Obituary of Janet Louise Gregory

Janet Horvath Gregory, 76, passed away January 22, 2021, in the home she loved so dearly, after a long illness surrounded by her family.

Born and raised in the town of Tottenville, Staten Island, New York, Janet (known to so many as Janie) was a loving wife and mother, who lived life passionately and loved her family fiercely.  Her greatest joy in life were her five granddaughters, whom she loved deeply.

Janet began her career in New York City at Irving Trust and worked at Staten Island University Hospital and Hoenig & Company, both in New York. Moving to New Jersey in 1986, she co-owned and operated AlphaGraphics in New Brunswick, with her husband, David and her son, Donald.  Janet retired in 2011 after she enjoyed 10 years working at Watermark Group in Princeton. 

Her life was filled with family celebrations, travel, her many creative activities and countless blessings. Through it all, Janet worked hard, laughed loud, and loved with all of her being.  She loved to dance, tell stories, and spend time with her family, especially her five granddaughters who illuminated her life.  A dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother, she will be missed immensely by her family and many friends.

Janet was pre-deceased and is now reunited with her mother and father, Paul and Mary Horvath and her two brothers, Brian and Paul Horvath.  She is survived by her husband of 34 years, David; her son Donald and daughter-in-law Dorothy; her daughter Traci and son-in-law Michael; and her beloved five granddaughters, Jessie, Emma, Julia, Jillie and Hannah.

Due to the pandemic, an outdoor memorial service will be held on May 16, 11:00 a.m. at The Mountain Lakes House in Princeton. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Janet’s name to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
