Janice N.

She was raised in Lake in the Hills, where her mother later became village treasurer. 

Janice passed away on Monday, December 5, 2022, at Javon Bea Hospital in Rockford, Illinois. 

Jan loved to spend time with family. She always spoiled her grandkids and great grandkids. Christmas was her favorite holiday. Jan loved giving gifts and having the whole family around her. Jan was truly the life of the party. She enjoyed fishing, listening to live music, and going on trips to the casino. 

She was always happy to head out on a day trip and believed in a glass of wine a day. In addition to her day trips, she loved winter getaways to Florida. In the mornings, Jan would watch the birds and enjoy her cup of coffee while admiring her flower garden. She also loved to buy random scratch-off tickets. Like her mother, Jan loved to read.
