My sister and I just learned of Janice’s passing. We’d call her one of my mom’s, Betty Wilcox Steffen, best friends; mom thought dearly of Janice. She was such a good hearted soul. We feel blessed that she was in our lives. May she rest in peace. With heartfelt sympathy, Paula Steffen Marks and Marilyn Steffen.

Deepest sympathy on the passing of Janice.

My grandfather and her father were brothers. Since my mom's (Mildred Block Lindsay) passing, I have lost contact with Janice. She always kept my mom up-to-date on what was going on in the family.

Thoughts and prayers for the family.

I'm sorry to hear of Janice's passing. I' ll remember her always with a smile on her face and a faithful member of Zion Lutheran Church. She'll be in good company now with Uncle Sievert and the rest of her family.
