Janice was more than a coworker she was a second mother to me. She always knows when something was wrong, and when times were hard as a single mom. Janice's heart was bigger than life. Her love for family was key and she taught me this during my time growing my family. We had our own special way to show the love we would Chest Bump no matter where. We ate lunch for over 10 years together, we shared good times, bad times, and WTH moments, but my most memorable will be her stories and her laugh.
Janice loved everyone who got to know her. My heart goes out to every one of her grandkids she loves you all so much, your Sons she was so proud of each of you and spoke proudly of what you all have become, and you sweet and beautiful daughter aka BFF your and will always be her light ladies she adored her Kids family. And can't forget her only Best Friend her Rider or Die ! will never forget the fun times you ladies had and the stories will live on forever

I love you and will miss you

Janice and I went back a very long time in Charlestown. She lived in the same court as I. We used to have fun playing jump rope, roller skating, biking. We especially loved showing off our beautiful Easter clothes on that Sunday. She was always so much fun. Although we Only kept in touch once in awhile, we always felt a kinship. I'm so sorry to all of you, her family, at this difficult time. My family's thoughts and prayers are with you. Janice will me sorely missed. RIP, Janice

Dear Allan, Dan, Lisa, Katie, and Brian: All of the Svendsen family send our deepest condolences at the loss of your mom. Janice was a wonderful lady and she and I became friends and remained friends through all the years as we journeyed through the school years with all our kids. As we ran into each other all these past years living in Stoneham, we continued to share memories but also what was happening in our adult children's lives. She was so proud of all of you and loved you and all the grandchildren so very much. We felt blessed even through illness. May all the wonderful memories you have of her and all the special times together be a comfort to you now. When I remember her and all the fun we had parenting you guys through the years and when I think of how special she was, her smile will bring a smile to my face. So very sorry for your loss.
