Our Mother, Wife & Best friend & Family Anchor has passed away on Saturday February 10th in her home peacefully surrounded by family and loved ones. Janice was just 66 when she lost her battle with lung cancer. Being with her family was what Janice enjoyed most of all. Her life had many obstacles, and she struggled for 10 years with a devastating illness called cancer. Yet through it all, her love and caring for her family remained her focus and in so many, many ways, she was able to show that love to us.
As we remember Janice, her influence on this world would best be remembered for her joy and gift of life that she brought to her family and friends. Her wish is not for her family to be saddened by the pain of her loss, but to cherish the memories that she has created and left with everyone who knew her best. Even though it is very hard to say goodbye, and we wish that we had more time, and perhaps that during the time we had we had spent more of it together. Even though she is gone, she has left the legacy of her love and perseverance.
Janice spent a greater part of her life in fact she made it a career serving in the military and protecting our freedom. She didn’t want much mention of her service for her own personal reasons, but her family feels it’s important to remember how honorable and selfless Janice Lavery really was. She was 100% Medically Honorably discharged as a Sergeant after 10+ years of service.
Janice is survived by her husband Brian, her two sons William and Jimmy as well as her six grandchildren, and many other relatives and friends.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
