Nina P. Janny, 90, wife of MSGT. John S. Janny USA Ret. (deceased), passed away at Anne Arundel Medical Center on Friday, June 8, 2018. The daughter of Anna and Petrovna (Peter) Pluszcewa was born on February 23, 1928 in Leningrad, Russia. Nina met her future husband who was serving in the United States Constabulary in Germany after the war and while she was working as a secretary and translator.
Once they were married, she became a mother and homemaker. Being in the service caused the family to travel for many years, and when John retired, they settled in Odenton. Nina worked in 2 beauty salons in the Odenton area. They were long time members of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Odenton.
Nina enjoyed meeting new people and had a wonderful sense of humor. Her number 1 passion was her family but, she also was an avid decorator and gardener.
She is survived by a son, Johnny Janny, a sister, Sonja Ratayczak, and 9 nieces and nephews.
