  • Janice was so much fun to work for. She was always laughing or smiling. I remember the fun times we had at Uncle Vern and Aunt Gladys’s house. She used to love to come to the Moose and dance and hear The Bullit Band. May she rest in peace. Thinking of all of the family.

  • To The Britt Family,
    I always enjoyed seeing Janice and Gary at our reunion, the we’re always friendly and funny. She will be missed.
