I remember Janice driving my school bus around Crooked Lake. The first time out she hit a stone wall and we had to exit from the back of the bus. She led a long, productive life and I remember her always laughing. My condolences to Cliff and the rest of the family.

My deepest sympathy. Jan was a dedicated Psi Iota Xi sorority Sister, who was always there to help. So committed to the community. I remember her and her husband walking holding each other’s hand. I told her I thought that was so sweet that they held each other’s hand while taking a walk. She said her husband walked to fast and holding his hand kept him in line.😉

I have fond memories of Janice, from her time as one of our Campfire leaders growing up and, later, as bus driver for many of the teams that I coached at Angola. She was like a member of our teams and I would hate to try to count the number of times she drove us around The Mound as we returned home from a competition. My thoughts are with you all.
