To Jan's family and friends,

I did not know her well, only on the fringe of celebrations with others.

She was always friendly & kind and she lit up a room effortlessly with her vivacious warmth and smile.

God bless her and all her family and friends.

I am sure her great spirit will leave a
void in many hearts...

So very sorry for your loss.🙏🕊❤

My condolences to the family, Bless their hearts and souls as Jan is at peace now. Jan and I became friends thru her sister Sue so many many years ago. I loved Jans pearly white smile and her laugh, we were friends instantly. I trusted her to cut my hair as she was an excellent hairdresser. I am so very sad that she left this world so soon as I am positive she had much more to give. I will think of you often and remember the good times we shared. I will miss you and your smile! Beautiful inside and out! ... With Love , Lori Touma xoxo

My beautiful dear friend, thank you for 22 years of great memories. From our weekly trips to the beach to our outings with the Mulberry crew. It was always a good time. You fought a tough battle and never once did you say why me? You will be missed dearly. Danielle you are your mothers pride and joy! Even when you two would act more like sisters.
To her wonderful family, please accept my deepest sympathies. She spoke of how you guys were by her side.
Jan you are now reunited with your dad.
Heaven has gained another Angel.

Rest In Peace Janice. We sat next to each other in kindergarten or first grade and I always thought it was cool you lived so close to Hatton School. Haven't been in touch in ages but have wonderful memories of growing up in the neighborhood and spending 12 years as classmates. My sincerest condolences to your family.

My friend you fought the biggest fight with dignity, strength & an amazing positive attitude.
Work will never be the same without you 30+ years of laughter, tears & all our inside jokes.
Danielle you are the one that kept your Mom going, she was so proud of you. To her family who through all their love & support were amazing.
Until we meet again my beautiful friend fly free with the Angel's & watch over all of us.
