Analynn Janovetz (née Anne Lynn Gerovic), of Nags Head, was born in Mellen, Wisc. on July 6, 1930, the daughter of Anne and Emil Gerovic. Analynn moved to the Washington, DC area at the age of 21 years with sisters Fran and Kay. She married Howard Mitchell Parsons in 1955 and moved to McLean, Va., where she became the loving mother to Amber Parsons, Cheryl Parsons-Oetjen and Robin Parsons-Rector. She was a stay-at-home mom for most of her children’s youth, always instilling words like morals, values, principals and ethics.
Once her children were grown, Analynn remarried William Janovetz and pursued a career in real estate and became a very successful agent in the McLean area.
She is survived by her daughters; grandchildren Kristelle Parsons-Toone married to Lance Toone, Patrick Parsons, Mark Oetjen married to Courtney, Micheal Oetjen married to Sarah, Eric Oetjen married to Stephanie and Tyler Rector married to Dusttany; nine great-grandchildren and two great-grandchildren by marriage.
