SPRING GLEN - Janice Elvira Lance Rowley, age 65, died on Jan. 9, 2008 of complications due to adrenal cancer.
Born in Moab to Howard Lance and Ireta Hansen, she took great pride in her parents and delighted in her five sisters and brother.
She credited growing up on the farm as having fashioned the strong work ethic with which she governed her life.
Mom's faith in Jesus Christ was the guiding force in all she did.
She took great joy in being a mother. We always felt her love and concern for us. She knew we were capable of anything. She was our greatest advocate.
Mom adored her 17 grandchildren and they adored her. She was willing to do anything for them.

Everyone who knew them was keenly aware of their special bond.
Mom was a master teacher who took great pride and delight in the hundreds of students she taught over the course of many years as an elementary school teacher. Her care and skill in preparing stimulating well-crafted lessons was legendary.

One of the great experiences of her life was serving a full-time LDS mission with Roger to the New Jersey-Camden mission and serving as a temple worker in the Manti LDS Temple.
We feel so inadequate to sum up a life like Mom's in a few words.
Mom leaves a legacy of love, service and testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
