Please share a memory of Janet to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Janet Elphick, age 103, resident of Pulaski since 1972, formerly of Orwell, passed away Thursday at Seneca Hill Manor in Oswego. Janet was born April 18, 1918, in Sherrill, NY, the daughter of Otto J. and Bertha Miller Freeman. She graduated from Sherrill High School. Janet was married to Edson “Andy” Elphick on October 5, 1940, and he passed away November 26, 2014. She and her husband operated a dairy farm in Orwell for 26 years and she had also worked for Oneida Limited. Janet adapted quite well to country living and did her share of farm work as well as maintaining an immaculate household. She also had a deep sense of empathy for all animals, especially her beloved cats that always seemed to find their way to her welcoming backyard and she still had two to spoil right to the end.  


Surviving are two sons, Brian Elphick of Pulaski and Rick (Kathy) Elphick of Layton, UT, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren and one niece, Sally Banks of Vernon. Janet was predeceased by one brother Loren Freeman and two sisters, Carrie Millard and Evelyn Jones.  


Funeral services will be held in the spring. Arrangements by Foster-Hax Funeral Home, 52 Park Street, Pulaski.
