June 21, 1943 – August 24, 2018
Janice L. Sizemore passed away on August 24, 2018
Janice was born June 21, 1943 to Earl & Jewel Van Note (pre-deceased) in Bloomington, IL.
Raised most of her life by her beloved late step-father M. Abe Sizemore.
Janice, also known as Mom, G, & GG was loved by so many. She had a heart that could magically touch the lives of everyone she came into contact with. Janice didn’t have a hobby or a card group. She wasn’t a foodie or a hiker. She simply wanted and loved being a mom and grandmother. Her life was doing whatever her kids invited her to do or wherever her grandkids led her. She loved the casino; and as luck would have it, so do her children.
Family gatherings were here favorite times. She loved it when EVERYONE was together under one roof, with potato salad and deviled eggs!
Janice was an incredible person. She had no regrets and made that abundantly clear to all.
She is survived by her four daughters Kim (Dave) Santillan, Cindy Brown, Christie (Dino) Acevedo & Kathy (Chris) Bynum, A loving sister Marsha (Marion) Ingram, a sister-in-law Marilyn Van Note, ten wonderful grandchildren, Amanda (Scott) Carpenter, Neysa (Landon) Behrens, Angela Sanzio, Monica Sanzio, Zachary Brown, Carlie (Zacharie) Taylor, Kelsey Stromberg, Caitlin (Bret) Ashdown, Maygan Bynum & Nicholas Acevedo and four adored great grandchildren, Alexander Breitling, Jakob Ashworth, Mikah Ashworth & Ryleigh Derrig, and numerous nieces and nephews and people that called her “mom”. She was indeed, a mom of mom’s.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, September 1, 2018 at 1:30PM at West Resthaven Funeral Home, 6450 W. Northern Avenue, Glendale, AZ. Burial will follow at Resthaven Park Cemetery

I miss you Mom. A part of me is gone and I will never be the same. I am trying so hard to live the life you wanted me to and to be happy but this is a task that has proven to be the most difficult for me. I mourn you everyday and I am not quite certain how to go on.
I thank you every day for the love and life you gave me, for the countless sacrifices you made for me as my Mom and your unconditional love and comfort you gave to me for 51 years. I admire you beyond what I could have ever explained to you. You are the example by which all mothers should strive. Thank you Mommy. I miss you every minute of everyday and hope you are at peace.

Janice was one of the strongest women I have known. She had a work ethic that puts mine to shame. She always told you the truth (whether or not you wanted to hear it!) Her witty sense of humor always left me laughing! A trait she obviously passed on to at least one of her daughters!!
She called me "a beautiful lady" in a message during one of our conversations. These are strong words that only a mom knows that a girl needs to hear. I am grateful for those words. It is such a compliment coming from her. SHE is the beautiful lady! I will miss her dearly.
