Memories Timeline


  1. I always enjoyed visiting with Janice at church. Many times she would give me newspaper clippings of articles our daughters were featured in. The last time I visited with her was in the grocery store. She seemed to be getting along better and we parted saying we would see each other at church. I will miss the conversation and smiles she brought with her every time we visited. God bless her family as they go through this difficult time.

  2. Our sympathy to all the family Janice was always so much fun to talk to. After Richard died Janice came to our class reunions. The class of l952 always enjoyed having her with us. God bless Janice.

  3. Dear Emily, Peter and Steve,

    My memory of Janice goes back a long way to your mother’s home off of West Chester Pike in Delaware County. This was before Janice was married. I remember visiting with her and your mother. They will be having a happy reunion now. Janice was blessed to have such a wonderful sister as Emily and two wonderful brothers and a happy life with her husband. May God Bless all of you!

  7. A beautiful lady, a beautiful soul, now pain free in eternal peace. Janice’s gain is truly her family’s loss. Our prayers are that all of Janice’s siblings, especially her loving sister Emily, find strength, courage, and consolation in the happy memories they shared with Janice.

  8. My husband and I would like to convey our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Janice. We would like to share with you something that has brought us much comfort at a similar time in our lives. John 11:14-44 shares with us the experience of Jesus resurrecting Lazarus here on earth before the very eyes of those he loved. We can only imagine the tears of joy when we too are reunited with our dear loved ones. (John 5:28,29) Janice will surely be missed by many of those who’s lives she shared, remember the experiences you shared together and learn from them, hold them close to your heart and cherish them. May you find comfort from those who surround you at this very difficult time. Our sincere condolences to all of you

  11. Emily and family, So sorry about your loss. The video tribute is so beautiful. Sisters are loved ones that link us together forever with memories of joy, and comfort in sadness.
