Janice E. Vanden Heuvel, age 81 passed away at her Appleton Retirement Community home.
Janice was the oldest of four children born to Charles and Mary (Kerkhoff) Janssen.
Janice was a graduate of Kaukauna High School and soon after graduating, she met and then married the love of her life Jerome Vanden Heuvel. Janice and Jerome began their family soon after their wedding and proceeded to have five children whom she raised with a tough yet guiding hand. When Jerome passed away at an early age, Janice went to work for the family.
She was a tough lady, filled with strength that carried her through difficult times. She is remembered for her enjoyment of all the reality shows as well as some of the “old fashioned” soap operas. She loved to play Bingo with her friends at ARC, and was a well-loved member of their community.
Janice is survived by her brothers: Charles Jr. (Jo Ellen) Janssen and Daniel “Banjo” Janssen; children: Randy Vanden Heuvel, Lori (Wayne) Brockman, Lynn Vanden Heuvel, Mark Vanden Heuvel and Mary (Rick) Landeau; grandson Andy (Amy) Barth and great grandchildren: Hannah and Mason.
Greeting Janice at the gates of Heaven were her husband Jerome (Who, no doubt is still in love with her after 41 years); her parents Charles and Mary and sister Ellen (Thomas) Wendt.
A memorial service will be held for Janice at Wichmann Jansen Fargo Funeral Home 204 E Kimberly Ave, Kimberly on Wednesday July 6, 2022 at 11:00 am. Friends and family may gather at the funeral home from 10:00am until the start of service. Janice will be laid to rest next to her husband Jerome at Holy Name Cemetery, Kimberly.
