  • Aunty Janice truly had a fulfilled life…a dearly beloved wife, a loving devoted mother,
    a proud adoring grandmother….and such a profoundly accomplished woman!

  • Janice, my beloved sister in law, words can not express how much I miss you! The best times of my life were the days and nights we spent dancing. When I close my eyes I see your hair flying and your beautiful smiling face driving us to the dances in your little turquoise Studebaker. Even though life got in the way of us seeing each other, time would just melt away whenever we spoke on the phone.
    I love you and I will always be talking to you in my dreams!

    Your “Sister” Madeline
