Janice F. Fraley

Nov. 26, 1939 – Nov. 5, 2019

On Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019, Janice F. Fraley, loving wife and mother to five children, grandmother to 11 grandchildren and great-grandmother to 15 great-grandchildren, passed away just shy of her 80th birthday.

Janice was the oldest of six children, born on Nov. 26, 1939 in Davenport, Iowa to Howard and Clarissa Waltman. Her family moved to California where she met and married Donald E. Fraley. There they raised four boys, Gary, Terry, Kevin and Kenny and one daughter, Tracy.

Janice worked for Bourns Inc. for 19 years before moving to Kansas. After her husband’s death in 2005, Janice moved to Alaska to be near three of her five children.

Janice had a way of making everyone she met feel special and loved. She never met a stranger. Janice loved spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren taking them on many adventures. She was Grandma Honey to all and all that needed a Grandma Honey. Janice had a quick wit, advice (wanted or not), a smile, and a compassionate spirit. She was truly one of a kind.

She is survived by her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, a sister, a brother, many in-laws, nieces and nephews.

A celebration of her life will be held in the summer of 2020.
