On June 12, 1959 she married James G. Owens. Together they have one son, Mark R. Owens.

On September 25, 1971 she married G. Michael Lemley, who survives.

Janice loved nature. One of her favorite pastimes was looking for arrowheads. Whenever there was an animal in need Janice was the one to call. Others would have given up on the many kittens that she nurtured back to health over the years.

She enjoyed family get-togethers and spending time with friends. She was a good cook and the family always expected a dish of her special deviled eggs at family functions.

Michael Lemley; a brother Carrol (Jeannine) Gleason and a sister Donna (Chuck) Treisch all of near Chesterville; father-in-law Herman (Marie) Lemley of Florida; sisters-in-law Beverly Sobers and Kimberly Lemley; brothers-in-law John and Roger Lemley all of Mount Vernon and several nieces and nephews and their families.
