Janice loved to travel both near and far, especially enjoying travel to the American Southwest and to Great Britain. She was a creative person and instilled that creativity in her daughter. She loved making jewelry, crafting, and quilting. She enjoyed spending time with her family and would often go shopping with her daughter. She was a kind person who loved helping others, but especially loved helping animals in need.

I only knew Janice for a couple of years at Sycamore.  As I remember, she was a somewhat quiet person and I think I rmember that she and Linda Fenstermacher were "pals."  The most memorable thing I know about Janice is that when I was a little guy (up to age 4) we lived in Montgomery next door to Janice's grandmother and across the street from what is now Montgomery Inn.. I am sure that her family will miss her quiet, gentle spirit, as will tose of us who remember her.

Although I had not been in contact with Janice for many years, we spent many summer days playing together during our childhood in Montgomery. Janice and Anita, and My sister, Marty, and myself were often together, as we lived very close to one another. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

Janice and I spent many summer days together at her home in Montgomery.   We also attended college together and rode from Montgomery to UC almost every day!    I lost contact with her after she married Bob.  Condolences to her whole family and friends!
