Janice Ann Mero, age 64, passed away on Saturday, March 11, 2023, with her loving sons by her side.
Janice was born on December 11, 1958, in Wyandotte, Michigan, to Howard and Jean (Cheney) Carey.
She grew up between Atlanta and Gaylord, Michigan, and graduated from Gaylord High School in 1977.
She held many different roles and titles over the years, but being a full-time mom to her two sons, Joel and Curtis, was her greatest passion.
Janice was known for her infectious smile and laughter, and the love that she had for the people in her life. She was happiest with her toes in the sand, on a warm, sunny day, or sitting around a table playing games and enjoying conversations and laughter and enjoying holidays with family and friends. She also loved dancing to her favorite music and spending time vacationing with her siblings. Her most recent joy in life was her role as a grandma, and she cherished the memories that she made with her granddaughter, Ella, and loved getting to meet her newest granddaughter, Sophia.
Janice is survived by her sons, Joel (Brittany) Mero of Alma, Michigan, and Curtis Mero of Gaylord; her granddaughters, Ella and Sophia Mero; her siblings, Cheryl (Frank) Kucharek, Tim (Cara Kinnear) Carey, Jeff (Julie Lanctot) Carey, Dale (Robin) Carey, and Lynn (Ron) Welker; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends.
Janice was preceded in death by her parents, Howard, and Jean Carey.
