Janet Teresko, age 74, died peacefully at her home in Harvard on Saturday evening, Aug. 25, 2018, after a brief illness.

Jan (as she preferred to be called) was born in Calumet City, a suburb of Chicago, Illinois, on April 20, 1944, the daughter of the late Alexander and Josephine (Smagacz) Teresko.  Raised and early educated in the Calumet City area, Jan enrolled and graduated from Creighton University in Nebraska.  She later earned a master’s degree in business from Suffolk University in Boston.

Early in her career, Jan became the director of a drug rehabilitation program for a community north of Boston. She later was offered a position in Denver, Colorado, where she continued working in social services.  Jan returned to the Boston area in the late 1970s to further her education in order to pursue a career in business.

In 1982, Jan purchased an old homestead in Harvard, lovingly named “High Hearth,” from poet and then owner Dorothy Eaton.  She revered Dorothy’s legacy, and later declared High Hearth her adopted home for life.

Jan worked at her home office for many years as an independent consultant for many small businesses.  She enjoyed travel, reading, was a dedicated volunteer for the Big Brother/Big Sister organization, and served as a court-appointed special advocate (CASA). She served as treasurer for both the Friends of the Harvard Public Library and the Harvard Women’s Business Network.

Throughout her life, Jan made many lifelong friends.  As one friend put it, “Jan befriended people over and over in her life.  I suspect that many of them will only realize now, so suddenly losing her and her friendship, how much she gave them.”

Along with her husband of 29 years, Pete Dumont, she is survived by her brother, A. Robert Teresko of Kansas City, Missouri; her stepchildren, Stephanie Dumont of Florida and James Dumont of North Carolina; six step-grandchildren and two step-great grandchildren; ‘Little Sister’ Stephanie Wendt of New Hampshire; sister-in-law Monique Marcotte and her husband Paul of Rhode Island; as well as several cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Family and friends will gather to honor and remember Jan on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Badger Funeral Home, 347 King St., Littleton.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice.
