Janet Rosenberg, 86, of Northbrook, IL, formerly of Wilmette and Glenview, born Chicago, died November 11, 2017. A proud 1952 graduate of Purdue University, she was a well-loved early childhood teacher at Avoca West elementary school for 35 years, former board member of Project Linus, great friend, bridge player, baker, advocate of liberal causes and life-long, finally-satisfied Cubs fan.
