Janice Florence (Walck) Wick, 80, of Schwenksville, PA, formerly of Medford, NJ and Sanborn, NY, passed away on Wednesday, February 3, 2021. She was born in Sanborn, NY on August 26th, 1940 to the late Edward Philipp Benjamin and Florence Sophia (Pfohl) Walck.
On October 1, 1971, Janice married her love, Martin Anthony “Marty” Wick Jr. She was a committed, caring wife and devoted mother who worked tirelessly to provide a happy life for her family.
She volunteered at her church and worked for many years outside the home at Cigna Insurance.
Janice was characterized as deeply caring, naturally putting other people’s feelings first, and always having a hot meal ready.
Despite moving away from family shortly after marriage, she remained true to her strong, German, Lutheran heritage of Sanborn, NY and worked to ensure that her children were raised “right”. In fact, “Did you go to church this week?” was the first phrase heard on calls home throughout the years.
Janice was a life-long, devout Lutheran and an active member at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Marlton, NJ, prior to recently moving closer to her daughter in Pennsylvania, where she continued to faithfully worship.
Janice is survived by her two children, Martin Anthony (Page) Wick III of Dallas, TX and Rachel Elizabeth (Joshua) Myers of Lansdale, PA; five grandchildren, Amelia Simrall, Josephine Pfhol, and Mary Martin Wick and Joshua John and Justine Elizabeth Myers; twin brother, Jerauld (Kathleen) Walck of Sanborn, NY; sister in-law Carol Walck of Sanborn, NY; Christine G. Wick of Euclid, OH; and brother-in-law, Fulton J. Wick of Perrysburg, OH, as well as 15 nieces and nephews.
Janice was predeceased by her husband, Martin Anthony “Marty” Wick: brothers, Arnold Walck and Gilbert Walck; sister, Norine (Walck) Wendt; brother-in-law, Bertrum Wendt.
Due to the current circumstances, a private service was held at St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Walmore, with the Rev. Thomas Thorstad officiating.
Memorials may be made in Janice’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association (https://www.alz.org/).
Arrangements were made through the RHONEY FUNERAL HOME, Sanborn, NY.
