Janie Diggety (nee' Lilly) is the daughter of Leo and Lillian Lilly, the sister of Lydia Pearson, the wife of JoJo Diggety, the mother of Ned Diggety and aunt of Pepper Ann and Moose Pearson. She is an ex-Green Beret (The United States Army Special Forces). Her role in the series is giving Pepper Ann support and helping her solve her problems.


Janie is often seen protesting things that go against her beliefs and values, and is a supporter of environmentalism and feminism. She is a chairperson on the Environ-Mentals ("The Environ-Mentals"), and has helped her niece plant an organic garden for a school project in "The Beans of Wrath". She goes to the Adamant Eve women's retreat frequently ("The Sisterhood") and, alongside Moose and other Hazelnut residents, protested Tundra Woman's change of character in "Girl Power".


Janie has red hair, wears glasses, and two green earrings. She wears an olive green sleeveless t-shirt and shorts that are a darker shade of green, and brown loafers. She is usually seen with a necklace, which changes from a peace sign to a crystal, depending on the episode. She occasionally carries a handbag with her, as seen in the photo on the right.


  • In "Cold Feet" we learn that her name was supposed to be Lanie but because Lillian was given so much epidural after the birth she wrote the "L" backwards, but they decide to keep the name.
    • Also, if it wasn't for the fact that Janie was about to be born, she and Lillian would have been killed in the Buddy Holly plane crash.
  • In ​"The Way They Were" we found out that it was Janie who made Pepper Ann a big fan of Fuzzy.
