I went to grade school with Janice. For High school we went our separate ways but when my mom passed in 2009 she found me and came to the viewing. We kept in touch until my husband became ill and we once again lost contact. She was a good friend growing up. I am so sorry for your loss, losing a spouse and a mother takes a long time to figure how to get through life without them. God Bless all of you.

My late wife Catherine was also a teacher at the Scranton State School for the deaf for years. She knew Janice well and spoke highly of her. I had met her once and thought what a lovely person she was. She will be terribly missed. My condolences.

Angie was a kind and considerant woman, who would laugh at my silliness, but always had a great smile on her face, she was truly a great woman, and accepted me into her family, and introduced me to her brother, she was an all around kinder soul my sister in law will be missed. My brother cleroy I could always tell from the begining that she truly was the love of his life. My condolences from Kendall Johnston and family

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved wife and mother. G. J. touched our lives about twenty years ago. She came to our home to work with me and my daughter who was born deaf. She had so much to do with my daughter, Bethany learning to communicate with sign language. She was such a preciuos soul. She was at my home to help us, but I truly enjoyed her company. She was an amazing person and I look forward to seeing her again in Glory.
