Janet is Olivia Crain's sister. When Olivia's mental health started to deteriorate, she was supposed to go to Janet's house to take a break from the house. Olivia ended up not going, rather staying in the motel room the Crain family has used multiple time throughout the series, only to go back and try to kill Luke, Nell, and Abigail.
After Olivia dies, Hugh becomes distant and the children go off to live with Janet. Janet raises the children as her own, becoming their guardian.
She is the sister to Olivia Crain.
