Janice was an honor graduate of Ridgemont High School class of 1939 and was a loyal member of 82 years of the Ridgeway-Ridgemont Alumni Association. She and Lloyd were ardent supporters of the school and of the Ridgeway and Mt. Victory communities. Together they founded an all girls livestock 4-H club and were advisors for 25 years. She was a charter member of the local Mother’s Club branch of Ohio Child Conservation League and a long standing member of Painter Creek Grange. Janice was a member of Mt. victory Church of Christ and a beloved Children’s Sunday School and Bible School teacher.
Always an avid reader, she fostered that love of reading in her children. Music was a special joy. She loved to sing and enjoyed any kind of concert or musical entertainment.
She and Lloyd were most happy on their little farm, Chilli Hills, with their registered flock of sheep in their “Little Red House” on the hill.
Janice was employed at the Mt. Victory State Bank, and prior to that she was a manager at the Plaza Inn.
She was extremely proud of her family, and she was loved and admired by her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Janice was a woman of strength and endless talents. She believed in her children’s talents and abilities and she encouraged them to work hard and always give their best. She has touched so many lives and will be missed by all who knew her. Her children will remember her by the words she instilled in them, the golden rule: “Do unto others as you , would have them do unto you!”
