Obituary of Janet MacLaren Kurland
Janet MacLaren Kurland, known to her friends as Munchy, passed away on February 14, 2023 of pneumonia. She was 43.
Munchy was born in Philadelphia on April 23, 1979, to Laren and Lawrence Kurland, the eldest of four children.

She attended the Holderness School in New Hampshire and then went on with her horse, Ebony, to the Madeira School in McLean, Virginia from which she graduated. She spent happy summers in Weekapaug, Rhode Island until she went off to college.
