Janice Jones, 49, passed away suddenly on April 29th, 2022. She was born in Kentucky, but spent her formative years in Kalispell, Montana.

Her journey continued to Arizona where she built a career in lab sciences and raised a family. At work, she was an innovator, leader, and mentor. At home, she was a proud mom, loving sister and wonderful aunt. She will forever be known for her sharp wit, infectious smile, and heart of gold. She was a trivia buff, a lover of music and travel, and enjoyed spending time hiking and camping.
