Janet Dressler Lister died peacefully on July 23 at Premier Place in Naples, Florida. She was born on November 14, 1923 to Walter and Beatrice Dressler in Cleveland, Ohio and was pre-deceased by her husband, Charles Allan Lister, with whom she shared a wonderful marriage of 66 years.

Janet is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law Joan (Steve Fogel) of Williamstown, MA, Judy (Chris Roland) of Hancock, NH, her son Robert of Orlando, FL and her grandchildren William Fogel (Becky Gallagher), Nicholas Fogel (Kara McLaughlin), Woodbury Roland and Carlin Roland. She is also survived by her adored brother, David Dressler, of Potomac, MD.

Always a dedicated and capable student, Jan graduated from Shaker Heights High School and then received a BA in English from Wellesley College. She was devoted to her family and dedicated herself to creating homes in Shaker Heights, OH, Los Altos and Claremont, CA, and Ridgewood, NJ. She and her husband also lived in Columbia, SC before sharing many good years in Naples, Florida and at Eastman in Grantham, NH. Throughout her life, she was an avid reader, accomplished bridge player, creative cook and adept seamstress and knitter. She also developed and maintained good friendships across the many locations of her homes.

In Naples, Jan was a volunteer at Naples Community Hospital, a member of the American Association of University Women, and a member of the Naples Council on World Affairs. She also belonged to the Wellesley Club of Naples and served as a past president.  For the final years of her life, she lived at The Glenview where she held deep gratitude for those who supported her when she needed it the most - Dr. Juan Ricardo and the entire staff at The Glenview/Premier Place and her AVOW Hospice team.
