In memory of
Janet (Herbert) Cox
Janet Herbert Cox, 91 KENNEBUNK - Janet Herbert Cox died peacefully at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough on Feb. 12, 2017, after a brief illness. She was born Oct. 1, 1925, in Philadelphia, the daughter of Charles and Catherine (Hoffman) Herbert. Janet graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1947 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism. After graduation, she worked at the N.W. Ayer & Sons advertising agency in Philadelphia and was a supervisor in the business production department. Janet and her parents vacationed each summer at the Arlington Hotel in Kennebunkport. It was there she met her husband, David S. Cox, from Montreal, who also vacationed at the Arlington with his parents. They were married in 1956 and moved to Springfield, Massachusetts. David's career in the chemical industry would move them to Westport, Connecticut; Martinsville, New Jersey; and final-ly to Cupertino, California, before retiring to Kennebunk in 1987. Janet enjoyed spending time with elderly shut-ins, which she did as a volunteer for "Friendly Visiting" in California. Janet had many lifelong friends from grade school, The Arlington Hotel, Penn, and N.W. Ayer, as well as neighbors from the various towns in which she lived, with whom she continually kept in touch. Janet was predeceased by her husband, David. She is survived by her son Robert, and his wife Claudia, of Basking Ridge, N.J.; her daughter Elizabeth, of Kennebunk; and her two wonderful granddaughters, Madeline and Julia, of Basking Ridge.
