Janet Whitford

Janet (Vredenburgh) Whitford, 76, of Southington passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 14 with her family by her side. She was the beloved wife of Bruce H. Whitford for over 44 years.

Janet’s favorite thing to do was sit on the porch of their cottage in Smith Cove, Niantic to relax, reflect and watch the boats go peacefully by with Bruce.
