Janice was born in Media, Pennsylvania to the late Nicholas H. Wagner III and Olive Snow (Reven) Wagner. Upon her family settling in Princeton, she attended local schools and graduated from Wachusett Regional High School, Class of 1968. She obtained her degree from Endicott College and spent her career in the fashion industry. Jan was full of life, our explorer at heart, she traveled the world from Europe to Africa, to the Western deserts-living the tent life with Bedouins, to fossil digging in Nevada, always open to any adventure. She loved animals and was an accomplished horseback rider. She always had a book to read, a kind word for others, and was happiest in the company of family and friends. Jan, you are free at last to walk among your spirit animals and dwell within the moon’s light. Funeral services will be held privately while entrusted to the care of the Philbin-Comeau Funeral Home, 176 Water St., Clinton.
