Janice worked at Worcester State Hospital for more than 20 years before retiring. She loved her job, caring for her patients, and her co-workers with whom she befriended. She was a very talented artist and always had a project she was creating. She loved to swim everywhere, but often swam laps at Brooks Pond. She was a very kind, caring, and generous person. She enjoyed spending her days surrounded by her family, her friends, her cat Pi, as well as all of her other fur babies.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
