Janice played the organ and piano at our wedding and reception October 8, 1960. Even though we moved 3000 miles away to California in 1964, our friendship never diminished. Their family came to visit us in New Mexico and we took a visit across the border to Mexico. I can still see Tom in his giant sombrero! They also visited us in California. Her presence on Facebook has kept us up to date with family happenings and also with our home town of Winchester. We always looked forward to visiting Buffalo and our visits with Tom and Janice. I miss them both very much. My husband passed away Sept. 14, 2023. My deepest sympathy. Janet Sobottka

Jan would stop by my parents house with other women from church or by herself and would have coffee or tea with my mom , and in the summer pastor Dalbo would stop by to sit & talk with my dad ,they would drink my mom's sweet tea ,pastor enjoyed it immensely ,they would talk for however much time pastor had,my parents thought of them as friends first and foremost, they respected both of your parents very much, my mom was envious of Jan's musical talents

When I think of your dear mother, all I see is "The Giving Tree" for that was Jan. Always ready to give of herself at all cost and with your dear Dad by her side to spend their lives ministering to the people of God.. The fact is I bought the book for your Mom but never had the chance to give it too her.

I love them both so much. Even thought we were Catholics, they welcome us with open arms and never tried to change our ways. Surely they showed us the face of God. My heart goes out to you in your sorrow and I pray the memories of your Dad and Mom will comfort you …

Jan was such a delightful woman and gave so much to our community through the West Seneca Community of Churches! She was loved very much, and we pray that her family and friends are comforted knowing that she is with her Lord, and reunited with her Tom. May she rest in peace, and rise in glory, Amen Rev. Claudia Scheda and the congregation of St. David's Episcopal Church in West Seneca.

My sincere condolences to Janice's family and friends during this difficult time. I remember Jan as being so musically talented and a genius at improv when an occasion arose for the need! Comfort for the days that follow. Sally Pitz Hand
