Janice ”Jan” (Cartier) Barot
HUDSON FALLS – Jan Barot, 80, passed away on Friday, December 30, 2016, at The Pines in Glens Falls, with her son, Ed and his wife, Lori at her side.

Born on August 13, 1936, in Whitehall, she was the daughter of the late Andrew and Beatrice (Betters) Cartier.

She married George Andrew Barot at St. Paul’s Church in Hudson Falls, on October 22, 1955.

Jan graduated from Fort Ann Central School in 1955.  She was a hard worker all her life, having been raised on a dairy farm in Fort Ann.  On the morning of her wedding day, Jan got up at 5:00 a.m., went to the barn to milk 18 cows and still managed to get to the church on time.  She worked as a seamstress at Troy Shirt Guild and Gruber’s Maternity Dress Factory.

Sewing was a lifetime passion, beginning in high school.  Jan was crowned Junior Prom Queen in a beautiful gown that she made herself.   Whenever friends and family needed a seamstress, they knew who to ask. Jan also worked at Sherwood Medical in Argyle for 19 years, retiring in 1998.  It was a short retirement, however, as she soon became an attendant on school buses for special needs children in the Hudson Falls School District.    She loved the children and was known as “Grandma Jan”.

Some hobbies Jan enjoyed were bowling, gardening, yardwork and decorating.

Above all, Jan was a loving wife, mother, mother in law, grandmother and great-grandmother.  She was devoted to her family and friends and was always there when anyone needed her.

In addition to her parents, Jan was predeceased by her youngest child, Brian Paul Barot, who passed away in November 1979 and by her sister, Marlene Scally, who passed away in August 2016.

Survivors include her husband of 61 years, George A. Barot; her daughters, Valerie (Jeff) Zeno and Vanessa Ross; her sons, George Andrew, Jr. (Suzanne) Barot and Edward E. (Lori) Barot; her six grandchildren, Jason (Kate) Zeno, Jeffrey (Anna) Zeno, George A.
