I worked at the hospital with Janice and also lived down the block from her. She enjoyed working out in her yard.  She was always very nice to me and my husband, Martin. She will be missed. Prayers and thoughts to her family. May your memories help you all through this period of time.  RIP Janice.

I'm very sorry for your loss. Janice was one of my favorites at HAMC. I'm going to miss our little chats and joking around. She was one feisty lady. I'm glad I got to work with her in housekeeping.

Our sympathy to Janice's family  [Kelly and Pam and their families].
 We always enjoyed seeing Janice over the years as we visited Rugby.
