Janice always had a twinkle in her eye and an easy laugh which will be missed at Heyman Reunions. Our mothers (Janice and Ruth Ellen) had such a special cousin friendship. I remember taking mom to the farm while Donna was visiting and listening to them giggle like little girls in the other room. Our condolences to the family.

To all the siblings: We are so sorry to hear of Janice passing.We lived a farm away from your mother and father in the early 60's and always loved seeing them. When John went to college we moved to southern Ohio but his mother, Olive Niver was there until she passed and we sold the farm. Prayers for your family at this difficult time. John & Helen Niver
