    1. Janice was a lovely lady and a great neighbor. She loved to work in her yard. I had not seen her outside in sometime and am sorry that I did not know she was ill until after she passed. She is no longer in pain and working in Gods garden now. She loved her girls so much and loved to talk about them. Go fly high, Janice! Rest in the arms of God! You will be missed on earth but we will all meet again in Heaven someday! Your neighbor. Annette Ward

    Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your wife, Mother, sister and aunt. I’m thankful that I had the chance to know Janice and will miss my time with her. She loved you all and expressed this sentiment to me many times. My thoughts are with you all.

  2. Janice and Mark were my neighbors way back when I bought my first house in the 1980’s. Janice was a wonderful, spirited person and though life took us in different directions, I never forgot her friendship. Mark, I’m so sorry that she has passed, but I also know she had a good, full life with you. Prayers to you for healing and moving on to your ‘next chapter’.

  3. With our deepest sympathy and condolences to Mark and the Penk family for the untimely passing of Janice. Now that Janice is with the Heavenly Father, may she sing with all the voices of the mountains and paint with all the colors of the wind….
