Janene Murray died May 14, 2007, after nearly a decade of battling end-stage renal disease.
A graduate of Willingboro (N.J.) High School, Janene proved herself a gifted athlete in softball and field hockey at Princeton. She was featured in The Daily Princetonian after pitching a no-hitter on the varsity women’s team. Graduating with a major in politics, Janene moved to New York City, where she worked for a number of reinsurance companies in the Wall Street area, including Cigna and AIG.
In the late 1990s, she became ill and eventually received a kidney transplant in an attempt to overcome her disease. But her health began to fail again, and in November 2006 Janene entered the nursing home where she died.
Janene will be remembered as the life of the party, a beach lover, and a good cook. She is survived by her father, James, her siblings, a nephew, and a companion. The class extends its deepest sympathy to them and to Janene’s many friends.
