Roach, Janice Redfield
Janice Redfield Roach, 86, of Omaha, Nebraska passed away on October 11, 2016. Jan, as she liked to be called, was born in Omaha on October 31, 1929 to Lois and Ralph Redfield.

Jan and Paul raised their family in Omaha and in 1999, retired to Phoenix, Arizona. A staunch Republican, Jan loved a good political debate over a glass of wine. She also loved birdwatching, animals, flowers and feeding the many hummingbirds in her Arizona backyard oasis. A special thanks to all of mom's companion caregivers but especially to Rene and Julie, and to Nichole of , for providing wonderful comfort and care for mom's final weeks. Jan is survived by her three daughters, Nancy Hakes, Sukey Kirkman (Rick) and Alison Fox (Derrick); five grandchildren, Tracey Paull (Ben), Taylor Sutton (Scott), Madison Kirkman, Drew and Jake Fox; two great-grandchildren Addison and Andrew Paull; her devoted feline, Cindy, and her very tame rescue Quaker parrot, Panchie.

In lieu of flowers, Jan requested donations to , 1510 East Flower St., Phoenix, AZ 85014, or to a no kill pet charity or shelter of your choice.
