Janice A. Van BlaricomMarch 3, 1944 ~ January 15, 2018 (age 73)
Janice Van Blaricom, 73, of Missoula, Montana, passed away on Monday, January 15, 2018. On this beautiful sunny day, the skies opened and she left this stage of her life surrounded by the two brothers she adored and cherished, Joseph and Gary Van Blaricom. In true Janice spirit, she was telling stories nearly to the end.
There's not one word that describes Janice. She could be a bit complicated. Stubborn, spiritual, compassionate, funny, loving, gardener, nature lover, feisty, determined, lover of all 4 legged animals, loyal, and a true friend covers just a few accolades. She may have thrown a temper tantrum a time or two; but that's what we loved about her.
She will be dearly missed by her brothers and their wives, Debra and Jelaine. She was most proud of her nieces and nephews, Clinton, (Desiree) and their children, Rachel and Isaac, Angela and her children, Devon and Tyler, Rae and her children Taylor, Carson and Miles. She is also survived by her partner, Robert Bilich.
There is a multitude of women friends who are heartbroken to lose a friend who loved them unconditionally.
She was preceded in death by her parents Taylor and Gladys Van Blaricom and niece Julie Van Blaricom.
A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, January 17, 11:00 A.M. at the Wilsall Cemetery where she had many fond memories. Celebration of life will follow at Rae Van Blaricom’s home, 421 South 12th Street, Livingston at approximately 1:00 P.M.
Arrangements are under the care of Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory.
