Prior to the birth of her children, Janice had a successful career working as a Field Chemist under contract for the EPA and as an Analytical Chemist for Bayer, Corp.

Burial will be held at Resurrection Cemetery, 5001 NE Cookingham Dr, Kansas City, MO, at 10 AM on Friday, January 15, 2016.

Janice was an active member of the Church of Annunciation and was a loving wife, mother, and sister. She is survived by her uncle, Justin Reese, aunt, Linda Reese, aunt, Laurel Wilkinson and uncle, Joseph Faria, nephew, Andre Kolarevic; 13 cousins, Kevin and Donny Womac, Jim Bob and Laura Henson, Paul Barns, Billy, Wayne and Andrea Kelly, Mark, Denise and Elaine Faria, Kathy Ann, Pam, Carol and Charlene Wilkinson, Robert and Heather Wilkinson, 3 cats, 1 dog, 1 rabbit, and 1 snake, as well as many of the neighborhood animals that were always welcome in her home for a quick meal or to warm up on a cold night.
Janice enjoyed hosting the holiday’s with her family, welcomed them into her home and made meals and room for everyone to stay, no matter how many family members were present.
Janice was a strong and committed person in many regards including her faith in God and in her battle with cancer. Over the last 6 years she participated in several Clinical Trials and treatments with the hope of finding a cure not only for herself but her hope also was that her participation would someday lead to saving others. She traveled to several different states for treatment and innovative surgeries and still rarely missed a Sunday Mass. Even after losing her battle to cancer she selflessly agreed to further follow-up research so that others may benefit from the last Clinical Trial she took part in.
Janice was a delightful person loved by everyone who knew her.
