Condolences

Janice was a generous and loving mother and grandmother. We’ll miss our visits with her in Caldwell and our phone calls when we were apart. We loved her honesty and forthright nature. Martin inherited many of Janice’s best traits, including her independence, loyalty, and compassion to others in need. We love you and miss you Mom and Granny ❤️
