Janice Meyer

December 8, 1937 — May 17, 2021

Janice L. Meyer, 83, of Downingtown, PA, passed peacefully on May 17, 2021.

Born in Darby, PA, Janice was the daughter of the late John and Violet (nee Smith) Gallen. Janice was the beloved wife of the late John W. Meyer, who passed in 2018, shortly after they celebrated 50 years of marriage.

She was the loving mother to John Elliott (Debbie), Linda Elliott (Dave Strommer), Robyn Stratton (John), Heather Lebano (Jon), and David Meyer (Bethany).
Janice, known to her grandchildren as Bubbé, was the wonderful grandmother to Bryan Elliott, Johnny Elliott, Daniel Ropski, Lauren Elliott, Jesse Strommer, Erik Stratton, Andrew Stratton, Luke Stratton, Scott Stratton, Sophia Lebano, Ian Lebano, Olivia Lebano, Isabelle Lebano, Trevor Meyer, Sammy Meyer, Alex Meyer, and Chase Meyer. She is also the great-grandmother of 5.

Janice graduated from Jefferson and Widener Universities and worked for many years as a nurse at Taylor Hospital, a home care nurse, hospice nurse, and a nurse Coordinator at Presbyterian Hospital. She also had her Early Childhood Teaching Degree. Janice taught Montessori School for several years while being a full-time mom and finishing her nursing degree. Besides spending time with her family, she was passionate about cooking, crafting, gardening, and being at the beach. Large holiday dinner celebrations with her family brought her the greatest source of joy. She was a talented seamstress and had a great love for plants and books.

She spent her life caring for others, whether that be her family, her aging parents, at the schools where she taught, or the patients she took care of as a nurse. Janice so dearly loved her family. Her smile lit up a room, and she loved to laugh along with everyone else. While Janice courageously lived with MS for the last 15 years, she always laughed at herself. An avid lover of Disney, EWTN-Global Catholic Network, the Bible, the Rosary, her children, and grandchildren, Janice always made sure to let you know she loved you. Her sign-off texts each night included, "I love you so very much and If the Good Lord Gives me another Day."

Janice was a resident at St. Martha’s Villa and Center in Downingtown, PA for the past three years, where she received exceptional love and care. Her family will be forever grateful for the acts of service and gifts of love she experienced during her time there.

Janice's funeral mass will be 11:00 AM Friday, May 21, 2021 at St. Patrick Church, 104 Channing Avenue, Malvern, PA.
