    My deepest condolences to the Reardon family. Mrs. Janice Reardon will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Wishing to send a comforting hope for the future based on the words of our Lord Jesus Christ found in John 5:28, 29 - " Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life."  May the hope of once again seeing our loved ones give you the strength that you need during this difficult time. For more information, please visit JW.org
  • Sandra Smith Thorne - RHS Clas  - Fond memories of RHS & Friendship
    Please accept our condolences in the loss of Janice. She was a fun and happy person in our RHS-days and over the years we have talked and shared life events. I had tried to convince her to join us for our recent Reunion events, but her health had kept her home. I did share with her our notes and gathering fun with pictures and phone calls. Jan and I share the Special friendship with Mrs. Small, our RHS Librarian and her family. Jan will be remembered by her classmates at our 60th Reunion with others we have lost. God Bless her! Jan is at peace, may the memories of her wonderful life help you through this time and give you strength in the future! Fondly, Sandra and the RHS Class of '58 Reunion Committee

    Jan was my mother in law for 8 years. She was a strong woman. She loved her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren with all she had. If I only needed to say one thing it was that she was a strong and successful advocate for her children. So sorry for your loss. Praying for peace and strength.

    I will miss you Jan ….... I will especially miss the silly thing you counted on me for like keeping you supplied with Coarse Black Pepper & Hymalayan Salt. I will not miss the crazy collection of Carousel's you left me but I sure do thank you for leaving me with the gift of the one you so fondly called “Baby Girl”. Thank you for accepting me into your family. For the rest of my days I will always be here for them. …...Rest in Peace! Love Rob
