April 23, 1927 ~ September 23, 2020

Born in: Romania
Resided in: Torrance, California

Janeta Raianu, a 10-year resident of Torrance California, passed away on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 in Lawndale, California. Born in Girla-Mare, Romania, Janeta was 93 when she died. Janeta had a long career as a pharmacist and was devoted to her work. At the age of 84 she moved to the United States and began learning English, which allowed her to enjoy her favorite TV shows and movies with closed captions (Dancing with the Stars was the undisputed number one on her list). She also did Sudoku and Word Finds in English with amazing speed, stopping only to look up unfamiliar words in the dictionary.

She loved flowers, birds, long walks, and, above all, her family. She also loved and was loved by many lifelong friends. The color photograph was taken during a walk in the South Bay area. The black-and-white photograph with her husband Mircea-Nicolae Raianu (1921-1986) was taken on the day they were married. Janeta is survived by her son Serban Raianu, her daughter-in-law Andrea Raianu, and her grandchildren Mircea C. Raianu and Erin Mosely.

Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, please think of her when you enjoy your next walk.
