Janis Margaret (Roe) Crozier, 75, went home to be with the Lord and her family who have gone before her on Thursday, August 9, 2012.
Janis was the first New Year's Baby in 1937 in Wood County. She was born to Charles Sherman "Bus" and Kathryn (Farquharson) Roe during a New Year's Eve party at her Aunt Geraldine's home. The doctor put her in a basket behind the stove to keep her warm. Janis grew up on Main Street and graduated from Weston High School, where she was homecoming attendant and cheerleader with her circle of forever friends: Ann, Kay, Arlene, Nancy, and twins Billie and Binnie. Janis was married for 22 years to her high school sweetheart, Jerry, who was a rival from Tontogany. They had 4 children: Rusty, Ricky, Kathi, and Judi. Janis and Jerry were owners of Crozier Ford Sales in Weston, Ohio, where she was the Office Manager and Bookkeeper. Janis was a member of the Order of the Eastern Stars, Greenwood Chapter #159.
Preceding her in death were beloved parents; brother, Jim; daughters, Rusty and Kathi; best friend, Jan; and faithful sight dog, Abby. Surviving to cherish her memory are son, Rick Crozier; daughter, Judi Roe; grandsons, Justin, Brandon, Braden, and Jared; great grandson, Kortland; special nieces, nephews and friends.
Family was the most important thing to Janis. She enjoyed old photos and tracking her roots. Family vacations in Canada, water skiing, fishing, gardening and dancing were some of her favorite activities. Janis loved every aspect of nature and had a soft spot for any kind of animal. She was active in the lives of her family and friends. She was a volunteer for the Rainbow Girls and the Otsego High School Music Boosters.
In her later years, Janis was known for her perfectly crocheted blankets and homemade bread, which she generously shared with everyone. She loved cooking spaghetti dinners for her grandsons. Janis enjoyed listening to many stories on her talking books.
She was an inspiration to all who knew her, as she lived her life independently with no complaints, always thinking of others first. Janis had a huge heart and lit up a room when she walked in. Even blindness and deafness could not break her positive attitude and gentle spirit. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Family will greet relatives and friends at a graveside memorial service in the Weston Cemetery on Tuesday, August 14th at 11:00 am. A celebration of life will follow at Judi's home. Donations may be made to The Sight Center of Northwest Ohio or the Weston Public Library.
Arrangements have been entrusted with the LOOMIS-HANNEMAN FUNERAL HOME, 20375 E. Taylor Street/P.O. Box 212, Weston, Ohio 43569, Tele: 419-669-0504.
