In Memory of
JANICE F. NAJARIAN
“Seeing is believing.” For many, those words simply represent a motto, but for Janice F. Najarian, it summarized in every way, who she was. She was modest, quiet and observant, taking in everything around her and always thinking before acting. She was a realist, someone who was efficient and practical in everything she did. She was a friendly person who truly cared about those around her. Janice was born on October 2, 1943 at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecticut. She was the daughter of Michael and Flora Cioppa. Raised in Trumball, Connecticut, she was brought up to be tolerant and trustworthy. As a child, she learned to be conscientious, responsible and punctual, which were all traits that she would carry with her throughout her life. As a young girl, Janice was always aware of how others around her felt and this quality served her well. With a deep capacity to tolerate the feelings of others, Janice was generally able to avoid conflicts. It seemed as if Janice was the family member who was always working to keep stress at bay. Preferring a quiet environment where she could concentrate, Janice also had the ability to relate well with her family and friends. Janice was raised with two brothers. She had one older brother, Michael and one younger brother, Robert. Janice was constantly involved in activities with her family. Janice and her siblings had the typical rivalries while growing up but they deeply cared for each other.
Janice was a long time resident of Las Vegas, Nevada.
