Janet Weart, born June 3, 1911, passed away April 1, 2012 at Greenwich Hospital. Mrs. Weart, who lived in Larchmont for more than a half century, and then in Rye, was active in many local organizations. She played bridge until age 98 and listened to audiobooks until about a week before her death.
Mrs. Weart was a past president of the Larchmont League of Women Voters, and she served as an elder at Larchmont Avenue Church. Her activities included coordinating Meals on Wheels, and she did volunteer tutoring, enabling a man who had been semiliterate to get a job. She also helped her husband, Spencer Weart, with his bank consulting firm.
An Emergency Room physician described her mind as "amazing for her age." Mrs. Weart attributed her alertness to her mental activities. For many years she played bridge almost every day, and when her eyesight failed, she listened to audiobooks and attended discussions of books and news at The Osborn, Rye.
Her death was due to complications from fractures because of a fall. She is survived by her son Spencer in Hastings-on-Hudson, her daughter Jenna in Manhattan, two grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
