September 22, 1949-February 6, 2022
Janice Louise (Frederick) Lenich, 72, of Richmond, VA passed away peacefully on February 6, 2022 in the comfort of her home surrounded by her two daughters.
She was born September 22, 1949 in Pottstown, PA to Harry and Jane Frederick. She was the eldest sibling to her sister Patricia and brother David. Growing up she enjoyed playing sports, especially softball and field hockey. She graduated from Owen J. Roberts in 1967 and worked as a data processor for many years. She married in June of 1975 and later gave birth to two daughters, Laura and Karen. Janice dedicated herself as a wife and mother. She enveloped herself in her children’s lives and activities. She was the softball coach of their middle school team. Janice loved everything “arts and crafts”, painting, and crocheted beautiful blankets throughout her lifetime. She was a wonderful and loving grandmother to four grandsons. She later moved to Richmond, VA to be closer to her family. Her life-long love for animals led her to adopting her cat Paul from the SPCA. The two had an inseparable bond. Janice became a social butterfly at her apartment complex and made many friends. She helped decorate for every holiday and was on the event planning committee. She organized an adult coloring club and crochet/knitting club. Janice would lend a hand to anyone in need. Her kind, loving and innocent spirit will always be remembered.
