Janice was born on December 11, 1932, in Geneva the daughter of the late Basil and Mae Pacil Rizzo. Janice was retired from working as an administrative assistant at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. After retiring, she and Tom owned Allen’s Used Merchandise.
Janice had an unshakeable faith in God and her savior, Jesus Christ. Janice was unassuming, with quiet strength. She put her family and others above herself and ministered at the Presbyterian Church through the prayer chain and SHERRV shop.
Janice filled journals with her thoughts, prayers and gratitude. She was an avid reader and loved to sit on her back porch watching birds and nature.
Janice remains beloved. Her gentle influence will be missed.

Allen; daughters Kimarie (David) Miller of Geneva, Linda Allen of Geneva and Beth (Preston) Dinkel of Geneva; grandchildren Noel (Michael) Taylor and Lindsey (Joseph) Frascatore; great-granddaughter Liesel Frascatore; sister, Consetta (Randy) Norris of Geneva; several nieces and nephews.
