Chief Janet Hay

CALISTOGA, Calif. - Janet Emma (Joachim) Hay, 95, died peacefully in her home that she shared with her friend, La Verne Oyarzo, for 26 years, on Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2009. She was the wife of the late Commander Harold Robert Hay, U.S. Navy, of Vallejo.

She was born in Central Falls, R.I., on Sept. 21, 1914. She was the daughter of the late Alfred and Lillian (Lamothe) Joachim.

She was a graduate of Pawtucket High School, Class of 1932, then attended business school from 1932 to 1934, worked as a cashier at the N.Y. Lace Store from 1934 to 1937, and worked as a secretary in the office of J.M. Ott in Pawtucket, R.I. from 1937 to 1943.

She joined the U.S. Navy WAVES during World War II as a disbursing clerk and later as WAVE recruiter, 1943-1963.

Her final rank was that of chief petty officer.

Her naval experience took place at: U.S.N.T.C. Sampson, N.Y.; U.S. Naval Station, Pearl Harbor, T.H.; U.S. Naval Receiving Station, Treasure Island, San Francisco; Cincnelm, London, England; U.S. Naval Receiving Station, Long Beach; and U.S. Naval Receiving Station, Albany, N.Y.

While at the Treasure Island Naval Station, Janet met Dr. Hay, who was a podiatrist surgeon, who claimed "he held her foot before her hand."

On May 13, 1954, Janet married Cmdr. Dr. Harold Hay at St. Vincent's Church, in Vallejo. They bought and built a new home in Walnut Creek. In 1977, they built a new home just outside of Calistoga. Dr. Hay died in 1980 and in 1983 Janet moved in with a friend, closer to the town of Calistoga, where she could meet new friends, as volunteering and socializing gave her great pleasure.

She was a life member of the Sharpsteen Museum, Active Calistoga Barnraised and Tree Coalition volunteer, worked the SHARE program Alzheimer Respite, the Napa County Fair Association, the Catholic Women's Society, active member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Calistoga, and member of the North Bay Patriots.
