My husband and I were friends of Janice’s here at Willow Valley.  We met shortly after Janice moved in to WV and immediately found out about her love for pinochle.  We started a group up playing double deck pinochle right after meeting her.  We shared alot of common things with Janice, our love for the Lord, we also never had any children, love for flowers and love for going to Florida in the winter.  When Janice fell back in May I tried to make sure she got her daily paper which she looked forward to getting and when she finally got moved back over to her campus of North at WV I went over and brought her over to play pinochle ever Tuesday and it seems to make her so happy.  She was a delight to be around and will be greatly missed.  Her love for her late husband was very apparent even though we never met Jim.  We were in Florida when she passed and were to to come back to PA just 5 days after her service which we hated to miss.  I especially will miss her, we had many wonderful talks.  Joan Mathews

We are sending our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Janice.  She was a special lady and a wonderful companion to Jim for 49 years.  Her warmth and graciousness will be missed by all and her love of antiques will have to be taken up by others so that items of material culture will be appropriately cared for.     John, Kathie and Amy Balog
