Everyone who knew Janice (Big J) loved her. She was active in the Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts and enjoyed volunteer work at Saint Augustine's School in Andover. Her favorite times were spending the afternoon with her children and grandchildren and having family and friends over for her special Sunday dinners. She was an avid gardener and grew all of her own vegetables, strawberries and pears. She would spend hours canning her tomatoes and jams and would gift these items around the holidays. She will be dearly missed.
