Janice Taberski, 77
Born: Dec. 27, 1952
Died: July 7, 2012
Janice Rochelle Taberski, 77, of Niles, passed away Saturday, July 7, 2012, in her home after a long courageous battle with cancer. She overcame two different types of cancer, but the third cancer was too much, and the Lord called her home.
In Dec. 27, 1952, she married Walter Joseph Taberski. Jan was the anchor of the family. She would always host holiday dinners and welcome friends and others to join. She enjoyed raising her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She even had a special playroom in her house full of love and fun.
Jan was a very social person. She loved traveling, camping and meeting people at the various events she attended. She enjoyed swimming, skiing, ice skating, roller skating in her early years with her grandchildren and taking them to garage sales. Most of all she enjoyed going to the casino with her son and gambling buddies.
She was devoted to her family and would support them in each endeavor. For all the kids she would support them by sitting in the stands, bleachers or in her chair at their sport events rain or shine and even snow.
Jan will be deeply missed by her family and friends. Jan was blessed to have found a wonderful church home, which she loved and was baptized in 2010.
Jan was preceded in death by her parents, Max and Gladys Schechter; her brother, Gerald Schechter; and her loving aunt, Victoria Ressler.
Jan is survived by her husband, Walter; daughter Sue (Rick) Ingle, of Dowagiac; son, Bruce (Anita) Taberski, of Niles; brother, Roger (Anna Marie) Schechter, of Shelbyville, Ky.; granddaughter, Judith (Larry) Burger; grandsons, Nathan (Kimberly) Knapp, Brian (Jessi) Taberski and Bryce Taberski, all of Niles; Joshua (Erica) Knapp, of Mishawaka, Ind.; great-grandchildren Austin, Dalton, Carson and Ellie Knapp, Mason, Parker and Olivia Taberski and Peyton and Aubrey Burger.
