My former sister-in-law Janice’s obituary

Janice Cusack

  |   Visit Guest Book

Janice Cusack went to be with her Lord on 7/29/11 after a brave battle with cancer.
Janice Kroon Cusack was born July 29, 1953 in Ft. Monroe, VA to Phil and Jean Kroon. Janice's father was a career military man, and by the time she was five years old, she had moved from Virginia to California to Indiana with her parents and older sisters Diane and Kathy. Janice attended elementary & high school in Lafayette, Indiana and college in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
In 1973 she moved to Southern California where she later met her husband, Patrick. Pat & Janice were married in Orange County in November of 1990 and were blessed with the birth of their son, Collin, in March of 1992. In August 1999 the family moved to Santa Maria CA where Collin graduated from Pacific Christian School, and from St. Joseph High School in 2010. He is now attending Pepperdine University in Malibu. Janice was so proud of Collin, and her favorite times were being involved with him and his schools and the sports he excelled in. God blessed her with many special friends met through school, sports, church, Bible studies, and the jobs that she held. She loved people and got joy out of making them feel special. Her husband, Pat, often called her his "social butterfly" , and she relished the label! Janice will be greatly missed, but she trusts that she will be together again with her family and friends.
Janice was preceded in death by her parents, her brother-in-law Bob Teerman and her mother-in-law and father-in-law, Tillie & Patrick Cusack. She is survived by her husband and son, her sisters Diane (Bill) Morris and Kathy Teerman, as well as nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews, and her very special, long time "adopted" family-the Grasmeyer clan of Southern California.
Funeral services will be conducted by Pastor Clete Doyal at First Christian Church in Santa Maria on Saturday, 8/6/11 at 11:00 am with a celebration of life reception afterwards at the Santa Maria Country Club. In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mission Hope Cancer Foundation at 220 South Palisade, suite 204 Santa Maria, CA 93454 or to the Santa Maria Humane Society.
Arrangements are under the direction of Dudley-Hoffman Mortuary, Crematory and Memorial Gardens.
