Janet was born November 6, 1941 in Moira, the daughter of the late Amos and Caroline (St. Hilaire) White and attended Potsdam Schools. On July 13, 1957, she married David Lindsay at their home. He predeceased on December 23, 2018.

Janet was a hardworking and dedicated mother who cared for her children and many others throughout the years. Along with her late husband, she owned and operated Lindsay’s Mom and Pop Store in Potsdam for 23 years.

She is also survived by her sister, Betty LaBar of Potsdam; her brother, Norman and Berbie White of Parishville; and many nieces and nephews. There are also many other friends that she called her kids and they called her “Mom”. She loved them all dearly

In addition to her parents and her husband, she was predeceased by 2 children, Connie and Allen Lindsay; and her siblings, Lawrence White and twins, John and Joan White.

Bonnie and Tom Trippany. We were so sorry to hear about Janet's sudden passing. We lived a mile from them and shopped all the time at their store. She was a wonderful neighbor and friend-- and will be missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of her family.

I cannot express how I feel right now. I’ve known this lady for a long time as I used to take care of her mom. She definitely is a very special lady to me and always will be. I’m so glad you and Betty came to see me when I was up last summer. You hold a special place in my heart and I will never forget you but this is very emotional for me as I’m sure a lot of people. I love ❤️ you dearly. May you Rest In Peace now with the angels.
