Janice was born March 1, 1955 in Enid, Oklahoma to Joseph and Betty (McClintock) Ciarla and passed away September 4, 2020 in Enid. She graduated from Enid High School in 1973.

She volunteered her talents to Quilts of Valor, making around 100 quilts to honor servicemen. Everyone in the family has a quilt to remember her by. She was a Corgi lover and had a number of dogs over the years to show and spoil. She also wrote 3 fiction books with the main characters being Corgis. She was writing a fiction story about Alaska when she left us. Many people in Enid benefitted from her kindness with meals, errands and sewing.

She is survived by her parents; sisters, Waynetta (Bob) Newsom and Cheryl Beck; brothers, Steve (Geraldine) Ciarla and Andy (Linda) Ciarla. A host of nieces, nephews, cousins, great nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her grandparents.

I haven’t known Janice as long as a lot of you have! But at least for about 7 years she popped in our quilt store and immediately fell in love with her,we hit it off. Anytime she called and needed help with quilts of valor, we came thru for her. She was just in our store , I will miss her smile and upbeat attitude ,rip my friend.

Janice and I became good friends when we met at the dog park three years ago. We always had a good time visiting while the dogs played. She was a very nice person and would do just about anything a person asked of her. I will miss her greatly and still can’t believe she is gone. Rest In Peace dear friend. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

In 1981, while Janice and I were serving in the US Air Force at Clear Air Force Station Alaska, i took her out to property i recently purchased, where I planned to build a log cabin. I built a small campfire and she patiently sat on a log while I chopped down the very first tree for a cabin log. I took her on her very first canoe ride at a nearby lake. And I did a trip with her into Denali National Park Alaska. She loved every minute of it! I will miss her sense of humor and I will never forget her.

Janice was a kind and talented person. I went to Longfellow and EHS with her. We were later reunited when she took my job at Enid Grain Inspection. I always enjoyed seeing her picture in the newspaper or her name mentioned when a veteran received one of her beautiful quilts . Thoughts and prayers for her family.

Janice was such a special friend. We we’re friends since the 4th grade. She had the gift of giving.She loved to give her beautiful quilts away. Every one was made with love and her sewing perfection. They were such a Blessing to the soldiers and Veterans and who ever received them. I loved her laugh and great sense of humor. Enjoy your mansion in Heaven you deserve it sweet friend!!
