Janet A. Windhausen, 85, of Bedford, died July 3, 2018, at Catholic Medical Center, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born in Cambridge, MA on December 3, 1932, the daughter of Walter and Marion (Peers) Flewelling. Janet was a graduate of Belmont High School, Belmont, MA, and earned her BS from Simmons College in 1954.

Janet was an educator for nearly 25 years and specialized in business studies. She was a respected teacher and member of the Trinity High School Faculty for over a decade. She also taught at the Youth Development Center for ten years, and later at Newfound High School.

She married her husband John D. Windhausen in Belmont, MA in 1957.

During their marriage, John and Jan raised five children and traveled extensively to Europe, Russia, China and throughout the U.S. They were happily married and devoted to each other for 49 years until John's passing in 2006. Jan then moved to Riverwalk in Bedford, NH where she made many friends and served on the Board of Directors and as Chair of the Activity Committee.
