Janet Ann Davies died on May 6, 2018 at her home, Longhorn Village, in Austin, Texas. She was 82 years old.

She was born in Wilmette, Illinois on January 22, 1936, daughter of Henry J. and Bess Boesch. She has two siblings who survive her, Joan Knapp and Henry J. Boesch, Jr.

Janet graduated from New Trier High School and went on to the University of New Mexico, Class of 1957. She was a Spanish major and also spoke Portugese, Italian, French, and German. Janet and her husband, Morris Davies, Jr., were married on April 27, 1963 and lived for many happy years in Georgetown, Maryland, where they raised their family.
