Jan had a sharp mind, a compassionate heart, and a great sense of humor. I enjoyed working with her back in the day as well as staying in touch on Facebook after retirement. She will be sorely missed by many. I am lifting her family and loved ones in prayer for the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Jane and family, I am so sorry to hear about Janice. She was always fun to hang with and I have so many fond memories from high school and beyond. You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days to come.

We are saddened by the early passing of our dear Cousin, Janice. We are comforted knowing that she is a much better place, Jane Anne, please take comfort in that as well.
I was really fond of Janice and her bigger than life sense of humor, as well as her vast knowledge of literally everything.
I hope I spelled everything right, with no grammar errors, or she will scold me for that.

Our Deepest Sympathies,
Ben, Sue, Danielle. Jenny and Ben II
