I am devastated at the loss of my friend and client. I had the pleasure of styling her hair for 25 years or more. She was such a classy lady, I enjoyed our conversations and loved her laugh. She will be greatly missed, our condolences to her family

Janis was a very kind and caring woman. My life was made better to have known her through my employment. While my son was deployed to Afghanistan last year and I was stressed, Janis always had an encouraging word for me when we spoke. Janis shared so many lovely stories about how much she loved her family. Rest in Peace

I really can't believe it. It was only a few days ago that I had a lovely conversation (as always) by Janis' desk at work... She exuded warmth, kindness, and humor. She was so supportive throughout my pregnancy, and when I came back from maternity leave I couldn't wait to see her and catch up. Janis loved her family so much, especially her grandkids. She had a calendar with all of their pictures proudly displayed right by her desk and would be more than happy to talk about her grandkids to anyone who showed an interest. It's such a loss and so hard to come to terms with. Sending lots of love to Janis' family.

Speechless. My deepest sympathies for your loss- and a loss to the many she touched every day. Without hesitation, Janis was always there to help and ask a sincere question of "How are you?" I have missed hearing her stories and the little conversations we would have. Thank you, Ms. Doten, for the wonderful person you are to all of us. You will be missed.

Janis has been a coworker and friend for many years. She always greeted me with a smile or had an encouraging word on our tougher days at school. Her consistent presence, support and quiet strength will be sorely missed at Hannah More.

Mrs. Janis, You will be missed more then you know. Thank you for always supporting Candice and I growing up, and playing soccer together. I will always remember the holidays, and sleepovers. Thank you also for being one of my mom's best friends. We had so many fond memories in OC! I will miss you so much, we will miss you. You can now watch over your family from heaven, and we will always remember your calm, joyful presence! Love you.

As one of these many fortunate co-workers who had the privilege of knowing Janis and appreciating her warm smile and accepting presence each and every day for over twenty years, I will miss her tremendously. Trying to convey to our students and their parents who it is that we've lost, we've described her 'positive and cooperative attitude illuminating a life of quietly dedicated service'. Janis epitomized Devotion and Grace. Rest in Peace, Dear Friend.
