Sorry for your loss. She was a fun lady I worked with at ATE in central service . She always had us laughing. Best of all she always brought her M&M casserole for us. Will always cherish the memories. I will miss her witty things on Facebook. Prayers to all of you during this time?

I am truly sorry for the loss your family must feel right now. Janice was a beautiful, and awesome person to know. I worked with her at St.E's for several years. She was a down to earth person, and she didn't play games. She was such fun to be around, and joke and laugh with. But, more than that she loved her family. She would always talk about and sing high praises of everyone in her family. I'm sure she will be missed greatly. I was thinking of her so much a month ago, but didn't send a message. I'm sorry I missed that chance. God bless you all. Much love to you all.
