Janice Anderson Obituary
HARVARD – Janice Anderson, 75, of Harvard, passed away Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011, after a courageous three-year battle with ovarian cancer, with family at her bedside at OSF St. Anthony Medical Center in Rockford.
She was a loving wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, who will live forever in our hearts. Born July 4, 1936, in DeKalb, she was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Lois Skaar. She married her soul mate, Dale Anderson, on June 23, 1956, at Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church.
Janice was extremely devoted to her family, was an avid reader, and enjoyed gardening, traveling, and her children's/grandchildren's sporting events. She worked at Follett Software Company in Crystal Lake for more than 25 years.
Survivors include her loving husband Dale Sr.; her four sons, Dale Jr., Thomas (Vicki), Timothy (Carla), and Mark (Jennifer); 12 grandchildren, Jennifer (Kris) Bradford, Daniel (Angela), Christa, Casey, Tatum, Karch, Jaxon, Carter, Weston, Ava, Becklin and Cooper; two great-grandchildren, Makenna (Jennifer and Kris), Mila (Casey and fiancé Kristoffer) and Sharla Anderson. Janice was one of fifteen brothers and sisters.
We would like to especially thank Dr. Hoskins and the extraordinary, caring staffs from Center for Cancer Care and the 4 west Oncology Unit at OSF for their devoted care given to Janice.
The visitation will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14, at Sunset Funeral Home, 8800 North Alpine Road, Machesney Park. The funeral will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, at the funeral home. Burial will be in Sunset Memorial Gardens.
