    Janice will be sadly missed I know. I never had a conversation with her that I didn’t enjoy and we had many conversations over the many years of knowing each other. She adored Lynn and his family and enjoyed going to all their activities and rooting them all on. Janice is one person I’ll never forget.

Janice was always a smile away… made everyone’s day, no matter how dreary it could be she made it a brighter day… Heaven is just beaming with sunshine today, may you always feel the warmth of her smile from above upon your cheeks…
