Janet Emily Bilbao

Janet Bilbao, a longtime resident of New Rochelle, passed away on Thursday, December 5, 2019. She was born to the late George and Emily Danko on September 6, 1943 in New York, NY.
Janet is survived by her husband, Joseph, to whom she was married for 52 years. She is also survived by her daughter Jennifer Skelley and husband Hal; granddaughters Madeline, Ella and Charlotte; and her siblings Dennis Danko, Jean Desrosiers and Joan Wellbrock.
Janet loved traveling, reading and gardening. But caring for her loved ones was her priority, and she did so with devotion and determination. Thoughtfulness was her guidepost through life. She never forgot a birthday card, sent clippings of newspaper articles to family members, and ensured that the well-being of those around her was of utmost concern.
Janet was a memory-keeper. Photo albums filled her shelves and she kept records of everything, including all of her daughter’s and granddaughters’ accomplishments. She adored Madeline, Ella and Charlotte deeply and the feeling was mutual, which brought her much joy.
Janet approached life with a remarkable, upbeat energy and a lifeforce that was felt by all who knew her. She cherished her loved ones and her friendships with a generous spirit, and she was greatly loved in return.
As an equally devoted pet parent to her felines, the family requests in lieu of flowers, you please make a donation in Janet’s name to Best Friends Animal Society.
A memorial service will take place on Friday, December 13, 2019 at Lloyd Maxcy & Sons Beauchamp Chapel, Inc in New Rochelle, NY from 11am to 1pm.
