OBRIEN, Janet Huber

O'BRIEN - Janet Huber Of Durham, NC, died peacefully Monday, December 13, at the age of 89. The daughter of William and Alma Huber of Buffalo, Janet attended Bennett High, UB (Sigma Kappa sorority), and Buffalo State College. She married Edward T. O'Brien Jr. in 1950, and moved to Kenmore with Ed's mother, Clara, to raise their family. Ed's law practice grew until he suffered a stroke in 1959. Janet then began a career teaching at Betsy Ross School until her retirement in 1980. When Ed died in 1977, Janet again was the rudder of the family as her children finished school, married and began careers. She maintained her home on McKinley Ave and her many friendships with neighbors, the Garden Club, League of Women Voters, PEO Sisterhood, and Westminster Church Choir until moving to Durham, NC in 2004. She is survived by her daughter, Jan O'Brien Jr. and Jan's husband Craig Hartman of Corte Madera, CA, Doug O'Brien and wife Jean E. Taylor of Brooklyn, NY, and E. Tim O'Brien III and wife Elizabeth of Durham. Please look up and search for Janet to read more. She was a gentle, lively soul, a wonderful mother and friend, and we will miss her.
