Obituary for Janice M. Blackwell

Janice M. Blackwell
Flemington, NJ


Age 96, died Saturday, January 4, 2020 at the Hunterdon Care Center in Flemington, NJ. Born Janice Mary Ryan and raised in Lawrenceville, where she helped her family in the running of a boardinghouse, she married her husband of 69 years, Robert, in June, 1943. They moved to the farm at the (now) Hunt House on Blackwell Road in Hopewell Twp where they raised their daughter. Later, they moved to a smaller farm on Pennington-Titusville Road, eventually retiring to their house in Shore Acres, Brick Twp. In her last years, she lived with her husband, daughter, and granddaughter’s family at the Blackwell Heritage Farm in Flemington. She was employed by the Hopewell Valley Regional School District for nearly 20 years and was a longtime member of Calvary Baptist Church of Hopewell. Janice was a member of the Lawrenceville Grange, as well as the NJ State Grange, Pomona Grange, and National Grange. She often entered and won flower arranging contests at Grange events, where she and Robert enjoyed an active social life among fellow farmers. She had a lifelong enthusiasm and talent for sewing and could often be found making quilts and lap-robes for veterans and the elderly. She loved flower gardening, had a beautiful array of houseplants, and a wonderful collection of antique colored glass. She loved best of all sharing stories of her life with the three generations of family she lived with.

Mrs. Blackwell is preceded in death by her husband Robert S. Blackwell, her daughter Rosemary B. Greene, step-brother John R. Hart, step sisters Claire Cranstoun and Doris Hart Zapf Hunt.

She is survived by her sister Kathleen R. Topley, grandson Keith Greene and his wife Jennifer; granddaughter Julie VanDoren and her husband Edgar, and their children Jacob and Diana; granddaughter Madelyn Cardona and her husband Jose, and great grandchildren Casandra and Anthony Martinez, and great-great grandson Xavier.
