Obituary for Janice Moore Kisthardt

Janice E. Moore Kisthardt of Princeton died on February 2nd at Princeton Medical Center, four days before her 74th birthday. Her death was caused chiefly from advanced pulmonary fibrosis, but she also suffered the effects of pernicious anemia and had waged a 50-year struggle with Type 1 diabetes.

Daughter of the late Evelyn D. and Orville E. Moore, Janice was born in Trenton and spent her youth in Morrisville, PA. She was a member of the Morrisville High School class of 1964 and was piano accompanist for choral groups and musicals. She earned her B.S. in Music Education and M.A. in Music degrees from West Chester State College (now University), West Chester, PA, and her Master of Library Science degree from Rutgers University. Early professional positions included teacher of elementary music for Neshaminy School District, Langhorne, PA and Grey Nun Academy, Yardley, PA; and Librarian Intern at Trenton Public Library. She held librarian positions at Villa Victoria Academy; Grundy Memorial Library, Bristol, PA; Bucks County Community College; Pennwood Library, Langhorne, PA; and she retired from a library faculty position at The College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College). Her joy at the college library was derived from developing the children’s literature collection for the use of future elementary teachers.

Janice attended Presbyterian churches for much of her life and sang alto in church choirs. At her death, she was a parishioner of All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Princeton, where she served on the Flower Committee.

She is survived by her husband of not quite 51 years, James, her daughter Joan Kisthardt, son-in-law Noah Lovitz-Wolfson, and granddaughter Mika Brooke Kisthardt-Wolfson, all of Oakland, CA. Other survivors: Cousins Grace C. Starrett of Ewing Twp., Marilyn Schultz of Pearland, TX, and Donald DeGrave of Cinnaminson, NJ; brother-in-law John Kisthardt (Sara) of Slatington, PA; nieces Dr. Anne Kisthardt of Alexandria, VA and Allison Kisthardt of New York City; and dear friends.

Memorial contributions may be made to All Saints’ Church, 16 All Saints’ Rd., Princeton, NJ 08540; to Nassau Presbyterian Church, 61 Nassau St., Princeton, NJ 08542; and SAVE, A Friend to Homeless Animals, 1010 Route 601, Skillman, NJ 08558.
