Janet Herrera

Retired campus telephone operator Janet Herrera passed away Nov. 9, after a battle with cancer. A long time UC staff member, Janet began working at the university in 1964, and from 1971 to her retirement at the end of 1996, worked at Telecommunication Services (now Communication & Network Services) as one of the "voices of Berkeley".

Herrera is remembered by many for her cheerful voice and encyclopedic knowledge of the campus. In a letter, one employee wrote of Herrera, "whenever (she) answers, I smile to myself -- here's a gal who obviously enjoys her job, does it well and communicates her pride and positive attitude."
