Janet Aroline (Seavey) Crandall, 92 years, a resident of Cape Porpoise, died Feb. 27, 2023, after a period of failing health.

Janet was born June 10, 1930, a daughter of the late George L. and Edna F. (Benson) Seavey.

Janet graduated from Kennebunk High School in 1948. That same year, she began her banking career in Boston. She rose through the ranks to work for the late CEO of Harvard Trust. Throughout her banking career, she was a member of the American Institute of Banking, serving in leadership positions at the local, state and national level.

Her passions included family reunions, graduations, weddings, special events and a Seavey Family newsletter which she started in 1970 and is still ongoing. She did not have children, but had special bonds with her numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband, Neil H. Crandall; her siblings, Ruth Seavey McGinley, Fred Seavey, Pauline Seavey Johnson Staples, John Seavey, Mary Elizabeth Seavey and Harrison Seavey, Sr.
