Age 87, of Venetia, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 12, 2019.

Janice L. (Smith) Fickter was born on October 27, 1932 in Allen, Nebraska to Roscoe and Minnie Smith. Janice worked at various places in Sioux City, Iowa, where she met her former husband David Fickter (now deceased) while he was serving in the Air Force. They had two sons from this marriage, Charles and Donald. The family moved to Pittsburgh in 1957. In 1963 the family moved to Peters Township where Janice has resided since.

Janice worked at the Peters Township High School cafeteria. She also worked at the former McMurray Dairy Bar part time. In January 1982 Janice started to work for Consolidated Graphic Communication and worked there until 2015. Janice was a member of the Peters Creek Presbyterian Church on Brookwood Road for 44 years. She served as a Sunday school teacher and as a Deacon. She was also a member of Peters Creek United Presbyterian Church USA. In 2014 she joined the John McMillan Presbyterian Church.
