I remember in Janices Sunday school class we were learning about how jesus feed the crowd with only a couple fish and she brought in sardens and non of us ate them except for her.

I remember being in Janice's kids group when I was younger. She really was sincere and showed the love of Christ. She had such a heart for children. She also did kind of say funny things on occasion and I will miss that about her. She truly was a good and faithful servant.

We met Janice through our church. I'll never forget the time we had trunk or treat at the church parking lot and Janice's theme was a pirate one. She loved pirates and then dressing up like them. She had a great love for children and her Father in heaven. We will surely miss her and express our deepest sympathy to her family.

I wanted to thank everyone for the nice comments and fond memories of our sister, Janice. She was one for the ages and we will miss her greatly. But as we keep her in our hearts and our thoughts, she will never truly be gone.

Janice loved to celebrate others by including confetti in her greeting cards. Now, when I see the first snowflakes on a winter day, I will always think of her among a band of angels tossing snowflake confetti down to earth. As long as those of us who knew her are alive, she will not be forgotten. Rest in heavenly peace.

Aunt Jan, you will be missed by many. I will always remember the confetti cards and the last words you said to me. You had a big heart and cared about others greatly. Although you will be missed, I am glad you are not suffering anymore.

Janice touched many lives over the years. She was a mother figure to some, an aunt to others and a leader to many through the kids programs she was involved in. She loved kids and would always be there to help them. Her love for Christ was on display for the kids and the adults she knew. Janice will be missed by all and Heaven has a new citizen who was a good & faithful servant.

I worked on cases with Janice while I was at the Sheriff's Department and Antwerp Police Department. She was so pleasant and always helping others. My deepest sympathy to her family.
