Janice Sophia Crouse, the daughter of Einar and Gunhild (Carlson) Johnson, was born on a very snowy day on Feb. 14, 1936, in Red Oak. Janice was raised on a farm in rural Red Oak. She graduated with the Red Oak High School class of 1953 and attended Commercial Extension Business School in Omaha. Janice was united in marriage to Bobby D. Crouse on Sept. 29, 1957, in Red Oak. They made their home in the Emerson and Hastings area, and Janice worked a few years for the ASCS office in Malvern. She then began her 28-year career with the Natural Gas Pipeline Company as an administrative assistant, from which she retired.
Janice enjoyed bowling, traveling, sailing on cruises, and playing cards with family and friends. She was an avid reader and researched many items and investments before purchases were made. Janice attended the Emerson United Methodist Church, was a long-standing member of the Emerson Community Club, was past president of Hen House Social club, past member of Order of Eastern Star, and American Legion Levi Burton Post 575 Auxiliary, all of Emerson, and Beta Sigma Phi of Red Oak.
Janice was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Bobby on Sept. 26, 1994; brother, Donald Johnson; brothers- and sisters-in-law, Vernon Crouse, Cliff and Betty Baldozier, Janis Crouse and Bill Ryan.
