Janet Hannula Akyüz Mattei’s final resting place is 11000 C-47 Willow Pond Knoll (Pond Road), Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Mount Auburn Cemetery was chosen by Janet’s husband, Michael Mattei, for a number of reasons, including that it was a favorite place of Janet’s to visit, and, as a cemetery in which many world-known leaders, scientists, and humanitarians of all faiths are buried, it was an eminently appropriate place.
