She enjoyed summers swimming in the ocean, boating, and Megansett beach most of all flipping off the dock and finding ocean creatures. Fishing in ponds and the ocean were a favorite pastime.
Janell loved animals and frequently went horseback riding in the plains and mountains of Colorado and loved going with her family to Tanque Verde Ranch in Arizona. Janell thrived in the outdoors and was an avid, expert skier who loved to ski the hardest and most challenging trails in Maine, Utah, Colorado, and Canada. She enjoyed playing golf and hiking the mountains of Colorado. One of her favorite holidays was Halloween because she was a creative artist with makeup.
Janell's most recent job was to run her own dog training business called Jem's Pack where she helped others to live the outdoor life and be able to bring their well behaved dogs with them on their daily adventures. In high school and throughout her visits to Maine she apprenticed as a musher at Mahoosuc Guide Service where she adopted her first sled dog Mille. She trained her next Chow dog Nova as a service dog who flew back and forth across country to visit her family.
Janell had many friends because of her empathy and caring heart. She was called auntie Jelly by her closest friends' children and she loved going to their recitals, birthday parties, and bringing them to parks and places like the butterfly sanctuary in Denver, Colorado.
She leaves her parents John and Heidi Marotta formerly of North Falmouth and now of Plymouth, MA and Newry Maine, her brother Jake Marotta and his wife Lacey of Bethel, Maine, her boyfriend Justin Brozovich of Colorado, her dogs Aurora and Axel, and many friends and family in Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, and across the country. In lieu of flowers memorial donations can be made in her name to a place she visited and cared about called the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, CO.
