Janice Elizabeth Coyne of Elkhorn, Wisconsin passed away peacefully in the loving arms of her children on September 25, 2021 at the age of 76.
Janice was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1945 and raised in Iron Mountain, Michigan. At the age of 18, Janice set out to blaze her own trail and to conquer the world; following her passions in life. She became a real estate broker and a commercial Interior Designer, forming her own company called Image Innovators Inc. in the Milwaukee area. She was also a gifted photographer and writer.
Janice had a passion for nature. She loved camping and bonfires. She loved skiing in the mountains, and sailing the sea. She was resilient and strong, and her heart was big. She loved to help others and make people smile; her sense of humor and her laugh were contagious. Most of all, she loved her children, grandchildren and God. Their love for Janice lives forever.
Janice was preceded in death by her daughter Jodi Monosso, and her mother and father, Donald J. and Phyllis E. Coyne.
Loving mother of Susan (Chris) Peck, Jeff (Andrea) Monosso, Jason Monosso (Maegan Smith) and Stacy Monosso (Jennifer Kuhl).
Proud Grandmother to Ashtin, Lauren, Nolan, Grace, William, Rose and Abigail. Friend to many.
A Catholic mass will take place at 10 a.m. on Thursday October 21st at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 225 S. Hartwell Ave, Waukesha, Wisconsin. A private graveside service in Iron Mountain, Michigan will follow.
Contributions in memory of Janice can be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Cancer Research or to Lakeland Animal Shelter in Elkhorn, Wisconsin.
A special thanks to the Hospice and Oncology team at Mercy Health for their dedication and loving care of Janice “the Queen” throughout her journey.
