Daughter of Mary and Joseph Cieslak, sister of Joseph J. Cieslak.

Janey enjoyed astrology, cooking, writing and music. She worked as a keypunch operator for the State of Pennsylvania before obtaining her cosmetology license in April 1970. She dreamed of opening her own salon and was in the process of doing so at the time of her death. She was engaged to a man named Fran; if she had lived, they would have married in 1971.

A month before her death, she was in her cousin's wedding party. She loved her bridesmaid dress so much that she was buried in it. It is the pink dress she is wearing in one of the pictures to the right.

Cause of Death: Lupus

THANK YOU, White Light, for adding my dear Aunt to one of your virtual cemeteries, and to everyone who is leaving flowers for her.
