, November 7, 2012 surrounded by her loving family after a courageous 11 month battle with lung cancer.

She was born in Belmont, Mass., January 21, 1946, the daughter of Carroll and Grace (Connors) Grueter. She moved to the Manchester area at a young age and graduated from St. Joseph High School for Girls. She earned her associate's degree from NH College.

As a 1988 graduate of the very first Institute on Disability NH Leadership Series, Janet led the way ensuring that individuals with disabilities were welcomed and valued as respected, contributing members of their communities. She then worked with the Leadership Series for over 20 years as a mentor, teacher, trainer, and leader in the design of self-directed services and supports and the creation of communities that welcome everyone. She was well known for inspiring families when she and her son Jeff presented the topic of "The Good Life" and as a result hundreds of families throughout New Hampshire credit Janet for opening their minds to new possibilities and creating a good life for New Hampshire citizens with disabilities and their families. A recent graduate of the Series said "Janet's spirit will live on in all of us, as she helped mold us into the leaders that we are today-to carry on for her."

She was a past board member of the Moore Center and volunteered much of her time with the Special Olympics.

Janet loved to spend time with her family and many friends at the beach and will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sister who will be dearly missed.

She was predeceased by her sister Sally Martel.

Burial at the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery.
