Janice I. Knowles, 78

Janice I. Knowles passed away on Wednesday, April 30, 2008 at The Orchard Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in North Granville.
Janice was born on August 22, 1929 in Granville, the daughter of Reed and Irene (Gregory) Stewart.
Janice and her husband Don were longtime active members of both the VFW and American Legion in Granville. Janice enjoyed “Country Fest,” which is an annual weekend gathering of country music fans at her daughter Kelly Goodspeed’s home in Middle Granville. She looked forward to the event and attended every one. This was an extension of her love of music. Janice always enjoyed being with her family and friends, but her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the real apples of her eye.
Janice was predeceased by her husband, Donald Knowles, and six brothers and sisters. Survivors are her son, Bruce Knowles, and his wife, Judy, of Granville; a daughter, Kelly Goodspeed and her husband, Stacey, of Middle Granville; a brother-in-law, William Knowles, and his wife, Lois, and two sisters-in-law, Mary Stewart and Pauline Winfield. Also surviving are four grandchildren: Kacey and Karley Goodspeed, Scott Knowles and his wife, Jennifer, of Granville, and Jason Knowles and his wife, Dena, of Oneonta, N.Y. and two great-grandchildren, Hailey and Logan Knowles.  In addition, several nieces and nephews also survive her. Though Janice is survived by many dear friends, one in particular was her special friend Irene Stoddard.
A funeral service was held on Saturday, May 3, at noon at the Robert M. King Funeral Home at 23 Church Street in Granville, with the Rev. Donald Pepper officiating. Burial  followed at Elmwood Cemetery in Middle Granville. Friends called at the funeral home before the service.
The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff at The Orchard Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for the loving care given to Janice and the friendships made both with Janice and the family.
