Janice Lynn Olson
February 13, 1946 - November 30, 2016
Janice Olson of Apple Valley, California, rode into the sunset the morning of November 30th, 2016. Janice is most noted for her daring adventures to the distant and mysterious island of Papua New Guinea where she located forgotten WWII aircraft deep in the jungles. One crash site included the skeletal remains of Lt. Howard Eberly who still wore the matching golden ID bracelet shared with his wife some fifty years before his remains were returned. Janice was a strong leader and savvy business woman. She will be remembered and missed for her boisterous laughter and sharp wit. For her interest in the world and the great lengths she took to understand it. For her love of poetry, opera, and her quiet cabin in the woods - the only place she was ever seen to sit still. Though her restless heart has finally found ease, she has left her mark on the world as a vibrant and energetic troublemaker, and above all, someone who truly left this world in a better condition than she found it. Services will be held at Sunset Hills Memorial Park and Mortuary in Apple Valley, Saturday December 17, from 2:00 to 5:00pm. Please contact the mortuary for flower donations, or other questions. Sunset Hills 24000 Waalew Rd. Apple Valley, CA 92307 (760) 247-0155
