I was deeply saddened to learn of Janeice's passing. My heart and prayers go out to Sam and the rest of her beloved family. I will miss Janeice's sense of humor- she could always make me laugh- and her positive outlook. I admired her strength and courage through her battle. She was a good and patient instructor as I tried to master the "art" of histology and I feel blessed to have had her friendship in the years since leaving Purdue.

I have memories of Jan my entire lifetime whether it was a pool party, Christmas party or a coffee clatch. Never the loudest, but she had a presence about her that you definitely knew she was there and a comfort that made her very approachable and a fast friend. She will be missed. Love you my friend ♥️

Our condolences to Sam and family. I was saddened to learn and read of the passing of another ADDL colleague and friend. Janeice was the supervisor of the Histopathology lab for as long as I was there. Her lab served not only the Staff and local veterinarians but all veterinarians throughout the state. When you lost your pet, Janeice and her staff would have played a big part in assisting your veterinarian in making a diagnosis through slides of tissues prepared in her lab. RIP Janeice. Thanks for all your efforts.
