July 15, 1941 - January 14, 2021
Janice Sharon Kolaski was born July 15, 1941 in Superior, MI the daughter of the late John Sr. and Helen Willram Kolaski. Janice will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew her. In spite of the many difficulties caused by physical disabilities, she possessed a sweet spirit and gentle, fun-loving nature that overcame barriers and won many hearts. Janice was never one to complain or say, "I can't." She always tried her best at everything she did. She very much enjoyed going to work and study at the Developmental Center in Selmer where she had many friends. She was very sociable and loved going shopping, out to eat and fun activities with other developmental center clients. She loved music and played the harmonica. She enjoyed arts and crafts and was very creative. Her deep love of her Catholic faith was an inspiration to her church family at St. Jude where she was active in religious education, parish committees, and was always ready to learn and serve in any way she could. Janice enjoyed watching EWTN and other Christian television and movies. She loved looking at picture bibles and learning about her faith. She kept a picture of Jesus always near her bed. Janice received excellent care at the local group homes, most recently at the Level III group home in Selmer. The staff there was very compassionate, treated her with dignity and made her last homebound months very special. Nursing and ministerial staff from Tennessee Quality Hospice gave her exceptional care as well, and supported and instructed the group home caregivers to assist Janice's transition into the final stages of her life in a calm, loving and respectful way. Janice departed this life on January 14, 2021 in Selmer, Tennessee at the age of 79 Years, 5 Months, 30 Days. She is survived by a great niece, Destiny White; a special friend, Cathy Roy of Selmer, TN; and her beloved church and developmental center families. In addition to her parents, Janice was preceded in death by a brother, John Kolaski, Jr.
