You could often find Janice reading, gardening, cooking, and sewing. If you stopped by to visit, you had better have the time to spare for a good story. She loved to collect antiques, traveling, and shopping. They were even “snow birds” and would travel to Florida during the harsh northern winters. Janice and Jim made Ireland there home for the past 26 years and enjoyed every minute of time spent together.
