Janice Williams Obituary
Janice Williams, 93, of Spring Brook Twp., passed away on Saturday, March 21, at St. Mary's Villa in Elmhurst.

Born in Kingston, she was the daughter of the late Winston C. and Ellen Jenkins Williams. She was a graduate of Forty Fort High School and the Nesbitt Memorial Hospital School of Nursing. She received her bachelor's degree and master's degree from College Misericordia.

Janice served for a short time as a cadet nurse at the Valley Forge Hospital during World War II. She spent the majority of her nursing career with the Wyoming Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross in various capacities, including blood director of nursing. Janice was awarded the Clara Barton Award from the American Red Cross from Volunteerism. She was also briefly employed as a school nurse in the Forty Fort School District.

She had a love for baseball and was a longtime season ticket holder of the Red Barons. Her dogs, that were constantly by her side, brought much joy to her life. Her friends could always find her either on her tractor or driving by in her pickup truck. Many will mourn her loss.
