She was predeceased by a daughter, Sherri Lynn Rood (1960) and a son-in-law, Joseph DeFelippo.

Jan was affectionately known as the “Cookie Lady”.  She loved baking ginger cookies and sharing them with others.  She was a master at canning, especially tomatoes.  Although she was not much of a sports fan, she loved watching the NY Yankees.  She deeply loved her cat, who was never far from her side.  Janice loved maintaining her beautiful flowers with her husband Bill.  They received compliments every year for their spectacular flower arrangements.  She loved cooking, especially with her granddaughters, Jaime & Erica.

Jan was also a member of the Insurance Women’s Club and VFW Post #1231 Ladies Auxillary.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,

it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love Never Fails.
