Janice was always smiling and thoroughly enjoyed being Meemaw and spending time with her “Munchkin”.  She collected Mickey Mouse and anything with hearts.  Janice enjoyed being in comfy clothes and comfortable, curled up watching Days of Our Lives and any Life Time movie.  Anyone that knew Janice, knew her to have a sweet demeanor.
