Janice R. Cron, age 78, of Coffeyville, Kansas, passed away on July 7, 2023. Born on July 1, 1945, in Minot, North Dakota, Janice was a loving, thoughtful, funny, and smart woman who brought joy to all who knew her. She was a person of many talents and interests, with an especially keen mind for numbers and a heart for family. \n\nJanice's journey through life was marked by a spirit of resilience and dedication. After growing up and attending school in Minot, she took on the responsibility of being an X-ray Technician for several years. Following the completion of her children's education, Janice moved to Mesa, Arizona, where she served as an Accounts Payable Clerk for Arizona State University for 25 years. Even after her retirement, she remained in Mesa before moving to Coffeyville two years ago to be closer to her family. Throughout her life, Janice was known for her loving and humorous nature, and her intellect was a guiding light for many. In her leisure time, Janice enjoyed reading and watching old westerns on TV. However, what mattered most to her was her family, especially her cherished grandchildren.\n\nJanice is survived by her son, Dennis (Shawna) Cron Jr; her daughter, Kelly (David) Hooper; and her sister, Jackie Schmeichel; eleven grandchildren, twenty-two great-grandchildren, and her longtime love and friend Duaine Dennett. She was preceded in death by her parents, Warren and Isabelle Grendik, and her brother, Tom Grendik. Janice's love, wisdom, and laughter will forever remain in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to have known her.\n\nFollowing Janice's wishes cremation has taken place under the direction of the David W. Barnes Funeral Home in Coffeyville. There are no services planned at this time.\n\nWe invite all who knew Janice to share their memories and photographs on her memorial page at www.dwbfh.com. It is in these cherished recollections that her spirit will continue to thrive.
