Our family is beyond sad to hear of Janean’s passing. Janean was an amazing mother and an amazing friend. She always though of everyone else first. She was the kindest person I have ever met. She was brave, a fighter and lived each moment to the fullest. She was always positive even when things were bad. Janean was a giver and it is rare to find someone in this world as kind and loving as Janean. We loved her dearly and we love your family. Her memory will always be alive in us.

We were sad when we learned that Janean passed. I had just read on Mike’s FB post Janean was in the hospital and you were pleased with the plan of treatment. Janean was truly a shining light. You just needed to look at her and you could feel and see the love and caring she had for her family. G-d now has an angel to watch over you.

Some things are beyond sad. The entire Adelstein clan is a joy to be with, a site to admire, and the exemplar of kindness and decency. Janean was as sweet and beautiful as they come. We have wonderful memories of the three kids' B'nai Mitzvot. Jacob, Anna, Josh - you are the offspring of a truly wonderful lady and mother. Mike, we know you treasured every day. Her memory will be for a blessing for ALL of us and may Janean rest in peace.
