Janice M. Abney passed away peacefully on August 17, 2017 with her loving family by her side. Janice was born on April 16, 1925 and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She attended the University of Oklahoma, where she was a member of Delta Gamma sorority and remained an avid Sooners fan her entire life.

Janice married the love of her life, Louis D. Abney on June 15, 1945 and they enjoyed 59 wonderful years together. She was a longtime Toledo resident and active volunteer in the American Red Cross, Junior League, and Washington Church. She was also a passionate board member and advocate for The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and Rescue-Crisis, raising community awareness and support for these important organizations.

Janice's chosen career was homemaker and she excelled in this role as a beloved wife and mother. She was an excellent cook and hostess, with a keen interest in others. Janice also enjoyed decorating, playing bridge, watching the news and classic movies. She was a kind and compassionate woman with a quick wit and fun spirit. She developed many close friends throughout her lifetime and will be sorely missed by her family and friends.

Janice was preceded in death by her cherished husband, Louis D. Abney, mother, father, sister and brother. She is survived by her devoted children, Janet Moore (Bill), Chevy Chase, Maryland, Mary Lou Abney, Chicago, Illinois and son Louis D. Abney III, Toledo, Ohio; grandchildren, Joel Moore (Dr. Raga Ramachandran), San Francisco, California, Lindsay Moore, Washington D.C. and great-granddaughter, Irene Ramachandran Moore.

The Abney family gives special thanks to Becky and Barry Vincent, whose loving support provided her much happiness over the past seven years and to her outstanding caregiving team at Sunset House, where she lived for two years.

Janice was laid to rest in a private graveside service on Tuesday, August 22, 2017. A memorial service celebrating her life will be announced and held in Spring 2018. Arrangements entrusted to the Foth-Dorfmeyer Mortuary.
