Janice Eakins of Ankeny (formerly of West Des Moines) passed from this world on Saturday, March 24th to be reunited in Heaven with her husband Bill, and son Bill Jr. She will be dearly missed by her sons Jerry (Debi) and Jim (Tammy), sister Geraldine Lavia, brother Richard (Arlene) Madsen, 4 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren & 2 great, great grandchildren.
Janice loved spending time with family and friends cooking, baking or just visiting. She enjoyed sharing her famous pie crust recipe with anyone who asked. Sewing and crocheting were a favorite pastime and all new additions to the family enjoyed blankets, afghans or clothes.
Per Janice’s wishes, no services are planned and burial will take place at a later date.
