Janice was born on February 21, 1951 in New Orleans, LA and was a longtime resident of St Bernard Parish.
After 50 years of dedication to Adler’s, she retired. The Adler’s Family treated her as part of their family. Her purpose in life was Adler’s. Her pride and joy was to love her grandkids and family. She imparted to her children the importance of family. Mark and Sheri are the parents they are today because of her example. She took on many rolls such as mother, nana, aunt, friend, everything, and our hero! Janice will be dearly missed, forever loved, never forgotten by her family and friends.
