Janie Lu (Daggett) Remacle
June 4, 1948 ~ January 28, 2024 (age 75) 75 Years Old
Janie Lu Remacle (Daggett), died Sunday, January 28, 2024, surrounded by those who loved her the most at Southeast Georgia Health Systems in Brunswick, Georgia, after a short illness. Janie was the first of three children born to Ivy Lu Daggett (Clark) and Leon Chaffee Daggett on June 4, 1948, in Warsaw, New York. Janie was the very proud sibling to her younger sister Rebecca (Becky) DeSmith and brother Harry Daggett, who will carry on her legacy of love along with their families which includes lots of children, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren, all who adored “Aunt Janie”, as she was fondly known to her family. In addition to “Aunt Janie’s” genetic family, she had a family of many others, most especially and importantly Carol Washburn, now of Jesup, Georgia, and Carol’s siblings Michael and Douglas Washburn. Carol would eventually care for both Janie and her husband Frank in the last days and months of their lives.
Janie lived in Canandaigua, New York for most of her life. She and her late husband Frank Remacle, Sr. of New Hampshire, spent their lives dedicated to their careers and their family. Janie and Frank were both successful business owners, supporting their customers, friends, and families alike. “Janie’s Beauty Shop” not only served as a source of pride and sustenance for Janie, but it was a place many frequented and felt happy, safe, and loved. From first hair cuts to perms to colors of all sorts, Janie could make anyone feel and look beautiful, not just because of her professional training, but because of her heart of gold. You could hear laughter in her shop - which was truly an extension of her home - from the moment it opened until the day she closed her doors and retired several years ago.
Janie was also a devoted member of Zion Episcopal Church in Palmyra, New York. Finding God later on in her life, Janie joined this faith family and loved them and God deeply, just as she loved everyone and everything else in her life. During her tenure at Zion, she ran their Sunday school program, was a reader, a greeter, and eventually joined the Vestry. As an accomplished baker, she also participated in every baking event and food fundraiser she could.
As an accomplished baker, Janie produced the most amazing Christmas cookies, fudge, candy, breads and cakes. She made hundreds of dozens, saving only a few dozen for Frank and herself, while packaging, mailing, and delivering the rest to those she loved. And her rule was: you had best save the containers and return them if you want any more next year. Janie leaves behind approximately 12,578 plastic food containers, each one representing the love she gave and the love that was returned.
Carol Washburn, Becky DeSmith, Harry Daggett, and their families will be hosting a celebration of Janie’s life in the months ahead, back in Janie’s original home town of Canandaigua, New York. Burial will be private.
