Janet Mary Bailey 1934-2019

Angels Camp, CA...Janet Mary Bailey, 84, lovingly known as Mom and Nonie passed away on January 6, 2019 with family and friends by her side. The daughter of Silvio and Desdemona Rossetti, Janet was born in San Francisco but spent most of her life in Calaveras County, where her father Silvio, started Rossetti’s Restaurant in Wallace in 1923. Janet, a graduate of Calaveras High School was crowned Belle of the Camp in 1951. She then moved to San Francisco where she started her career as a legal secretary. There in San Francisco she met and married Art Novotny. They moved back to Calaveras County where she called home the rest of her life.

Janet continued her career as a legal secretary for the Airola Law Firm in San Andreas for 25 years. She married Bob Bailey in 1973, they were married until his passing in 1998.

After the death of her brother Geno, Janet and sister, Noreen ran the popular Rossetti’s restaurant until it sold. You could always find her in the restaurant where she did everything from hosting, bartending, cleaning and of course cooking all the Rossetti family recipes. She was known for her generous heart, ability to host an epic Cioppino feed and she never, ever let you leave hungry!

After Janet’s retirement from the restaurant, she enjoyed working in the yard, a good meal with friends/family, and of course, loving her beloved poodle Gina and cat Stinkerpie.

Janet will be lovingly remembered by daughter, Jennifer Novotny of Sacramento, CA, daughter, Janeen Butterfield (Brian) of Vancouver, WA, two grandsons, Jack and Luke Butterfield, Nephews, Ray (Yvonne), Ron and Rex (Karen) Sellick and many nieces and nephews. Janet loved her friends and neighbors in Wallace and the girls are incredibly grateful for all their help.

Rosary will be recited on Friday, January 11th at 7:00pm at Angels Memorial Chapel and Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, January 14, 2019, 10:00am at St. Joachim Catholic Church in Lockeford, CA.
In lieu of flowers, Janet would have loved for you to donate to any of her favorite charities involving pets, children, veterans, hospice or cancer.

Really sorry to read this. I grew up eating at Rosettis. I adored Janet and her vivacious personality. Rest in peace.
