Janet Gay Nyholm ’47

Janet Gay Nyholm ’47, a creative, faithful life force who lived in Europe and Israel after graduation, died March 5, 2018.

After meeting and marrying a Danish trout farmer and artist, Janet moved to Denmark, where the couple raised a family of five children in an old farmhouse in the woods by a stream.

“Like her husband, Janet was cremated, and their urns are sat down in a small hill where long grasses and wild flowers are blooming near our childhood home,” her children wrote in tribute.
