Additionally, she performed publicly for many years playing the piano and organ in numerous weddings, graduations, dinner music in restaurants, for many private parties and various other public events. Her home was always filled with music and often the center of musical gatherings for family and friends and has remained so even to present day. Whether she was entertaining with it, teaching it to others, or simply listening to it at home with her girls, music provided a great deal of enjoyment for Janice and the entire family. Janice passed away peacefully on May 27, 2019 at her residence surrounded by her loving family.

Debra and Ronald, so very sorry to hear of your loss. I was so fortunate to have attended many events were she played and called her myself to schedule her to play for events that Amana had. Everyone loved listening to her play and she truly made a difference. Love to you all.
Lisa, Debra, Charla there are no words I can say to comfort what you must be feeling. She will be watching her family from heaven; instead of here. She has no pain just glory. God Bless
Debra, Lisa, Charla and families,
My heart is so heavy with grief, I know the pain firsthand. Janice was so much fun and I have such fond memories of her from when we all worked together. Know that God holds you in His hands as I hold you in my thoughts and prayers.
Lisa, Truly sorry to hear of your loss. Praying you find some comfort, as I did, knowing your parents are reunited for eternity. The short time of pain this side of Heaven doesn’t compare to the joy forever that awaits. You’ve always been blessed in this life, and will continue to be. Godspeed in your time of healing. Praying for your family.
Thinking of you in your time of sorrow.
What a fine legacy Janice leaves. She was so accomplished in music & every time you heard her renditions you realized how much she enjoyed music. Her obituary reflected this so eloquently. Her music touched mostly everyone in Lincoln County. May God bless you, the family as you say goodbye for now to meet her again in paradise!
