Obituary of Janet C. Duell
CHESTERTOWN: Janet Duell, 75, of Chestertown, NY, daughter of the late Hewlett Cornwell and late Barbara Douglas (Reed), passed away on Sunday, June 19, 2022 at Glens Falls Hospital.
Janet came into this world on October 22, 1946 in Ticonderoga, NY. She was born with the true Adirondacker woman spirit; a strong, sassy, independent, and outspoken woman who told it like it was. Jan married Randy L. Duell 27 years ago after meeting at Ridin-Hy Ranch and dancing the night away. She was a generous and loving role model for the many of people that called her Mom (everyone). She was considered a second Mom too many, affectionately known as “everyone’s Mom”. Jan was also a very talented artist, and in life a general guru. If you had a question, she’d have the answer. Her biggest love and passion in life was her family, which just up until recently spanned 5 generations. Jan will be forever remembered as the truly unique, honest, talented, and fiercely loving individual she was.
Survivors who will be remembering her is her son Wayne (Tammy) Bukovinsky of North River; daughter Theresa (Paul) Hicks of (Brant Lake); stepdaughters Kelly (Chris) Barker of Garnet Lake, Katie Bennett and her partner Stephen, Lynn Davis of Chestertown; sisters Ann (Joe) O’Connor of NY and Kim (Chuck) Klippel of Indiana; sister-in-law Rowena McKinstry of Schroon Lake; grandchildren Erika Emlaw, Brian Bukovinsky, Paddrick Hicks, Courtney and Brittney Davis and Daegan and Ryland Brothers; great grandchildren Gabe, Ava, Eamon, Olivia, Lydia and Ella; many many nieces, nephews and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to North Country Hardship Fund.
