Janice lived in Wales her entire life, she was a "Wales girl". Very sweet, kind hearted, she would do anything she could for anyone who needed help. She grew up with the love of horses and wolves. She was an avid horseback rider. Her favorite getaway spot was York beach Maine with the light house and ocean, camping with her family every year. She loved doing crafts, her favorite was crocheting on dolls and making afghans and knitting. She loved her children and family. Her life changed with the birth of her grand-children, there are no words to describe her love for them, those were "her babies".
Janice worked many jobs throughout her life. She was a bartender at the circle H in Holland, MA, she did daycare, drove the school bus for union 61 Tantasqua and for gifted children, she delivered meals on wheels for over 20 years and worked at Stop and Shop in the deli for 17 years. Much more to say when family and friends gather together. She will be greatly missed and not forgotten.
Funeral services will be scheduled in the Spring.
