Janice was one of many children taken out of the home and placed in an orphanage home in Duluth, MN where they taught her the Catholic religion. The also taught her how to clean up, do washing and ironing clothes. She always made sure that her sisters had clean clothes to wear. Later, Janice left to go to a place for older girls when she was fourteen years old. Janice was a loving sister who cared about her family. They were a close family, always caring for one another. She would cry when someone hurt the family. Janice was like a mother to her family. When she left, her sister was alone. The last words they told each other were "I love you."
