My thoughts and prayers go out to you, Jake, and your family, on the loss of your mom. Janice was a dear friend, and although we hadn't visited recently, I carry with me many, many good memories of fun escapades and long, soul searching conversations. Mementos of her continue to be scattered through out my home, reminding me of her frequently...she has never been far from my thoughts. Rest in peace, Janice. You will be missed.

We are so very sorry to hear that Janice has passed. We will keep her family, especially for Jake, in our thoughts and prayers.
I will always remember the great time we had when we went on a haunted tour in downtown Bloomington. Janice was a great neighbor and we will miss her beautiful smile.
Love, Tony and Peggy Spicer

My thoughts and concern for Janice's family. She and I worked together at Country for quite some time. She was a delight to work with, so sharp, so willing to do her part, and always willing to help others. Much more recently, she worked with my son (who is also now deceased) at State Farm. She was new to the job, he trained her and felt as I did about her. He was the person who sadly told me about her illness. I mourn her loss and offer my love and support to all of you.

Glad we reconnected after 40 years. Nice chat we had about days long ago.

I am good friends with her son, so I was causing a ruckus at her house with Jake since 2000. I thoroughly enjoyed talking classic rock and scary movies, seeing Janice at concerts, and spending time with her in Bloomington and Squirrely (Shirley). But what I enjoyed the most in those twenty years was being able to grow close enough with her for her to become something like a second mom to me. That’s just who she was, a very caring ‘hippie chick.’ My thoughts are with her family during this challenging time.

Janice had been a dear friend, having met in high school. We remained friends for many years although we had not visited recently I thought of her often. Janice loved fun and adventures. We enjoyed many adventures together including a trip to Florida shortly after graduation. We had the best time, one of many. I will remember the friendship we had over the years and the special times we shared. My thoughts and sympathy goes out to her family and loved ones. She will be missed.

Janice our friendship began when we worked at Country Insurance in Crop Hail Claims years ago. Over the years we celebrated your marriage and the birth of Jake. There are so many wonderful memories I have of you. You will be greatly missed. My sincere condolences to your family and friends.
