Janet Hurley Jamieson of East Granby, formerly of East Windsor, passed away on November 29, 2017, after a lengthy illness, in the loving care of her family. She endured her illness with courage and grace. Janet was 79.
She was born in Manchester Center, Vermont to the late Roger B. and Helen (Adams) Hurley. After her marriage to James T. Jamieson, she moved to East Windsor, Connecticut and raised their family. Following her husband’s retirement, she maintained homes in Tangerine, Florida and in Tinmouth, Vermont. A passionate music lover, Janet was a member of numerous bands, choirs, chorale groups and bell choirs. She also loved volunteering and was the director of the Senior Citizen’s Choir in East Windsor for many years. Jan also was quite a game enthusiast and was likely to be found playing Scrabble, card games or Words with Friends. She adored her winter visits to Florida, but always said her favorite place to be was at her lake home in Vermont.
