Blume, Janice Jean (? - 18 April 2012)
Janice Jean Blume went home to be with her Savior, Jesus Christ, on Wednesday, April 18, 2012. She’ll join her family: Mom and Dad, Leona and Chet Moen; sister, Shirley Maslowski; two baby boys, Brian and Bradley; and ex-husband, Charles. Janice was born in Reseburg, WI, graduated from Thorp high School in 1951, and completed her Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1955 from Wisconsin State College, WI, and her Master of Arts Degree in 1971 from La Verne College, CA.
Throughout the years, she has touched and inspired many people and has led a wonderful and blessed life. Janice has been a public servant her entire life, either teaching in Wisconsin, California, South America, China, and other countries, helping young women and families through tough times, and serving her community as an alderman and member of the library board.
She has no regrets at leaving her family and friends behind as her bucket list is complete, having traveled around the world to serve God and the people in places like Canada, Norway, Russia, Finland, Denmark, Greece, Egypt, Jordan, China, Japan, Korea, Sri Lanka, Lebanon, Mexico, as well as visiting the Holy Land in Israel several times.
She leaves behind her family: brother-in-law, Ed Maslowski, Jean Emery, Nancy Maslowski, Mike (Heidi) Tyler, Brock and Reese Maslowski; Mona (Arlen) and Mitch Offord, Jesse and Jodi Smith, Albert and Carter Smith, Jamie and Johnny Sweda; Sally (Keith) and Luke Seaman, Carmen (Brian) and Thomas Abramczak, Sue Leonard, Charlie Maslowski; and her dear friends in Thorp and around the world.
Janice’s final resting place will be Riverside Cemetery, Withee, WI, in a private service. At her request, no services will be held.
