On May 26, 1930, Janice was born in Wyandot County, Ohio, one of five daughters of the late Benjamin and Syreva “May” (Knight) Stief. She was raised on the family farm in Harpster and graduated from Caledonia High School.
Shortly after graduation, Janice married a young gentleman who also was raised on a family farm in Harpster, Jerald “Jerry” Comstock, on July 14, 1948, at Emanuel Lutheran Church. Together they shared thirty five years of marriage. He preceded her in death in 1983 after a tragic work accident.
Janice cared for her husband and children as a homemaker, until her children were raised. After which, she returned to work, working her way up to being the head cook at the River Valley School System from where she retired. Preferring to work over staying home, she continued working at both Meijer and Walgreens as a clerk until she was 83 years old, again retiring in 2013.
Janice and Jerry had been active members of the Emanuel Lutheran Church in Marion for many years, where she helped in the nursery. She also enjoyed living in Hobe Sound, Florida, for nearly twenty years.
