Janet Ruth was born on February 13, 1936 in Elizabeth, NJ. She spent many years in Westfield, and moved to Scotch Plains in 1983. She worked as an Assistant Tax Assessor in Springfield before retiring in 2005. She enjoyed her retirement, residing in sunny Deerfield Beach, Florida with her beloved husband.

She is survived by her husband, Arthur (Mole) Wendland, her son Gary Ingenito, her daughter Donna Ingentito, her daughter Cindy Piancone (Ingenito) and her husband John, and her granddaughter, Francesca Piancone.
Janet’s favorite pastime was spending time at the shore, floating in the ocean. She loved everything blue, animals, celebrating all of the holidays, and savoring a delicious dessert. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family. Above all, was her eternal love for her soulmate, caretaker, and best friend – her husband (mole).
Janet will be deeply missed but never forgotten by her family and friends. Her loving and good-natured soul will be with us every day.
