Virginia Beach—Janet A. Resh peacefully passed away on July 3, 2021, in Virginia Beach, Virginia surrounded by her loving family.

Janet was born in Washington, D.C. on March 24, 1923 to Jacob and Anne Sterman.

Upon graduating from High school, Janet worked in the war effort as a secretary for the government during WWII. During this period, she met her future husband, David. Dave and Janet were married on December 20, 1942. In 1952, following Dave’s service in the Korean war, they moved to Norfolk where they established their roots within the Hampton Roads community. Very quickly Janet developed life-long relationships while highly active in the founding of Temple Israel. It was her unabated love and devotion to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren that would be her greatest life achievement.

Janet was predeceased in death by her husband, David Resh; her son, Michael Resh; her two sisters, Beatrice Deane and Violet Bazer and her brother, Alan Sterman.

Left to cherish her memory are her brother, Sidney Sterman of Washington D.C.; daughter, Lorie Resh of Virginia Beach; and sons Alan Resh (Sharon) of Norfolk and Robert J. Resh (Julie) of Virginia Beach. She is also survived by nine loving grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.

A graveside service officiated by Rabbi Israel Zoberman was held at Forest Lawn Cemetery.
