Janet Orfanello Fontano

On July 12, 2021, Janet (Orfanello) Fontano died at her home in Orlando, FL just shy of her 74th birthday after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Janet is survived by her children, Luke Fontano and his wife Suzanne of Framingham, MA, Matthew Fontano of Orlando FL and Emily Fontano and her partner Adam Lind of Orlando FL. She also leaves her sister Julia Orfanello of Apollo Beach FL and her grandchildren Kelly and Connor. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Dennis Fontano and her parents Louis Orfanello and Beatrice (Fisher) Hutchins.  

Janet was a loving mother, grandmother, and wife, A wonderful sister, and a loyal friend with a boundless joy for living. An endless supporter of her children’s endeavors. Ball games, plays, musicals, rock shows, Janet would always be there laughing, cheering, dancing, and smiling. A zest for travel, art, film, and music, Janet’s tastes were varied and passionate. 

 A private ceremony will be held later this year.  The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to her favorite charity St. Jude’s Children's Hospital.
