Janie attended the Lenox Christian Fellowship Church and enjoyed doing crafts, playing cards and board games.  She was an all-around people person, loving her family and was the favorite aunt of numerous nieces and nephews.

Survivors include four siblings, Patti (Ron) Ensell of Ashtabula, Russ Chapin of Las Vegas, NV, Sue (John) Edwards of Chula Vista, CA & David (Edie) Chapin of Payson, AZ.  Her parents, a brother, John Chapin and her beloved dog, Rivet all preceded her in death.
