On March 16, 2023, Janice Mary Petersen was escorted by the angels to heaven. Janice was born on March 17, 1930 in Brooklyn, NY. She was predeceased by her parents Veronica Britsch and William Lawrence, as well as her husband Hans. She is survived by her three loving children, Gayle Petersen, Richard Petersen (Jane) and Debi Petersen. She also leaves behind her beloved grandchildren Kristina Darrol (Andy), Ashley Moore (Andy), Meredith Petersen (Dustin) and Hayden Petersen (Lauren) as well as her great grandchildren Lucas Darrol, Logan Darrol, Lincoln Darrol, Marisol Petersen and Cameron Varney. They were her pride and joy. In addition, she leaves behind nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews, and her devoted and loving caregiver Robbi Fedor. Janice was loved by all who knew her and she was known for her kind and generous heart. She would often send cards of encouragement to people she barely knew if they were going through a tough time. Janice and her late husband Hans (The Chicken Man) were avid hockey fans and held season tickets at the arena for over 40 years. She was a huge animal lover and her granddogs that she took care of during the week, Oliver and Atticus, are also feeling the loss. She volunteered for the March of Dimes for many years and delivered donations of supplies to the Broome County Humane Society every two weeks until she could no longer physically do it. Her positive and encouraging spirit and beautiful heart will be missed by her family and friends. Janice is now at peace and in the company of her loving husband, Hans. Out of respect for Janice's wishes, there will be no services. Those who wish to express their condolences may do so by donating to either the Broome County Humane Society, 167 Conklin Ave., Binghamton, NY 13903 or St. Jude’s Children's Hospital, www.stjude.org, both of which she supported.
