Janice Irene Danford, 57, of Georgetown, Texas passed away on Sept. 21, 2013, of recurring cancer, after nearly 10 years in remission.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, in the Chapel of Ramsey Funeral Home with Shane Blackshear officiating.
Janice was born on April 25, 1956, in Pecos, Texas to her loving parents, Harold and Helen (Riddle) Danford. She attended Elbow Elementary and graduated from Big Spring High School in 1974. At the age of 11, Janice competed in the Junior Olympics Swimming Trials. Her love for swimming took her to West Texas State, where she had a diving and swim team scholarship.
Janice moved several times before settling in Georgetown, where she was the co-owner of both Perseus and Medusa Software Company. Janice's favorite job and first love was being a mother to her three children: Troy, Jasa, and Katie. After her family, she derived great joy from being anywhere near the water and helping others in their times of need. Her door was always open to anyone and was fondly referred to as "momma" by other children she looked after and loved. Janice was an exceptionally kind-hearted person and will be deeply missed by all those she touched with her unique spirit and love for life.
Janice was preceded in death by her father, Harold Danford.
To cherish her memory, Janice leaves behind her mother, Helen Alexander of Brownwood, Texas; son, Troy Pruitt of Austin, Texas; daughters: Jasa Flowers and Katie Flowers both of Georgetown; stepdaughter, Heather Nathonson-Flowers of Austin, Texas; three brothers: Chris Danford and wife Robin of Arlington, Texas, Mike Danford of Arizona, Harold Danford and wife Wendy of Kerrville, Texas; sister, Heddy Wigington and husband Lynn of Big Spring, Texas; seven nieces and nephews; and five great nieces and nephews.
The family is grateful for the dedicated care Janice received from Gayle, Heather, Nancy, and all of the staff of Scott & White Hospice and Home Care.
Memorial donations may be made to Scott & White Hospice and Home Care, 2401 South 31st Street, Temple Texas 76508.
