Janice was a lover of life. Her pride for her family was only matched by her passion for caring for those she loved.
She loved to jitterbug, crocheting a blanket of your favorite colors, and making the best fudge and divinity every Christmas. As a nurse for over 30 years, she gained the knowledge to care for her many friends and family.
