    Dearest Greenfield family,
    When I heard of Janice’s passing, I felt immediately that I had lost a dear aunt. Janice was always welcoming to me when Deb and I were friends in our youth. Many times I felt like she was a mom to me too! 🙂 I enjoyed playing in the barn, drinking milk from the milk house, that tasted different from normal milk! A couple years ago, she wrote me a beautiful Christmas note and I still remember it! May God come near and bless you as you mourn. And may all your memories bring smiles to your faces as well!

  5. Janice was such a wonderful person. She will be missed greatly. What I remember is that she always was willing to help others. Our sadness will one day be shouts of joy, when we see her again in the arms of our Lord and Savior. Rest in peace Janice so you may raise in Glory forever and ever.
    Neil and Bobbie Rand
