Janice passed away on December 30, 2018 peacefully with her family by her side at the Assisted Living at the Hemingford Community Care Center. She was born May 20, 1939 to Eugene and Violet Bussen.
Janice worked for the Hemingford Ledger prior to having kids and helping on the family farm. She enjoyed her family more than anything. She married Darrel Annen on September 19, 1959. To this union were born John and Lori. She was so very active in their lives, helping with webelos and blue birds. She also enjoyed her Extension Club and all the women that were involved. She had many good memories of events and crafts which they did. She loved to sew clothes for family and friends and enjoyed embroidering whatever came her way. In later years, she enjoyed the “Bunco” girls. Many memories were made during game nights. Her grandchildren were the light of her life. She truly loved teaching them how to shoot blackbirds and rabbits; drive the “stick” pickup, cook, crafts and most of all play.
