Janet Sullivan Golub

Janet Golub Obituary Boston Cremation

Janet Sullivan Golub, born Janet Lou Hecht, to Jack Hecht and Camille Hecht Hemminger on August 5, 1944, in Joplin Missouri passed away peacefully with family present on May 4, 2022 at age 77 after struggling with dementia for many years. 

A loving mother, an entrepreneur, a poet, a desperado, and above all a chaser of dreams.  Janet was a force of nature with an indomitable spirit who never hesitated to roll up her sleeves to attack an obstacle. Janet was not one for compromise. When she had a goal in mind, you either helped or got the hell out of her way. With this mindset, she wrote a beautiful book of poetry, started her own businesses, restored, and redesigned homes. She relocated to Florida, hating the cold winters of New England, but when her grandchildren were being born she didn’t hesitate to high-tail it back to be a devoted and present Nana.

Janet was a proud grandmother who loved spending time with her grandchildren and was happiest when ‘digging in the dirt’ (her garden) or buried in a book.

She is survived by her children and their families: son Marc Sullivan, daughter-in-law Ana Mei and grand-daughter Darcy Mei; daughter Michelle Hagerty, son-in-law Tom and grandchildren Evan, Brooke and Collin; son Michael Pearlstein, Daughter-in-Spirit Stacey Wilson and grandchildren Caitlin and Connor; son Jeffrey Pearlstein and granddaughter Sage Aurora; daughter Melanie Howard, son-in-law Tom; grandson Bobby Howard, wife Emily and great-grand daughter Nora; grandson Chris Howard, wife Lizz and great-grandson Malakai.  Janet was predeceased by her husband William (Bill) Golub and sister Judy Timmerman Miller,  

Janet is to be cremated and interred to “Mother Ocean ” to join her beloved Bill.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
