Janice enjoyed gardening, especially tending to her beautiful flower beds. Her greatest joy was preparing meals and spending time with family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren during the holiday seasons. Even though she was a master cook in the kitchen, she believed in overcooking steak until it chewed like rubber.
