As a morning hostess in places like the Residence Inn and other local hotels, she had the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life. Her biggest joy was as a homemaker and spending more than 50 years raising their 3 incredible children and celebrating her 3 grandchildren.

Janice also enjoyed working with her husband Tom and their best friends Bill and Barb Kilts with NASCAR.  They spent several years traveling the northeast in their motorhomes while working the races.
