Jan grew up and attended college in Webster and Aberdeen, South Dakota. In 1958, she moved to Los Angeles, Californiawhere she met and married Ron (Roland) Barthel, her husband of 56 years. In 1969, she and Ron moved to Sweet Home and lived there since.

Janice was an elementary school music teacher and taught at several of the Sweet Home elementary schools.

She enjoyed quilting, sewing, gardening, and canning. She loved rock climbing, being a private pilot, and musicals—especially the Sweet Home Singing Christmas Tree. Most of all, she loved the Black Hills of South Dakota where she spent summers as a child. She owned a cabin in Camp Remington.
