She managed the farm and then retired to her home at Lakeview where she managed the coffee and doughnut shop and enjoyed playing euchre and billiards with her friends. She was also an active member of her congregation as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Janice loved life- she was a fighter; surviving cancer, two heart attacks and many other obstacles. She never let these things get her down, she pushed through with strong faith and reliance on God - always with a smile on her face. She enjoyed family gatherings where she would laugh, dance, and even play volleyball with her walker!
