Janice M. Stauffer, 65, Goodwill worker, loved people, holding babies, having nails done

By on July 5, 2017

Janice M. Stauffer, 65, entered into rest July 1, 2017, at Lancashire Hall, Lititz.

She was born in Ephrata, daughter of the late Ivan Z. Stauffer and the late Amanda (Martin) Stauffer.

Janice enjoyed playing piano, doing word-searches, getting her nails done, celebrating her birthday and holding babies. She loved cats, parakeets and guinea pigs. But, most of all she loved people, and her big smile and hugs (and her yelling) will be remembered by many.

She was connected with Friendship Community, Lititz, for many years, and also worked at Goodwill Industries, Lighthouse Rehabilitation, Occupational Development Center, and other places. Before living at Lancashire, Janice resided at Welsh Mountain Home, New Holland, for several years. The highlight of her summer for many years was a week at Camp Hebron, and the staff, especially the camp nurses, got to know her well. She also enjoyed going to community events with her mother and attending Grace Fellowship Church, Ephrata, of which she was a member.

She is survived by her brother: James, husband of Janine (Hackman) Stauffer, of Ephrata; sister: Joyce Stauffer of Akron; a niece: Jolyn (Stauffer), wife of Travis Wolf, of Akron; and two great-nephews: Ethan and Elliot Wolf.

Services were held July 5 at Stradling Funeral Home, Akron, with Andrew Maines officiating.

Arrangements by Stradling Funeral Homes Inc., Akron/Ephrata. Online condolences can be given at stradlingfuneralhome.com.
