Janice took me under her wing when we met at De Soto Elementary. She was always helpful and concerned for her students, their families, and fellow educators. We shared many laughs and tears over the years and I am going to miss her quirky sense of humor, compassion and love and that polka dot dress. I was so blessed to call her my friend. Love and big hugs to all of you. Patsy

Although I didn’t work directly with Janice, I knew her. I enjoyed getting to know her better after retirement while attending our “Retros” lunches. She was a lovely person, always so positive and warm. What on earth will happen to all the unused yarn in this world without her? 🙂

I have known Janice for a long time. We were friends and fellow teachers. We are both KCK gals, and we both graduated from different high schools in 1959. She always teased me about being the older one. We were both born in 1941, but my birthday was about 6 weeks before hers. We had fun with that. She was great person, kind and helpful to everyone. I wish all of her family peace, love, and my sympathy for your loss. She will be remembered fondly by me and her many students and the teachers she worked with.

Janice was such a caring,thoughtful person. When we first moved to the same neighborhood in 1971, she was the first person to introduce herself. Realizing all we had for furniture were beds, she and her husband brought over a table and chairs and a TV. Our three young ones under the age of 4 were delighted. We will always remember your generosity. We will always remember you.

Janice was my lifeline in high school. My mother was bipolar and often deeply depressed. My stepfather -- even after the divorce -- haunted my life. I was always afraid of what either one might do. She gave me a safe harbor. Even though Janice's life was not perfect, she was a perfect friend to me. She was one of my Bride's maids. I was saddened when "life" disrupted our relationship. We saw little of each other after our respective marriages. We only got to renew our friendship after I started going to the luncheons. It was like we had not been apart at all. We started in talking as if we had talked just the day before. I miss her specialness. I miss the girl she was. I am sad at our loss. She was a mighty friend to many people.

I would like to express my deepest condolences to Dwane and the rest of the Warner family. I never met Janice, but I have worked with her son Dwane for many years. If you can tell anything about a mother by the character of her children then Janice must have been a fine and caring human being. Dwane is one of the finest human beings I know and I am deeply saddened by his loss. I know that Dwane is spiritual and will find comfort in his faith in our Savior Jesus Christ. He knows that his mother is in a better place free from the suffering of our earth bound existence. Janice is resting in God's loving arms.

I worked with Janice at DeSoto Elementary/Countryside Elementary. I was the school secretary and when we began installing computers in our office/classrooms, Janice was a life-saver. I could always count on her to get me out of "sticky computer situations". Janice was also a great personal friend to me. We could discuss problems with each other without worrying about anything going outside of our conversations. Janice loved the Lord and was never ashamed to share His love with others. Even though I have not seen her outside of our "Retro" luncheons since retirement, she was always a gem with a funny wit and common sense advice. I will miss her but am grateful she is in a happier place. Everyone who worked with Janice will always remember her "polka dot dress" she wore the first day of school! I am a better person for having had her pass through my life. Prayers for her family and special friends.

Today heaven gained a spirited Angel! Janice was a wonderful woman and a very special teacher. I’m so grateful for my time spent with her teaching the littles of DeSoto. I will forever remember that dry humor and big heart! Thank you Janice. You made a difference in the lives of many! Rest In Peace. ❤️

Mrs. Warner was my daughter Nicole's (Gibbens) kindergarden teacher for the school year of 1990-1991. I was a single parent and at one of the parent-teacher conferences she was the first person to acknowledge to me the struggle I faced of being a single parent. I couldn't hold the tears back. She was a very special lady. My sincere condolences to her family, and many friends. Alicia Hamm

Mrs. Warner was my first experience with school as a student. Kindergarten felt welcoming and exciting because of her. I am so thankful that I was in her class because now as a teacher myself I try to reflect the same attributes to my young students that Mrs. Warner showed me. My condolences to her family, but my sincere thanks to Mrs. Warner for those Kindergarten hugs and passion for learning.
