Janet was born & raised in Revere. She was educated in Revere Public Schools and is an alumna of Revere High School, Class of 1964. After graduation, she pursued her dream of becoming a nurse.

Janet married William Stec on December 7, 1969, after a 6-year courtship. The couple resided in Revere and together they began to raise their family. For the past 15 years, she and her husband have lived in Lynn. Janet was known for her flare of interior decorating. She loved making her home beautiful with furnishings and home décor, and also got great pleasure from creating floral arrangements in her spare time. Janet was known by her family as a “collector of many things.”

Janet, above all else, was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She is the devoted wife, just shy of 50 years, to William A. Stec, Sr. of Lynn. Beloved daughter of the late Vincent J. & Lena M. (Cogliano) Gallo. Loving mother of William A. Stec, Jr. & wife Christine of Dedham, Robin L. Trainor & husband Derek J. of Peabody & Ryan J. Stec & wife Tiffany M. of Lynnfield.
