Janice was an elementary school music teacher and taught at several of the Sweet Home elementary schools.
She enjoyed quilting, sewing, gardening, and canning. She loved rock climbing, being a private pilot, and musicals—especially the Sweet Home Singing Christmas Tree. Most of all, she loved the Black Hills of South Dakota where she spent summers as a child. She owned a cabin in Camp Remington.
Janice is survived by her husband, Roland Barthel, of Sweet Home; children Teresa Sears of Portland, Jennifer Barthel of Eugene, and Russ Barthel of Portland; siblings Kathy Shank of Twin Falls, Idaho, Steve Pyle of Athena, and Bob Quayle of Canyon Lake, California; and three grandchildren.
Celebration of Life Reception will be from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., Saturday, November 2, at the Sweet Home Evangelical Church Activity Center.
Memorial contributions can be made in Janice's name to Willamette Humane Society; www.whs4pets.org.
