Janis was a housekeeper at Lake of the Four Seasons for many years and helped at the American Legion Post #83 in LaPorte.  She enjoyed walking the beach and making surprise visits to family and friends.  Janis loved to shop and was always successful in finding a great deal.  She loved to vacation and was famous for her meatballs and oreo balls.  Janis had a very contagious laugh and was always there with a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on. She loved her family and friends very much and will be missed by all who knew her.
