She had been continually active in the “Hearts of Mercy”, also in Barnegat, New Jersey, which is a volunteer organization that dedicates itself to provide support, care, and guidance for underserved children. Janice, who had a heart of gold and embodied an absolutely loving and caring nature had always been involved in volunteer work. She would go above and beyond to help anyone in need, whether it was a donation of food or clothing or simply an act of kindness. Janice had a purity to her soul and such a generosity of spirit, that many were always amazed by her dedication to those in need.
