Janice Louise Holloway, age 84, was called home on August 16th.
She was most recently a resident of Sunrise Assisted Living in Leesburg where she will be greatly missed by the caring staff and her many friends. She is survived by her son Jeffrey Holloway and his fiancé Deanna, daughter Patricia White, son-in-law Craig White, granddaughter Faith White, and grandson Logan White and his wife Christina, and great grandchildren Esmae and Zion. She was recently preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Richard Holloway, her grandson Austin White, her sister Brenda Donley, and daughter Elizabeth Holloway.
She was born January 6, 1934 in Melrose, Massachusetts to John and Verna Lehmann. In 1954, she graduated from Lawrence Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in Medford, Massachusetts. She then moved to Chicago where she met her future husband Richard. Shortly after their marriage in 1956, they moved to Aruba where Jeffrey and Elizabeth were born. After several years, they returned to the United States and made their home in Huntington, New York where Patricia was born. After a move to Maryland, Patricia entered kindergarten and Janice returned to nursing. She touched many lives during her long career as a Registered Nurse working in the neonatal units of several D.C. area hospitals. The family moved to Springfield, Virginia in 1972 where they lived for many years.
Janice was an avid gardener and reader and loved to travel, eat lobsters, and drink coffee and mimosas. In her later years she suffered two strokes that left her disabled and affected her speech, but she maintained her good nature, easy smile, sense of humor, and generous spirit.
A celebration of her life will be held at Cornerstone Chapel, Leesburg on September 8that 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Janice’s honor to your favorite charity.
